In the admirably clear way observed in his previous literary work, Dr. Davis takes up systematically the details of obstetric and gynecologic nursing, never invading the domain of the physician, but giving minute directions for the guidance of the nurse in normal and abnormal pregnancies, obstetric emergencies and the principal gynecologic operations. In an appendix a dietary with full directions for the preparation of foods is given, and also the methods of preparing surgical supplies and the methods and precautions of the Philadelphia Hospital. The book is satisfactorily illustrated and will be of value to all obstetric and gynecologic nurses, both in hospital and private practice.
