Book Description

4 May 2000 0443061726 978-0443061721 10th
This textbook describes the practical skills the clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. Macleodsshows how to carry out a competent and professional clinical examination and is intended to complement the information available in standard medical and surgical textbooks. The bookcovers the major divisions of medicine in each chapter e.g. how to take a history, elicit and evaluate problems, the method of examining a patient and how to interpret the significance of your findings.
Throughout the book emphasis is placed on the methodof obtaining an accurate history and of performing a physical examination appropriate to the clinical problem. The main chapters conform to a basic pattern. Each starts by describing the relevant symptoms and by discussing their significance. The normalfindings in physical examination are detailed and related to important aspects of applied anatomy and physiology. The examination sequence is then described in detail. Thereafter, the relevance of abnormal signs is discussed. The advantages and limitations of the investigations are described and the chapters conclude by giving examples of the methods in practice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong books sent 3 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not the book that I ordered. Isbn number incorrect. I ordered two of these books on different days for friends on a course with me as the book was recommended reading. On both orders I was not sent the correct book. Even though I received a refund on one of the books I would be cautious about using this company again

This is certainly one of the best clinical examination texts out there on the market today. Clearly labelled diagrams and excellent use of colours makes it an enjoyable read.
