Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It does an excellent job of detailing complicated medical issues in an approach that is both readable and understandable. This is a recommended book for those interested in complex obstetrical care, especially at the training level." - Doody's
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gilad A. Gross, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This book on high-risk obstetrics is not as comprehensive as larger, more traditional textbooks, but it holds more information than a pocket handbook.
Purpose: The purpose is to give a concise review of obstetric complications as well as medical illnesses that affect obstetrical care, while also providing tools for the management of these complications. This book meets its goal of providing accurate, timely information in adequate detail to help direct the management of a wide range of obstetric complications. It addresses both common and uncommon issues, while providing guidance on management decisions.
Audience: Providers of obstetric care, both generalists and subspecialists, are the intended audience. Although this book is appropriate for residents in training, the primary focus is on educating general obstetricians on advances and updates in the field of perinatology. The book does an excellent job of providing an overview of high-risk obstetrics. However, in providing a concise review, the book lacks some of the in-depth literature review that is required to fully cover these topics. Many of the authors are leaders in their respective fields of perinatology. Some chapters are authored by residents coupled with more seasoned authors.
Features: The first half of the book addresses complications that are specific to obstetrical care, and the second half details medical illnesses that may affect pregnancy and discusses the care necessary to optimize pregnancy outcomes under these circumstances. Although the book is directed at providers of obstetric care, there are several points at which it gives more background than is necessary for such a group of educated practitioners, making some of the chapters more basic than necessary. The downside of this is a lost opportunity to provide more depth, by spending too much time on background information that most providers should already know. The book seems to pride itself on not being overly thorough with respect to supportive literature and voluminous references. However, at times concepts (some controversial) are discussed that required a reference. As a perinatologist, I asked myself on several occasions why the authors made certain recommendations and where they got their supportive information. Many other chapters are appropriately referenced.
Assessment: Overall, this book meets its goal of educating obstetric providers about the advances and nuances of complex obstetrical care. It does an excellent job of detailing complicated medical issues in an approach that is both readable and understandable. My only complaint is the occasional oversimplification of these difficult issues and the periodic lack of supportive literature. Although problematic, this is a feature of only a few chapters. This is a recommended book for those interested in complex obstetrical care, especially at the training level.
