Differential Diagnosis in Obstetrics and Gynaecology An A-Z PDF Free Download
This book is based on French’s Index of Differential Diagnosis which was first published in 1912. The aim of that book was ‘to help in the differential diagnosis of any condition in medicine, surgery or any specialty that may be seen in general or hospital practice’. I was asked to edit the gynaecological sections for the most recent edition, which was published in 2005. On completion, I felt there was room for a similar type of book for obstetrics and gynaecology. Subsequently I enlisted the help of current and former colleagues as well as friends from around the world to produce this book, which aims to cover most of the symptoms that may be commonly seen in a woman presenting to the gynaecologist or to the obstetrician during her pregnancy. I have tried to make the book as accessible as possible to all doctors regardless of specialty and grade, as well as midwives, nurses, medical students and patients alike. In some sections management of the symptoms has been addressed but the main emphasis of this book is differential diagnosis. References and websites have been included where appropriate and a glossary of common terms and terminology used in obstetrics and gynaecology has been provided at the end.
One of the major challenges in obstetrics and gynaecology is the need for a broad knowledge of medicine and surgery as well as the conditions specific to reproduction. The comprehensive nature of this book achieves this goal. Differential Diagnosis in Obstetrics and Gynaecology covers everything you ever wanted to know about what can occur in pregnant and non-pregnant women. The editor has included experts in many specialties to contribute to this book which is particularly valuable as it takes the reader outside the realm of an obstetrician and gynaecologist. From minor symptoms to major symptoms the differential diagnoses are explored and offered in a way that is easy to read and leads the reader on to straightforward and practical management. This book is suitable for all grades of healthcare professional, not only as a reference book but also for revising for any qualifying or licensing examination. Inevitably medical words are used but lay people would also find this book very useful. The layout of the book is engaging as the text is interspersed with excellent illustrations and useful boxes highlighting important points. For the reader who would like to delve even further into each area there are up-to-date references. Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a rewarding speciality but one that is forever confronting you with what you do not know. This book will undoubtedly help you to solve the problems and should be on the bookshelf of everyone who deals with women!
