Book Description

10 Aug 2006 0198566522 978-0198566526 1
Busy clinicians need easily accessible information falling into two broad categories: diagnosis and management of patients with particular groups of symptoms; and comprehensive information on defined clinical problems. With this in mind, the Oxford Handbook of Gastroenterology and Hepatology has been structured in a unique way. The first section covers approaches to clinical problems detailing 29 of the most common problems in GI medicine, including infectious disease and gastrointestinal problems in developing countries. A key section of the handbook is a unique A-Z compendium of the specialty which includes information on 100s of topics in gastroenterology, from Abetalipoproteinaemia to Zieve's syndrome. Colour coded links enable readers to find information in related chapters quickly. Further sections include emergencies, and commonly used drugs used in gastroenterology and hepatology, with emphasis on practice tips and common complications. The result of this new approach is a handbook which is practical and informative, while being a pleasure to use. It is an essential guide to the management of common conditions and will be invaluable to all those involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease.

Product Description


This small but very pleasant book covers in a very individual and intelligent manner almost all daily gastrointestinal problems encountered in the clinic and on the wards...The authors are to be congratulated for having produced this must-have handbook which will be appreciated equally by junior doctors in training and by those immersed in busy hospital medical departments. (Digestive and Liver Disease)

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly laid out - Almost useless 23 Feb 2010
I bought this at the start of a gastro SHO job and never used it this is why. It's set out like a big glossary (they call it a unique A-Z compendium of the specialty), which means you can't start a job and think "I'll learn all i can about cirrhosis and it's complications" because part of it's under cirrhosis, part of it's under ascites or portal hypertension or something else. It means you will never be able to look something up in this book. You get the feeling that they've said "the information is in here somewhere, just try to find it".
Buy the oxford handbook of acute medicine instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacks any depth 17 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not enough information or any form of indepth knowledge in this book, a real waste of money, might be useful for medical students only but not for a doctor at all. Hard to use in A to Z form.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless book 8 Jan 2013
Bought this book from the book store on Goodge street in London, Absolutely Useless book, where bits an pieces of Information is scattered all over the book. Certainly not up to date and neither does it help you on wards and neither in the gastro clinics. The authors need to be desperately changed and fresh perspective needs to brought in. Do not squander your money on this Item.
