Clinical Problems in General Medicine and Surgery, 2e 2nd Edition

517vxyb1q6l-_sx328_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0443073236]

Clinical Problems provides a comprehensive selection of important medical and surgical scenarios. The reader is taken through 62 case histories step by step and is asked to interpret a broad range of medical data. Most of the clinical problems are accompanied by illustrations, which include cardiographs, radiographs, clinical and pathological photographs. In addition to detailed questions and answers, a commentary is provided that highlights the important issues of each case, as well as a guide to further topics of study.
The aim of any undergraduate curriculum is to produce graduates who have the knowledge and skills required to enable them to become competent members of the medical fraternity. Understandably, upon qualification these attributes will be raw and untried, but we expect them to be able to show that they possess what it is required of doctors in their first few years after graduation. What is ‘required’ in a clinical situation is often not obvious to the student and hence the reason for this book.
The book represents a departure from the traditional formula of systems and diseases, and an exhaustive review of each subject. Rather the authors have selected what they believe to be a number of important and, for the most part, relatively common medical and surgical scenarios and approached each from the perspective of the practicing clinician presented with a clinical problem. Whilst the book has been written primarily for undergraduates it describes clinical problems as they will be managed by recently qualified doctors.
It is not the purpose of this book to challenge or compete with standard reference material, rather it represents an important adjunct to the learning process of clinical reasoning, rather than provide the knowledge that must accompany it, although an considerable amount of factual material is to be found within its pages. Problem solving is a vital component of medical education, and while it can be taught well at the bedside and in small group tutorials, there are few books that help with this style of learning.

  • Addresses important medical and surgical topics from a problem-oriented approach.
  • Presents relevant clinical illustrations for each case, such as ECGs, radiographs, and clinical and pathologi-cal photographs.
  • Emphasizes empathy with the patient’s situation as well as effective patient counseling.
  • Provides commentaries from experienced clinicians, highlighting the most important issues of each case and offering suggestions on possible further areas of study.
  • Identifies situations where emergency management must take precedence over pathophysiological diagnosis.
  • Features extensive updates to reflect the increasing role of minimally invasive diagnostics.
  • Offers a new, full-color page design, with all-new photographs throughout.
  • Provides a stronger emphasis on the worldwide web as a source of further information.

41mc3ehs7ml-_sx331_bo1204203200_

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0470519673]

This book summarizes and explains the main approaches to age estimation in the living, defining when a parameter may be of use and raising awareness of its limitations.

Each key approach to age evaluation has been allotted a single chapter, written by an international leader in the particular field. The book also includes summary chapters that relay readily accessible data for use by the practitioner, and includes important “ageing milestones.”

This book is indispensable where problems of immigration and legal standing, juvenile vs. adult criminal status, and responsibilities of law enforcement to protect vulnerable persons are key issues on a daily basis.  Medical practitioners, forensic practitioners such as pathology, odontology, anthropology and nursing, lawyers, and police would find this book incredibly useful.
