Product Description

Review

"A must have [that] will surely come in handy, even if it saves just one patients life in the future.... Overall grade/score: 5/5." ( Leicester Scrubs , January 2010) "This is a valuable and well–edited collection of potentially serious speciality–specific symptoms. It is highly informative and should alert the reader to the ′alarm bells′ that may present in their clinical practice. The book should prove a valuable asset to the library of anyone involved in the practice of medicine including medical students, GPs and hospital doctors." ( Annals Royal College of Surgeons of England , 2006)

From the Back Cover

What′s your worst nightmare as a doctor? Missing a life–threatening condition must be among the biggest fears for health professionals. But sometimes the clue to the diagnosis lies in just a single symptom. So what if a patient comes to your clinic with an ear which hurts when they swallow, and you don’t think of a tumour ? Or a numb chin, and you don’t suspect metastases? Or an itch, and you miss a leukaemia? Alarm Bells in Medicine brings you up to speed on recognising the symptoms of serious illnesses. Internationally renowned authors list the most crucial presenting symptoms in their own specialties that should ring the alarm bells for you. They provide clear information on diagnosis and action. Organised under the relevant specialties, the information is quick and easy to find. Since patients disclose alarm symptoms in all clinical settings, this book is as relevant for consultants as it is for GPs, as useful for junior doctors as it is for medical students.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a practising GP, I found this book refreshingly different from other medical books on the market. It covers a broad range of topics, and covers information not found on other textbooks. I found the bullet points good and each chapter is quite easy to read, you can flick through a few points in between seeing patients in clinic! I wish I had this book for medical finals - this book will be really valuable for medical student last minute cramming

This is a very useful book. I my opinion it should be required reading for all medical students and junior doctors, and should also be of interest to experienced GPs and consultants.

Each specialty has a single-page list of around 10 readily memorable red-flag symptoms or signs which should alert the doctor to the possibility of serious pathology. Concise explanatory notes then expand on the significance of each item, and give clear instructions on how to investigate or refer as appropriate.

Each section is written by two or more consultants or experienced registrars with relevant specialist expertise, and the whole book is well-edited, with a consistently readable style throughout.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for the medical library I manage at the request of an Elderly Care Consultant/Clinical Tutor I know very well in the hospital. The book was stolen within a couple of days of it's being on the shelves and my clinical colleague didn't even get a chance to flick though it! The basis for my five star review of the book is on its being one of the fastest to fly off our shelves..... without permission. MUST be good!
