Dewhurst s Textbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Book Review:

This time honoured classic has been re-built completely: after six editions the editor has decided that a radical revision is necessary. The new edition has been developed as a result of intensive consultation with trainees in OB/GYN as to what they want, what they need and how they learn. The book is organised into two halves covering obstetrics and gynaecology. Within each, the chapters are structured into sections containing pedagogic features such as boxes, highlights and key points for the first time. It contains everything the clinician needs to practice the art of obstetrics and gynaecology and sufficient information to help sub-specialists develop their specific interests. This text is recommended reading for the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology membership examination. This seventh edition contains 21 new chapters: Anatomy of the Pelvis and Reproductive Tract Placenta and Fetal Membranes Antenatal Care Anaesthesia and Analgesia Recurrent Miscarriage Ectopic Pregnancy Trophoblastic Disease Genetics and Prenatal Diagnosis Drugs and Pregnancy Obstetric Emergencies Prolonged Pregnancy Renal Disease Termination of Pregnancy Imaging in Gynaecology PMS Assisted Reproduction Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy Sexual Dysfunction Psychological Aspects of Pregnancy Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault - now on MRCOG curriculum Ethical Dilemmas This seventh edition has been significantly updated with a wide range of internationally renowned contributors who are all experts in their field, bringing this book to the cutting edge of knowledge in obstetrics and gynaecology. "It was my favourite textbook when I was working for my examinations and I am still using it. I can recommend this edition to current trainees wholeheartedly. It is certainly worth buying."

Maternal overweight and obesity Book Review:

Objectives: The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate the impact of maternal body mass index (BMI) on obstetric and neonatal outcomes in adolescents as well as on treatment with oxytocin infusion during labor regarding cumulative oxytocin dose and plasma levels of oxytocin. Material and Methods: Studies I and II were nationwide Swedish register studies including 31,386 primiparous adolescents subdivided in BMI groups and obesity classes according to early pregnancy BMI. Additionally, 178,844 low-risk normal weight adult women, called “the standard women” were included for comparison with the adolescents in the different BMI groups. Study III was an observational study conducted at seven maternity wards in the southeast region of Sweden, including 1,097 nulliparous women with spontaneous start of labor receiving oxytocin infusion during labor. The study group was subdivided according to BMI on admission to the labor ward. Cumulative oxytocin dose was registered from the start of the oxytocin infusion until the neonate was born. Study IV was an observational pilot study conducted at the maternity ward in Linköping, including 40 women in term labor receiving oxytocin infusion during the first stage of labor. The women were subdivided into obese and non-obese categories according to BMI on admission to the labor ward. Serial peripheral venous blood samples were taken during oxytocin infusion in the first stage of labor. The plasma oxytocin concentrations were analyzed with ultra performance liquid chromatography - Orbitrap tandem mass spectrometry at the Department of Chemistry Biomedical Centre, Uppsala University. Results: Compared with their normal weight counterparts and compared with the standard women, overweight and obese adolescents had increased risks for adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes such as preeclampsia, stillbirth, post-term pregnancy, neonates large for gestational age and neonates with low Apgar score. In labor, compared with the normal weight adolescents, the overweight and obese adolescents had a decreased chance for a normal vaginal delivery (VD), increased risk for Cesarean section (CS) and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). However, compared with the standard women, the overweight adolescents had increased chance for a normal VD, and decreased risk for instrumental VD, CS, obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASI) and PPH in VD. The obese adolescents had an increased risk for CS but a decreased risk for instrumental VD and OASI and they had the same chance for a normal VD and no increased risk for PPH in VD. The mean cumulative oxytocin dose increased in the BMI groups (normal weight 2278 [2748] mU, overweight 3108 [3839] mU and obese 4082 [4895] mU (p<0.0001)) and the mean maximum oxytocin infusion rate during the first stage of labor was higher in the obese group compared with the overweight group of women (15.5 [9.5] mU/min vs. 13.6 [9.1] mU/min (p<0.05)). When adjusting for birth weight, epidural analgesia, and cervical dilation at the start of oxytocin infusion, the statistically significant differences were no longer seen. The obese women had increased median levels of oxytocin in plasma at an oxytocin infusion rate of 3.3 mU/min compared with the non-obese women (19.55 ng/mL [IQR 10.61; 29.06 ng/mL] vs. 6.97 ng/mL [IQR 5.55; 13.70 ng/mL], p=0.016). Conclusions: There are several adverse obstetric and neonatal outcomes associated with overweight and obesity in adolescents. It is important for clinicians to be aware of these outcomes in maternal health care. Nevertheless, overweight adolescents seemed to have better labor outcomes compared with low-risk adults, which is useful knowledge when risk-assessments are made in the labor ward. In spontaneous onset of labor, the cumulative oxytocin dose and maximum oxytocin infusion rate were higher in women with obesity compared with lower BMI groups. One explanatory factor seems to be that women with obesity received the oxytocin infusion at an earlier cervical dilatation stage. Furthermore, obese women seemed to have higher levels of oxytocin in plasma at the beginning of the oxytocin infusion. The oxytocin-oxytocin receptor complex must be further investigated to gain more knowledge on how to optimize the treatment of obese women with oxytocin infusion during labor.

Weight Gain During Pregnancy Book Review:

As women of childbearing age have become heavier, the trade-off between maternal and child health created by variation in gestational weight gain has become more difficult to reconcile. Weight Gain During Pregnancy responds to the need for a reexamination of the 1990 Institute of Medicine guidelines for weight gain during pregnancy. It builds on the conceptual framework that underscored the 1990 weight gain guidelines and addresses the need to update them through a comprehensive review of the literature and independent analyses of existing databases. The book explores relationships between weight gain during pregnancy and a variety of factors (e.g., the mother's weight and height before pregnancy) and places this in the context of the health of the infant and the mother, presenting specific, updated target ranges for weight gain during pregnancy and guidelines for proper measurement. New features of this book include a specific range of recommended gain for obese women. Weight Gain During Pregnancy is intended to assist practitioners who care for women of childbearing age, policy makers, educators, researchers, and the pregnant women themselves to understand the role of gestational weight gain and to provide them with the tools needed to promote optimal pregnancy outcomes.

Obesity and Fertility Book Review:

This book outlines the current understanding of how obesity affects female reproductive function across the lifespan. Topics include physiology of the menstrual cycle and early pregnancy, best practices in the delivery of contraceptive and prenatal care and healthcare policy that weighs the evidence in appropriate balance with principles that respect women’s rights. Special attention is devoted to the idea that obesity’s adverse effects are likely trans-generational; that is, children born to obese mothers are at increased risk for obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life. Patients and their physicians need to be aware of the additional risks obesity confers in pregnancy and outline a plan of care that includes counseling preconceptionally, antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum in order to decrease morbidity. Obesity and Fertility provides advice for reproductive medicine physicians and gynecologists to help guide obese patients toward improved reproductive health and outcomes.

Anesthetic Management of the Obese Surgical Patient Book Review:

The global obesity epidemic is growing in severity, affecting people of every age and costing healthcare providers millions of dollars every year. Every day, anesthesiologists are presented with obese and morbidly obese patients undergoing every type of surgical procedure; the management of these patients differs significantly from that of normal weight patients undergoing the same procedure. Anesthetic Management of the Obese Surgical Patient discusses these specific management issues within each surgical specialty area. Initial chapters describe pre-operative assessment and pharmacology; these are followed by detailed chapters on the anesthetic management of a wide variety of surgical procedures, from joint replacement to open heart surgery. Essential reading for anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists worldwide, Anesthetic Management of the Obese Surgical Patient and its companion work by the same authors, Morbid Obesity: Peri-operative Management, enable both trainees and practised professionals to manage this complex patient group effectively.

Obesity Book Review:

This book brings a comprehensive treatise about obesity, examining the measures that can be taken to stop and even reduce obesity if these right measures are taken in time. Recent studies show that obesity is on the increase at an alarming rate, especially in the industrialized and affluent countries. A number of reasons have been put forward for this increase, including life style choices, over-eating, over-use of commercially processed food, addiction for fast food, high caloric diet specially containing high levels of sugar and fat, lack of exercise and sedentary life style. Also genetic make up has been associated with obesity. Obesity can lead to a variety of lethal diseases, notably coronary heart disease, cancer and diabetes. These diseases account for the highest number of human death amongst all other causes. There are also a number of other side effects associated with obesity including increased stress, loss of intelligentsia, pancreatitis, premature birth and osteoarthritis. In recent years media have been playing important roles in highlighting the lethality and damage caused by obesity, nevertheless no significant effects can be seen in the population and obesity remains on the increase, especially amongst children. The editors believe that it is important that more education, campaign and research are used to stop this increasing disease.

Influence of Pregnancy Weight on Maternal and Child Health Book Review:

Influence of Pregnancy Weight on Maternal and Child Health: Workshop Report summarizes a one and a half day workshop convened in May 2006 that reviewed U.S. trends in maternal weight (prior to, during, and after pregnancy) among different populations of women; examined the emerging research findings related to the complex relationship of the biological, behavioral, psychological, and social interactions that affect maternal and pregnancy weight on maternal and child health outcomes; and discussed interventions that use this complex relationship to promote appropriate weight during pregnancy and postpartum. Given the unprecedented environment in the United States in which two-thirds of the adult population meets the criteria for being overweight or obese, the implications for women in the reproductive age period are unique in the history of the country. The concerns for maternal and infant health are real. The questions and answers tackled by committee members and workshop participants were not easy. Nevertheless, having an opportunity to explore what is known, examine the gaps in knowledge, and explore what to do now and in the future build a pathway for further inquiry and action. This report summarizes the workshop proceedings and highlights key themes that deserve further attention. The participants in this workshop describe what is known about recent trends in maternal weight gain and the impact of maternal weight during pregnancy on the health of mothers and their children. The workshop provided a valuable opportunity to assess trends that have occurred since the publication of an earlier study by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which included guidelines for recommended weight gain during pregnancy.
