This new edition of an acclaimed text reviews the evidence for best practice in obstetrics to present the reader with the right information, with appropriate use of proven interventions and avoidance of ineffectual or harmful ones. The information is presented in the right format by summarizing evidence succinctly and clearly in tables and algorithms. The aim is to inform the clinician, to reduce errors, and “to make it easy to do it right.”
The volume can be purchased separately or together with the companion volume on Maternal-Fetal Evidence Based Guidelines (set ISBN 9780367567033).
The Series in Maternal-Fetal Medicine is published in conjunction with the Journal of Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine.
From reviews of previous editions:
Obstetric Evidence Based Guidelines is a text that will prove useful to residents and fellows as well as to practicing obstetric clinicians. Furthermore, it can be used as a source for the development of hospital policies for the management of these obstetric problems … The major advantage of this text is that it provides guidelines for the management of commonly encountered obstetric issues in a single book.
This is a welcome addition to a physician’s library. Its use of current studies and easy-to-read format allow for easy fact-checking and referencing.
