Frees up medics' memory for problem processing 30 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is one of many pocket sized texts aimed at junior doctors, but it is distinguished by its realisation of Descarte's "Ghost in the Machine". The Ghost is the collected medical knowledge of scientists and clinicians, and it is "growing and changing shape" every single day.
The Oxford Handbook helps you keep up with the Ghost in three ways: stimulation of memory, interactivity and insertions. It is a large resource of over 700 pages, including tables, diagrams and summaries of thousands of medical problems, tests and treatments, so useful brain power can be freed up from regurgitation of facts for more problem solving. It has hundreds of blank pages facing the text for notes on memorable patients, lectures, and texts. And the content is regularly reviewed and rewritten by a large team of practising doctors who are now publishing updates on a website, so you can print off new pages from the web and stick 'em in.
Round our way it's known as! the "Cheese and Onion" because it's wrapped in Yellow and Green plastic like a bag of flavoured potato crisps. It's tasty, uses British terminology and it fills a gap, too. Good for enough for anyone who needs a flavour of medicine that doesn't go stale.
Great addition to your collection 28 Dec. 2012

Every doctor should have a copy of this great pocket sized book....I lost my previous edition while on hospital rounds as a student so buying a new one at original price was not desired. Finding this on Amazon was a gem. The priced for a use copy was great. The condition was excellent and it arrived on time. Would definitely recommend purchasing from the seller again.
