Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Randall S. Kuhlmann, MD, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This book provides the practitioner of obstetrics a resource used in the diagnosis and management of many problems that face the physician in labor and delivery. A unique feature of this book is the section dedicated to "social obstetrics." This section is by far the most thorough I have read, when compared with other similar texts.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with factual information aiding decision making when dealing with the problematic patient on the labor and delivery unit. This book is needed. The objectives have been met.
Audience: The audience includes the resident, midwife, and practitioner of obstetrics. The author and the contributing authors are credible authorities in their fields.
Features: The illustrations are of good quality and are pertinent to the subject matter. The references are current. The appearance of this book is acceptable.
Assessment: The book is an excellent reference for those managing pregnant women with problems during labor and delivery. The section on "Social Obstetrics" is a welcome addition to our field. I recommend that this text be available to the student and practitioner of obstetrics.

The scope is not simply labor and delivery, but integrated management of patient care in labor and delivery units as they are utilized today. Thirty-four contributed chapters give an overview, followed by discussion of normal labor and delivery management (induction, multiple gestations, malpresentations); labor and delivery as an intensive care unit (tocolysis, preterm labor, asthma, sickle cell disease); controversies (e.g. electronic fetal monitoring, delivery of the very-low-birth-weight infant); and social obstetrics (e.g. medicolegal issues, conflicts between maternal and fetal well-being, perinatal loss).
