Product Description

Review

"An extraordinary work of art that in my opinion deserves a prize. Structures are shown on anatomical figures by means of numbers, or outlines in the case of bones, or coloured green or brown for other organs. The author says that one of the objects is to illustrate palpable anatomy that 'can be seen, felt, moved or listened to' and should be 'supplemented by self examination.'"

I've been searching for a book to do this for ages. Photographs of real people with line drawings overlaid to show, for example, where a particular muscle lies in relation to the surface of the leg; where precisely (at a vertebral level) the lungs lie within the thorax. The regions , systems and functions of the body are clearly worked through so that it becomes possible for those of us who are not planning on being surgeons (and for all I know, those that are!) to understand what you might be palpating.

This is an excellent value book containing quality colour photographs and line drawing overlays showing the underlying structures. I particularly like the fact that many areas are shown as 'straight' photographs (no overlay lines/labels) so that one can see the anatomy without distractions.

I work in a critical care area in a hospital and i found this book useful to visualise all the areas of the body which are discussed on a day to day basis. I would recommend this book to anyone who is failing to visualise the anatomy whilst they are studying.

Format: Paperback
The 4th edition of this book details the visible and palpable anatomy that forms the basis of clinical examinations. Although aimed more towards the medical rather than nursing student it shouldn't be dismissed by the latter in light of potential OSCE's and other clinical examinations that are expected by some Universities.

Probably the best aspect of this book is that the anatomy is detailed over a photograph of the body part - thus understanding can be confirmed through additional visual understanding. For a detailed, concise and accurate account of anatomy that is linked to palpable examination this book does what it says.

I bought this book for my daughter-in-law who is a qualified nurse but is studying for an advanced qualification. She assured me this 4th, latest edition was essential for her course. Study text books are very expensive so I was pleased to be able to save a few pounds buying through Amazon and to help her with her studies.
