In Focus Obstetrics is aimed at all medical and health science students who require an introductory, low cost and highly illustrated guide to this specialty. The material is presented in double page spreads. The left-hand page has a synoptic and highly structured text (normally under the following headings: incidence; clinical features; differential diagnosis; management; prognosis). The right-hand page has a selection of four to six clinical photographs.
Obstetrics In Focus is a convenient pocket size and therefore ideal for quick preparation before ward rounds. Each volume also includes self-assessment material, which is extremely helpful for preparation for examinations.
Because of shorter time spent by women in hospital during pregnancy and after delivery, students are less likely to be able to see the full range of problems associated with pregnancy during their (ever shorter) short clinical attachments - the books in this series help supply that deficit.
