Obstetrics and the Newborn: An Illustrated Textbook
Elsevier Health Sciences
Norman A. Beischer
3 Rev ed
The third edition of this highly popular text has been extensively revised to reflect the modern practice of obstetrics and care of the newborn baby. As before, the authors provide comprehensive, authoritative advice, in sufficient detail to satisfy the needs of the medical student and the midwife in training or in practice. Technological and laboratory advances since the last edition are incorporated fully, and the role that these new methods can play in establishing early, accurate diagnosis, as well as providing a basis for monitoring, is fully discussed throughout. More emphasis is given to the implications of medical disorders in pregnancy, and the means of managing them successfully. There is a new chapter on the rapidly expanding and exciting field of fetal medicine. As in previous editions, the illustrations represent one of the most outstanding teaching features of the book. Carefully selected, each illustration provides an important teaching message, which is expanded in full descriptive legends. For the student, the illustrations alone represent a unique resource which will provide simple reinforcement of the principles learned from the text.
