OBSTETRICS Normal and Problem Pregnancies 7th edition
The OBSTETRICS Normal and Problem Pregnancies 7th edition is being delivered to you prematurely! Do we have your attention? Good. We don’t mean the book is incomplete. In fact, this version may have more new information than any we’ve done before, which is why it is being published just four years since the sixth edition, rather than on our usual 5-year cycle. The author wants to be sure our readers have access to the best, most advanced resource to guide them as they learn and practice obstetrics today.
Students will find four new chapters in the OBSTETRICS Normal and Problem Pregnancies 7th edition: “Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Delivery,” “Placenta Accreta,” “Obesity in Pregnancy,” and “Improving Global Maternal Health: Challenges and Opportunities.” The first three topics have become more important in our day-to-day obstetric
practice, and the chapter on global maternal health is a “must read” for anyone providing obstetric care abroad. In addition to the two appendices on normal values in pregnancy and the anatomy of the pelvis, we have added a third—a glossary of the most frequently used vital abbreviations—for easy reference.
Readers will find that the author has expanded the use of bolded statements and critical points to enhance mastery of each chapter. Our chapter on obstetric ultrasound now contains more than 100 images (in print and online), providing an essential resource for normal and abnormal fetal anatomy. OBSTETRICS Normal and Problem Pregnancies 7th edition offers online features include an exciting new support: videos to accompany several chapters to enhance learning in areas such as cesarean delivery and operative vaginal delivery
