Oxford Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology pdf

Oxford Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology – As a student and fresh junior doctor in obstetrics and gynaecology I was an avid user of the previous edition of this book; I was therefore intrigued to see the new ‘improved’ version. This updated, third edition covers the same essential material in bullet point format and has useful additional sections; for example, ‘FAQs’ for the counselling of women following miscarriage and references to RCOG guidelines and public websites.

The advice contained within the book is both logically set out and practical and will continue to be of significant benefit to junior doctors working in the accident and emergency department and during their first jobs within the specialty. It is also an excellent revision guide for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The treatment options listed within the book are not always in line with current practice but national guidelines are referenced where they are available. There is an excellent summary of contraception and useful sections covering topics such as consent and ethical issues. The list of commonly used drugs and information regarding their use in pregnancy, on the inside cover of the handbook, is an extremely helpful quick reference guide which any practitioner, however experienced, will find useful. This book should definitely be recommended to those new to the specialty.

Preface – Oxford Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Welcome to the third edition of this Oxford Handbook. In obstetrics and gynaecology, as in all fi elds of medicine, the available evidence, technology and guidelines can move forward at a rapid pace and often prove diffi cult to keep up with. As the majority of junior doctors are well aware, the gaps in our knowledge often become apparent at the most inopportune moments; this book seeks to fi ll those gaps rapidly and effectively. It uses the well-known Oxford Handbook format to facilitate easy navigation around concise, clinically relevant, evidence-based information. It can be quickly dipped into for specifi c answers between seeing patients in clinic or on delivery suite, as well as providing a solid, general grounding for those just beginning in the specialty. It also has suffi cient depth and detail to provide a good starting point in the preparation for postgraduate exams. To ensure the most up-to-date information is always available, emphasis has been placed on providing relevant web addresses, especially for guidelines and useful organizations. Text boxes have also been employed to help highlight some of the more important pieces of information. Although this handbook is most likely to be used by trainees within the specialty, we envisage it will be useful for all those involved in women’s health, including GPs, midwives, and medical students. We hope you fi nd it a helpful resource and that it proves to be a valuable companion and guide in your everyday practice of obstetrics and gynaecology.

Acknowledgements

We would like to thank all our second edition authors, especially the trainees at the John Radcliffe and St George’s hospitals. Additionally, we are very grateful to those who have gone the extra mile to ensure that our third edition chapters are up to date, especially Charlotte Bennett, Lucy MacKillop, and Jo Morrison who reviewed the highly specialized areas of neonatology, maternal medicine, and oncology to ensure that they contained the best available evidence. We would also like to thank the doctors of all grades who anonymously reviewed some of the text, providing valuable feedback and further fi ne-tuning the fi nished manuscript. To conform to the Oxford Handbook style and to avoid overlap and repetition, some contributions have been considerably edited and we thank all our authors for their understanding. We are most grateful to Prof. Basky Thilaganathan for providing many of the ultrasound images and Ms Penny Trotter for the colposcopy pictures. Last, but defi nitely not least, we would like to thank our partners and families who continue to remain so patient and supportive throughout this project, especially Berni O’Connor ‘for doing all the real work on the home front’ and David Reynard ‘for putting up with all this
