Editorial Reviews

Judson C. Jones
This is a concise, portable, and easy to carry guide to physical examination and history taking. The previous edition was published in 1995. This book is to be used as a reference for review and recall of a comprehensive list of key elements in physical examination and history taking. The editors give readers a concise and convenient guide for review, as well as a reference for special techniques or maneuvers in the art and history of physical assessment. Due to the fundamental nature of the text, it can be used by essentially any medical provider. It is intended, however, as a guide for recall and review and not as a primary instructional guide for the novice. With this edition, a change in editor is made. Dr. Bickley is an associate professor of medicine and neuropsychiatry. Techniques and maneuvers necessary for proper history taking and physical examination are provided. These are presented in a well-organized format with a discussion of each body system in succession. There are sections on the adult and pediatric patient. A chapter entitled ""Aids to Interpretation"" is extremely well organized and useful in use of tables, charts, photographs, and illustrations to address specific topics in physical assessment. This is a remarkably concise text, given the breadth of the topic and the portable size of the book. It is a worthy reference for the student in need of review to reinforce proper technique for common procedures, as well as for the seasoned practitioner in need of reference for a specific maneuver or technique. This third edition contains material on health promotion, aging, and sports medicine not found in previous editions.

    Good overview

    I liked this book. I was disappointed in its lack of covering a full musculoskeletal exam. For that, there is no better book than Pocket Guide to Musculoskeletal Diagnosis. But this was a good book
