    Handbook of Vacuum Delivery in Obstetric Practice

    Fully Revised 3nd Edition 2009 - in colour!
    Handbook of Vacuum Delivery in Obstetric Practice
    by Aldo Vacca
    ISBN 978 1 920818 03 6.

    The Handbook of Vacuum Delivery in Obstetric Practice is intended to be used as a resource for clinicians who perform or who are in training to perform standard and rotational vacuum delivery. In addition, all healthcare providers who assist women during and following vacuum birth, and neonatal paediatricians and nurses responsible for the care of their infants will find much information in the handbook helpful for their practices.

    Essential knowledge, procedural steps and technical skills for successful and safe vacuum delivery are outlined in the book in a clear and systematic fashion supported by over two hundred illustrations and photographs. The available evidence for best practice is critically examined and recommendations based on the data are discussed.

    A self-directed learning program based on the Handbook that includes a referenced review of the contents of the book as well as general knowledge and and case study multiple choice questions for self-assessment purposes is available from the Vacca Research website Clinician's Resources page.

    Operators who follow the guidelines presented in the handbook should, with practice, experience an improvement in successful vacuum delivery and a reduction in the risk of adverse outcome for the mother and infant.
