The first chapters of this book are devoted to the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the external and internal genitalia. Then follow chapters which are of more special interest to nurses. These include sections on examination of patients, preparation of patients for operation, anesthesia, postoperative care and operating room equipment, personnel and technic. At the end of each chapter is a list of review questions. The illustrations are clear and instructive, particularly those depicting operating room and office equipment. The author is to be complimented for showing face masks that cover not only the mouth but also the nose and for calling attention to this. The book should prove helpful not only to pupil nurses receiving instruction in gynecology but more especially to supervisors of operating rooms and to graduate nurses who are preparing to be hospital or operating room supervisors.
