Product description

Obstetrics & Gynaecology has established itself as a key recommendation for faculty and a firm favourite for health sciences students. The opening sections of this new edition incorporate the relevant basic science, history and examination, investigations and diagnosis, as well as common diseases, abnormalities, and complications in gynaecology and obstetrics respectively. These are supported by two unique sections on gynaecology and obstetrics management, which are tailored to help students revise for exams, especially OSCEs. A brand new chapter covering ethics in obstetrics and gynaecology makes this fully-updated fourth edition the most comprehensive introduction available. Obstetrics & Gynaecology now includes a companion website at www.impeyobgyn.com , featuring self-assessment MCQs and EMQs, chapter summary slides, and all the figures from the book as PowerPoint slides.
