This book is awful. I have read 1 and a half chapters this evening and with all respect to the authors and editors it looks like it was quickly put together.
It is full of mistakes, contradictions and half explanations for simple things. Take for instance the definition of central cyanosis on page 50...' <5g/dl Hb' ??? This is worrying as it is close enough to the real definition to be believed if you are reading casually or have just heard the definition long ago but forgotten it. There are other cases where the < or > are the wrong way around. There were also some contradictions from one page to the next in the respiratory signs section. I am sending it back immediately as I do not want to pick up any bad info.
Its a shame as the way it is set out and the general OSCE stuff is really good, with lots of tips and ideas about common cases. Totally let down by (what looks like) poor proof reading.
Each chapter covers a different system. There are the salient points to ask in a history. Then there is a detailed examination scheme including: relevant anatomy; all the clinical manifestations to look for and their causes with useful diagrams where appropriate.
There is also other info relevant to the system e.g. recording and interpreting ECGs in the cardiovascular examination chapter.
Loads of the chapters include marking sheets which examiners use so you know what they are looking for.
Lots of hints and tips to help you pass whatever clnical year you're in!
