Mosby's Guide to Physical Examinationby Henry M Seidel
Synopses & Reviews
This comprehensive textbook of physical examination, history taking, and health assessment is distinguished by its unique author team of two physicians and two nurses. Their blend of expertise results in an unusually broad, multidisciplinary perspective...a unique emphasis on differential diagnosis...and an uncommonly compassionate, patient-centered approach. What's more, their expertise in both adult health and pediatrics fosters an especially thorough emphasis on lifespan considerations. The book also features one of the most extensive art programs found in any physical examination text-particularly with regard to abnormalities. This 5th Edition features increased coverage of evidence-based practice and complementary and alternative therapies-as well as enhanced illustrations and a state-of-the-art ancillary collection.
Book News Annotation:
<:st>Brandon-Hill listed the fourth edition as an initial purchase. This text for students in their first health professional experiences, emphasizes that patients are primary and must be well served. The initial six chapters discuss the development of a trusting and mutually reinforcing relationship, which requires mastery of history- taking and physical examination, and understanding of cultural backgrounds and differences; and important elements of assessment (mental status, growth and development, and nutrition). New to this edition: 80 more illustrations (bringing the total up to 1,350), and numerous tables and information boxes.
