The Labour Ward Handbook, second edition, is a succinct manual that provides detailed clinical practice guidelines for the care of women in labour. Dealing more with the practice than the theory of labour ward management, this book is designed to be a ready guide for use in the delivery suite by the busy clinician.

The format has been specifically designed to make retrieval of information quick and simple. Relevant pages can be reproduced and filed in the patient's case-notes thus serving not only as an aide memoire and checklist, but also as a supplementary record of the care provided.

The Labour Ward Handbook is essential reading for practising obstetricians of all grades, midwives, labour ward managers, and all other medical professionals who are interested in the conduct of labour and risk management in the delivery suite.

Key Features

  • Checklists and bullet points for quick and straightforward guidence
  • 'Further reading' at the end of each section
  • Compliant with RCOG and NICE guidelines
  • Builds on a very popular first edition

If you work on the labour ward, this is the book to have with you at all times.
