Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Intended for use during a medical clerkship, this text and reference treats medicine as both a science and as a humanitarian pursuit. Taking a patient-based approach to medical practice, the book emphasizes the conceptual framework rather than rote lists of causes and cures. Chapters are grouped by disease type. Contributors include doctors from around the United States. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Crystal-clear and easy-to-read, this popular text focuses on the essential pathophysiology, diagnoses, and management of the most common clinical situations. The Fifth Edition updates all diagnostic and therapeutic information and increases the number of illustrations and x-rays. Detailed coverage of when to hospitalize a patient can be found in the management sections of each chapter. The STD and HIV/AIDS chapters have been heavily modified for this edition, and there is also expanded coverage of genetics, geriatrics, and transplantation. A must have for medical students and residents.
