Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christy R. Bleckman, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This book takes a different approach to medical education, focusing on clinical cases and then correlating the pathophysiology with the disease. The first edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to facilitate medical education with common case scenarios in obstetrics and gynecology. It requires readers to process diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for each clinical case. It is a relevant book for a practical approach to prepare medical students for inpatient rotations. Detailed pathophysiology is presented at the end of clinical correlates, as well as patient counseling. The book does an excellent job at describing basic, but realistic, clinical cases as well as complete differential diagnoses and treatment plans.
Audience: According to the author, the anticipated audience is medical undergraduates. The author does a fine job of portraying clinical correlates in an easy to read format. The book is well organized and defines common terminology in a manner ideal for all medical students. The topics are factual and pertinent.
Features: The book is divided into the two major areas of obstetrics and gynecology. The first section discusses early pregnancy complications, labor, and the postpartum period. The gynecology section addresses common complaints and even the subspecialties, oncology and urogynecology. For every clinical case a differential diagnosis, pertinent laboratory data, physical exam, and treatment options are employed. The key concepts portion of the book reflects the core terminology of the subject matter. Tables and pictures are appropriately spaced. The book portrays relevant clinical situations and addresses multiple patient scenarios and then describes the pathophysiology associated with the disease. It covers all pertinent diagnoses in the differential, but at times does not provide enough detail about the incorrect answers and why they are wrong.
Assessment: This is an excellent approach to medical education for students embarking clinical rotations. It challenges the reader to apply medical knowledge to all aspects of patient care. It provides questions as well as key concepts. The second edition is justified because medicine is an ever changing field; with more research, current clinical recommendations change.
