Clinical Anatomy: Applied Anatomy for Students and Junior Doctors [NOOK Book]

Overview

Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first-year medical students. At this stage in their careers, wards and bedsides are far from their minds and the thought that anatomical origins or interrelationships might be clinically relevant is remote. Thus, once the ward is reached, anatomical facts are largely forgotten. However, be it for the palpatation of the abdomen, the interpretation of a CT scan, the location of an organ to biopsy, or listening to lung sounds, an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context ...

Overview

Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first-year medical students. At this stage in their careers, wards and bedsides are far from their minds and the thought that anatomical origins or interrelationships might be clinically relevant is remote. Thus, once the ward is reached, anatomical facts are largely forgotten. However, be it for the palpatation of the abdomen, the interpretation of a CT scan, the location of an organ to biopsy, or listening to lung sounds, an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context is essential. This is what Professor Ellis's highly successful revision text provides.

The structure of the book is regional, and begins with surface markings, followed by detailed discussion of each organ or constituent part. These anatomical descriptions are immediately followed by Clinical Features, the component which makes the book unique.

Appropriate for: Medical Students.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for first-year medical students that bridges the gap between anatomy learned in the pre-clinical years and that which is encountered in wards and operating rooms. Ellis, an esteemed British clinical anatomist and emeritus professor of surgery, presents the material by anatomical region. A discussion of the surface markings in each region is followed by details of each organ or constituent part. These anatomical descriptions are immediately followed by Clinical Features<-->the component which makes the book unique. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
"It is remarkable that this volume, after 47 years of continuous publication, remains fresh, relevant and valuable to the latest generation of trainees...Important structures are clearly represented in line drawings, augmented by careful use of colour." Clinical Anatomy 20:582

“I think a lot of students struggle with anatomy but this book makes it very understandable. The illustrations are clear and colourful and not over-complicated. The clinical features make the book more interesting and relevant. I like the compact size of this book- good for carrying around and reading in a spare moment. As far as anatomy books go, this is one of the best I have ever read.” Medical Student, Keele

“Ellis speaks through the text with the voice of a distinguished surgeon. The information is kept clinically relevant and the book is clearly illustrated throughout. As a student, this is all you need to know.” Medical Student, St. Georges

“This book is essential for clinical medicine, helps in both surgery and in clinics. [It] makes sense of anatomy taught at pre-clinical level and helps the reader apply their knowledge. Easy to read and clear diagrams to help your learning.” Medical Student, Leicester
