Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Elizabeth H. Guonjian, MD, MDiv (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This book, the first of the specialty series published by McGraw-Hill, provides information necessary for emergency gynecologic and obstetric care of women and children. The book includes 36 essays detailing pathologic conditions of women written by 59 faculty and professionals in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology, emergency medicine, and primary care.
Purpose: The purpose is to aid in the care of women as they present to the practitioner with both common complaints and emergent conditions. This worthwhile book contributes to a field where obstetrics/gynecology literature abounds, but where such literature is not intended specifically for those offering emergent care. The work meets the objective of a complete, yet manageable book that can be used as a quick reference or as a more detailed text.
Audience: The book is targeted specifically to emergency and acute care providers in the emergency department, urgent care clinic, or a rural setting where obstetric and gynecologic consultation may not be readily available. The editors are widely known and well-respected in the field of emergency medicine and their contributions are consistent in quality and breadth.
Features: The editors divide the book into three areas: problems of pregnancy, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, and problems of the reproductive age and older women. The comprehensive work covers topics that range from the basics of anatomy and physical exam to the more complicated: ultrasound evaluation of the pregnant patient, safety of radiologic imaging for a fetus, and recommended pharmacologic therapies in gravid patients. In addition, gynecologic infections, breast disorders, and domestic violence are among the some of the non-pregnancy-related conditions thoroughly addressed. The illustrations, tables, and color plates are uniformly excellent and complement the text meaningfully. The information conveyed is well-researched and presented with the latest statistical analyses. For example, the frequency of heterotopic pregnancies is cited at 1:3000 for the general population and 1:34 for in vitro or ovulation inducing populations.
Assessment: This is a very useful contribution to the field of emergency medicine, as few works currently exist that both are specific for obstetric and gynecologic topics and are targeted to emergency and acute care practitioners. As part of the Tintinalli series that defines the discipline of emergency medicine, this work is an appreciated and outstanding contribution that will be used by many in the field.

Meet the Author

McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide

The editors are eager to proceed with this new venture and will receive enthusiastic support from the emergency medicine community. Judy Tintinalli will continue as editor-in-chief and will devote a significant amount of time to setting up the editorial system, helping us define features, and securing sources for multimedia content. In addition our plan is to develop a separate online editorial advisory board with some representation from residents and younger Internet savvy MD’s. ACEP’s role in the project has not yet been established but will be defined after presentation of this proposal to Editorial Board. The editors for this project will be the same as the book although we will consider the addition of others in our forthcoming planning meeting.
