Hands on clinically oriented and procedural as well as proactive and situational...a must read and great read (and not very difficult read) for those who like to be informed, proactive, proactively informed and well prepared for any birthing or gynecological situation. However, keep your pathology book handy...because pathology is your basis for possible permutations in the best world and worst possible worlds of permutation and Lange is application and clinical. I would definitely accompany this text with Medical Embryology by TW Sadler which gives you all the essential vocabulary words with pictorials and sets the foundation for the embryology section of this book. I would also purchase What to Expect When You ARE Expecting...this one as a source of reference and hobby reading...we still need to know what mothers and teenage nongestational mothers read out there and be as informed as mothers can and should be. The use of technology is over-rated...for example ultrasound, genetics/kariotyping is also under valued and well teratogens as a cause for abortions well also lacking. However, we do have genetics as a separate course and embryology too...and pathology and physiology.
LexiComp has a phone app that updates regularly. Unfortunately, I can't get reception at most clinics. This book is well written. Medications are listed alphabetically with brand names, uses, unlabeled uses, drug class, interactions, dosage calculations, dose adjustments for children/renal/hepatic/elderly, dosage forms available. It even has pronounciations (soo doe e FEN rin)for those of us who tend to trip over words.
I bought this book as I am planning to be a family practitioner and wanted more detail in O&G. This has been a very useful book and I would recommend it.
This book is what I needed for school. I was a required textbook for my course. It is a nice reference book for my library as well.
A very practical and complete book for medical students and for residents in OBG.I recommend!
good arrival, great reference
