Summary "Taken as a whole, the book covers a wide range of medical, obstetrical and fetal complications. Each chapter in the book concerns a single patient with a problem in clinical obstetrics. Some of the authors based their chapters on actual patients, although names and medical details were altered; others described a patient who was a composite. Each chapter begins with a description of the patient at presentation and concludes with delivery of the infant. The student is asked a number of multiple-choice questions, usually concerning management of the patient, and the correct answer is then explained. In addition, each chapter has didactic sections covering areas such as pathophysiology, not amenable to a multiple-choice format. The patient care described in these chapters is based on current evidence and recommendations, and thus represents our optimum faculty input. We chose not to reference each statement, but each chapter concludes with a list of references for additional reading. The old saying is that "good judgment comes from experience". We hope that you, the trainee, will use this book to get practical experience with patients, some of whom you may never have met, and some of whom may seem all too familiar"--Provided by publisher
