Product Description

Review

"I would recommend this book as an intelligent option for busy foundation–year doctors and medical students faced with time–critical revision. The text could also be a ready reference for conditions likely to be encountered in casualty and clinics...Considerately designed with the medical student in mind, it is compact, portable and unlikely to strain a muscle in transport." The Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine


"This book is a must for all orthopaedic nurses and health care professionals...The illustrations are excellent and easy to follow and include diagrams, x–rays and tables. The health care professional new to the specialty of orthopaedics will find it invaluable and the more experienced will find the breadth of coverage useful when they need to refresh their knowledge in areas they have not had recent practice in." Journal of Orthopaedic Nursing


"This bright and colourful book is ideal for medical students learning the essentials of rheumatology, orthopaedics and trauma in a short time. The book is literally ′at a glance′ and can also be used as a set of revision notes. The diagrams and pictures enhance the text and make the book a delight to read." Medical Student, Oxford University

“Provide[s] students [with] all of the fundamentals for diagnosis...This is one of the best quick reference booklets for medical students that I have seen.”
Doody’s Review Service

Format: Paperback
This bright and colourful book is ideal for medical students learning the essentials of rheumatology, orthopaedics and trauma over a short time-frame. The book is literally `At a Glance' and can also be used a set of revision notes. The book is useful clinically, covering examination of the leg, arm, spine and rheumatological assessment. The diagrams and pictures enhance the text and make the book a pleasure to read.

Format: Paperback
An excellent overview of what is often a very confusing area and really good for revision. You'd probably want another textbook as well though during any clinical attachments in this area as information is quite basic.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Remi Guillochon on 23 Mar 2008
Format: Paperback
A fun read dispensing with plenty of helpful points and comments to assuage any anxieties you have about the musculo-skeletal system.

Look out for:

1. Splendid diagrams that interplay with accompanying text. After reading text on opposite page, they serve as a reminder of what you have read, and serve well as an aide-memoire. Especially good when the pictures create their own narrative with presentations, diagnosis, treatment etc.

2. Concise and succinct explanations. Not too over-loaded with information, yet include a lot of material.

3. Helpful 'Tips' summary boxes at end of each chapter.

4. Practice case-based questions at end revise material covered in book.

Format: Paperback
This book book manages to be both concise and comprehensive. The clear text, which covers all of the most important orthopaedic and rheumatological conditions that a medical student is likely to be asked about, is supported by full-colour illustrations.

Strongly recommended.
