More About This Textbook

Overview

An illustrated guide to essential surgical procedures for treating the major complications of pregnancy and childbirth and for managing traumatic injuries, including fractures and burns. Gynecological procedures commonly required in small hospitals are also covered. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on standard surgical protocols that represent the safest line of action in hospital settings where equipment may be primitive, drugs limited, and specialist services sparse.
The first six chapters describe essential procedures for treating the major complications of pregnancy and childbirth and for preventing maternal deaths. Life-threatening emergencies, such as obstructed labor and ruptured ectopic pregnancy, are covered together with more general obstetric procedures. Gynecological operations form the focus of four chapters, which describe general gynecological procedures, techniques for female sterilization and IUD insertion, and procedures for obtaining biopsy or cytological samples from the endometrium, cervix, and vulva. The remaining 14 chapters describe essential techniques in orthopedics and traumatology, providing details on both basic orthopedic techniques and the management of specific fractures, dislocations, burns, and other injuries.

Meet the Author

John Cook studied physics at the University of Queensland, Australia. After graduating, he majored in solar physics in his post-grad honours year. His interest in climate science began when he was given a speech by prominent skeptic U.S. senator, James Inhofe. Researching the various skeptic arguments presented by Senator Inhofe revealed many fundamental scientific flaws. This led Cook to begin cataloguing the full range of skeptic arguments and documenting what the peer-review science said about each topic. This work formed the basis of the skepticalscience.com website which aims to communicate the peer-reviewed science to a broader audience.
