Clinical Case Discussions In Obstetrics and Gynaecology


Part 2 

The current series of videos are the compilation of those cases which are commonly encountered in obstetrics and gynaecology practice. These are very frequently given to MBBS students in practical exams for work up and presentation during various stages of their course. Approach to these cases will be helpful for all the medical practitioners who are involved in the obstetrics and gynaecology practice as well, because the knowledge that has been imparted for the routine work up of the patient in this course is essential for all.

The motto of this video presentation is to:


In pursuit of improvisation in medical teaching, this is my effort to help you all sail through your exams unhindered. With the help of these cases, I am striving to enhance the learning in all the domains, i.e., cognitive, psychomotor, and affective. Long cases along with short cases in the practical exam account for more than 50 % marks and conquering in the exam is dependent on these cases. Therefore, it is essential to be thorough about the history taking, examination, work up and the frequently asked questions as well. 

Always remember, the practical viva can take an unexpected turn, and hence you should know how to guide your viva. Each case has been prudently selected, and most of them include live patient examinations or images to enable you to experience real bedside teaching. I have sought to focus on a single disease in each case so that the entire topic can be covered in a small duration as well as in an effective manner. The videos have been complemented with causes, differential diagnosis , investigations and salient points during the viva so that if you are not able to keep up with the pace at any point of time , you can just take a screenshot or jot down notes for quick revision during the exam time. Remember, it is important to see and learn all the cases as your viva can take unforeseen turns during the presentation. If your case is on PIH, your viva can go on anaemia as well, so be prepared with all types of cases

Nothing can replace books and experience. The basic knowledge is always gained by reading books and attending to a greater number of patients. But nowadays, due to privacy issues, medicolegal implications and the coronavirus pandemic, clinical examination of the patient has become minimal for most of the budding medical graduates. It is for this reason this case series have been made to fill the gap and update you with all the latest relevant practical knowledge. It is imperative to listen to and prepare all the cases given in these courses. If you do so, I guarantee that each one of you will pass the practical exam with flying colours.

The training on the clinical cases has been divided into 2 courses. Each course consists of 12 case presentations.
