Book Description

8 Aug 2008 1405160950 978-1405160957 3rd Edition
Obstetrics and Gynaecology has established itself as a key textbook and a classic favourite for medical students. The opening sections of this new edition incorporate the relevant basic science, history and examination, investigations and diagnosis, as well as common diseases, abnormalities, and complications in gynaecology and obstetrics respectively. These are supported by two unique separate sections on gynaecology and obstetrics management, which are tailored to help students revise for exams, especially OSCEs. The overall emphasis on patient diagnosis and management means that both medical students and postgraduate candidates have found this book invaluable.

This third edition has been completely updated, with more helpful features, including:


  • Two new appendices on Common Drugs and Normal Maternal Ranges in Pregnancy
  • Extra ‘at a Glance’ boxes for a quick chapter summary
  • Key point summary boxes and new and updated references provided throughout
  • New and improved Further Reading sections in every chapter

The third edition is full colour, highly illustrated, and includes new figures and new artwork in many chapters,
and sees Tim Child, a colleague of Lawrence Impey’s from the John Radcliffe, join the author team.

All in all, Obstetrics and Gynaecology is ideal as a core textbook and to revise from prior to the exams.

More About the Author

Mr Impey qualified in medicine MBBS in 1998, MRCOG in 1992, and was awarded the FRCOG in 2007. His medical training has been in Oxford, London and in Dublin, where he was Assistant Master at the National Maternity Hospital. He is on the both the specialist register of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and as a subspecialist in fetal and maternal medicine. He was educated at Oxford University, and went to clinical medical school at University College in London.

He is the author of the leading medical student textbook in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, now co-authored with Tim Child in its fourth edition (2012). This book won the Society of Authors/ Royal Society of Medicine Asher prize in 1999. He is also co-senior editor of the Oxford Handbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

He has published many scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals, mostly in the areas of labour, breech presentation and the origins of childhood handicap. He has also contributed chapters to a number of books including the Oxford Textbook of Medicine and written National Guidelines on the management of breech babies.

In 2003, with the help of his colleagues he was responsible for funding and building Oxford's Feto-Maternal Medicine Unit on Level 6 of the Women's Centre of the John Radcliffe Hospital. This houses new Fetal Medicine Unit, for which he is the lead, and also the Silver Star Unit, for complex maternal problems.

Mr Impey is a fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, and a member of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the British Maternal Fetal Medicine Society and the Royal Society of Medicine.

Mr Impey is director of the prestigious subspecialty training programme in fetal and maternal medicine in Oxford. This is responsible for the highly specialised training of obstetricians in high risk pregnancy and ultrasound. He also lectures regularly to students of Oxford University where he is a honorary senior lecturer, and also nationally and internationally.

Within the NHS, Mr Impey specialises in complex pregnancy, particularly for women with multiple pregnancies, those at risk of preterm delivery, and those where the baby is sick or potentially sick. He also runs a weekly consultant antenatal clinic, has regular Delivery ward sessions and runs the breech and external cephalic version (ECV) service. In private practice Mr Impey is particularly interested in ensuring that labour is normal but safe.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to learn O&G in 10 days... I did. 12 Jan 2006
Format:Paperback
Surely not I hear you all cry! Yes and I assure you, you can do the same with this handy text.
This has to go down as one of the best texts I bought whilst at medschool, ranking up there with the Oxford handbook and Surgical talk (not Lissauer though - miserable book). The 2 sections are clearly defined and well laid-out, the information is concise (thank god) and the 'at a glance' boxes summarise the content in precisely that way. Also, it is handy enough for one of the more dedicated members of your firm to carry around with them without you needing to.
Undoubtedly others will prefer a more comprehensive text that will 'guarantee' a prize/A/first etc. If however, you are like me i.e. have a fairly limited interest in the subjects(!) then Impey will more than adequately cope with your needs and assist the clinical work which is of vital importance in these specialities.
In summary, a great textbook that treats both aspects of Obs n Gynae with equal merit whist putting emphasis on the 'need to know to pass' rather than the 'need to know to get an A'...
Just don't leave it to the last minute... it wasn't pretty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it for the undergraduate exams. 17 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"If you're doing Obs and Gynae then buy Impey!" It's as simple as that. I could just end the review there but that would be rather dry wouldn't it? So I shall continue.
This book by Impey is a very concise, readable book designed to give you the essentials of the subject during a firm that is long and quite draining. It gives you all the material to pass the exam at the end of the firm, which happens to be a finals exam! Given that time is limited this is a good book to use to help you pass and pass well!
It is divided into two sections: Gynaecology and Obstetrics. With 15 and 20 chapters respectively the book goes into enough depth without getting bogged down in the detail. There are references to very recent research papers for those who want more detail on certain topics. Clearly written chapters are accompanied by boxes of key points and 'At a glance' summaries at the end of each chapter make for quick revision. This is a must for all of those doing O&G finals and the author is to be congratulated on producing such a readable text.
The final section has brief details on management of specific cases in both specialties, for example pre-eclampsia and ovarian carcinoma. This section is ideal for quick revision before the exam. I found it especially useful at 2am on the day of my exam! In conclusion, this is probably the only textbook you will ever need for Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Trust me, I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for obs/gynae undergrad rotation 1 Jun 2004
Format:Paperback
I didn't discover Impey until I'd finished my rotation in Obs/Gynae, but I wish I'd known about it from the start! It gives an excellently-written overview of obstetrics and gynaecology, providing enough detail so you understand it well, but not too much 'irrelevant' detail that confuses.
The end of each chapter has brilliant "At A Glance" boxes for all the topics covered in that chapter. Overall, it's definitely the best Obs/Gynae textbook I've found (others tried: Lecture Notes, Fundamentals (Llewelyn), Essentials, Undergrad Obs/Gynae).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Best Book around for Obs & Gynae! 26 Sep 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"If you're doing Obs and Gynae then Impey is the way forward!" With so many books on the market, this was the most approachable and holistic of them all.
This book by Impey is a very concise, readable book designed to give you the essentials of the subject during a firm that is long and quite draining. It gives you all the material to pass the exam at the end of the firm, which happens to be a finals exam! Given that time is limited this is a good book to use to help you pass and pass well!
It is divided into two sections: Gynaecology and Obstetrics. With 15 and 20 chapters respectively the book goes into enough depth without getting bogged down in the detail. There are references to very recent research papers for those who want more detail on certain topics. This is further accompanied by "At a glance" summaries for major topics as well as Management sections for both obsetetric and gynaecological cases.
It is perfect for a good grounding in O&G as well as a useful revision guide for finals.
This is most probably the only textbook you will need for Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which is a great advantage over the commonly used Ten Teachers series (separate books for Obstetrics and Gynaecology). Worked for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential book for Undergraduate O&G 31 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
This books works concisely and logicaly through what you need to know for O&G. The text is easy to understand and is not jam packed with information, which makes it easy to understand. The tables provided make it easy to revise from and an excellent short management section in the rear is definitely worth learning before an exam.
The drawbacks are that the book is not as detailed as it could be for some advanced knowledge, hence another book is recommended if you are keen to not just pass. Having said that, the book is still the cornerstone of a medical student's reading for O&G.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As a final year medical student, I found this particular book absolutely excellent. The text covers the essentials in just enough detail and the "At a Glance" boxes visually reinforce everthing you've learned. An invaluable purchase for any student of OBGYN!!
