Childbirth & Obstetric Techniques

by Sophia NE Webster, Farook Al-Azzawi

This book on “Childbirth and Obstetric Techniques” has illustrated all the necessary processes and techniques in a clear and concise, step-by-step fashion. It takes the reader right back to first principles to ensure a deep understanding of both simple and complex clinical scenarios. Photographs and diagrams are used to supplement carefully written text to ensure maximum understanding and minimize confusion. This book is very helpful for all clinicians, training in obstetrics worldwide as well as undergraduate medical students who may choose to concentrate on the normal labor mechanisms and management earlier in their studies and consider the more complex topics towards graduation. Clinicians responsible for training may also find this book useful as a supplement to their clinical direction. In this chapter, twelve detailed chapters cover the full scope of labor ward practice from the mechanism of childbirth and the management of normal labor to cesarean section and operative vaginal delivery. This fully revised and updated edition also includes a detailed chapter on delivery complications, new information regarding the technique of vacuum-assisted delivery, an extended cardiotocography section based on the latest FIGO classification and the current analgesic options for labor and delivery.
