Abstract

To one who has taught gynecology to nurses, this book seems to offer great assistance to the nurse. The first part concerns anatomy, physiology and methods of examination. This is followed by an extensive treatise on gynecologic treatment. Perhaps a little too much space is allotted to surgical treatment, for it is not necessary for the nurse to be so intimately aquainted with surgical methods. The chapter on gynecologic diseases is excellent, and gives the nurse a compact idea of the various conditions encountered. The second part of the book covers gynecologic nursing. It is comprehensive, covering every detail, preoperative, operative and postoperative. The book is excellently illustrated, making it easy for the nurse to follow the text.
