i USED to be a great fan, 9 Oct 2011
i used to be the greatest fan of this book. i have to admit now that as i begun to use it more and more frequently i found some inexpliquable, discrete but hugely important misses.
HOW CAN ANYBODY EXPLAIN THE LACK OF ``AORTIC STENOSIS`` IN THE D/D OF AN EPISODE OF SYNCOPE???
HOW CAN ANYBODY EXPLAIN THE LACK OF OMEPRAZOLE 80MG I.V. IN THE SETTING OF ACUTE GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING???
WHY ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL MANAGEMENT IS INCOMPLETE??? CIWA SCORE, FURTHER MGMT OF DELTREMS
MANAGEMENT OF PHARYNGITE esp Streptococcal???
and other things i dont remember at the moment...
every new edition is better than the previous one, but there are still things missing.
Atrial Fibrillation for example is better written as years pass by and new editions come, but still, lets say:
rythm control ok, fine, but why dont you give as an idea on the doses used??
how should i know how much diltiazem or atenolol to use in the first place for an AF at 180???give as an idea...
or hypertensive crisis...or....or....i am not going to elaborate.so, i have greatly tried to hide from myself the truth cos i used to be lets say the greatest fan.now i have to always carry 3-4 books instead of one so as to compensate.
