Overview

Now completely revised and updated — it maintains the easy-to-use format that is the hallmark of earlier editions. Comprehensive yet to-the-point — and with emphasis throughout on clinical thinking — the book provides the best foundation for learning to perform physical examination and history taking. Students learn to ask the right questions — and to understand the answers. A logical two-column format places examination procedures and proper techniques on the left, and common abnormalities and possible interpretations on the right. Highly visual — now featuring hundreds of new images — illustrations are strategically placed adjacent to relevant information, enhancing understanding. Tables of abnormalities appear at the end of each chapter, enabling the reader to compare and contrast abnormal findings.
