This edition maintains the high standards established by the first edition. The material is arranged in a logical manner, so that the nurse is familiarized with the anatomy and the physiology of the reproductive organs before she embarks on their abnormalities. Mechanical disturbances, including childbirth injuries and relaxations, infections, neoplasms and some pregnancy complications, are described in separate sections. Nursing procedures peculiar to gynecology are considered in detail in a separate chapter. An appendix contains descriptions of specialized procedures.
The style is interesting and the text profusely illustrated with pen and ink sketches. The dual authorship of an outstanding gynecologist and an equally well trained nurse educator has resulted in the proper emphasis on nursing education. This textbook can be recommended highly for use in nursing curricula.
