About the Book

The thirteenth edition of Mudaliar and Menon’s Clinical Obstetrics has been thoroughly revised in keeping with the recent advances in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology as well as the new Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME) curriculum introduced by the National Medical Council (NMC).

While topics such as prenatal diagnosis, abnormal labour, hypertensive disorders and MTP have been thoroughly updated in keeping with the most recent international guidelines, this edition also features new topics such as Zika and COVID infections. Epilepsy and asthma, shoulder dystocia and bronchial asthma have been covered in newly added chapters. A new chapter has also been added on medical ethics and medicolegal issues, as these are important aspects of medicine that should be taught to students of the subject so that they may learn to ethically practice medicine.

Each chapter opens with a mention of the CMBE competencies covered therein as well as a list of learning objectives that outline the knowledge and skills a student would acquire from that chapter. Evidence-based information is provided in accordance with the latest guidelines recommended by national and international bodies. A number of clinical photographs and USG images have been added to aid in the visualisation of concepts.

Examination is the most difficult challenge faced by a medical student. Keeping this in mind, essential points are presented in boxes, tables and algorithms for better comprehension and ease of memorisation. In most chapters, discussions on clinical scenarios have been added to help students to understand the clinical aspects and problem-based approach to various ailments. To encourage students to self-learn, the essay questions, short answer questions and MCQs at the end of each chapter have been extensively updated.

This book is a handy resource for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students as well as teachers.
