Easily manage the care, assessments and complications of your pregnant patients, in addition to the newly classified individual fetal patients. The updated and revised eighth edition of the popular Manual Of Obstetrics skillfully addresses the care, assessment, and complications, as well as other emerging issues handled daily by obstetric providers.
