Your time is short. The faster you can accurately diagnose each patient, the more people you can help every day. This resource enables you to reach a positive diagnosis quickly and confidently! For any set of symptoms, straightforward algorithms guide you from a complete list of differential diagnoses through the appropriate clinical and laboratory tests to a definitive identification. Since this book is organized by body system and by presenting sign—rather than by specific diagnosis—it's easy to look up the guidance you need for each patient.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD (Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: The authors of this text present an algorithm-style approach to multiple common problems in adult medicine. This third edition is an update of clinical material not found in the 1994 version.
Purpose: The authors seek to present differential diagnosis in an algorithm format, taking into account the issues of rational decision-making and cost effectiveness. As such, they allow the physician to see the "big picture" that is often missed in complex cases of patient care.
Audience: This text is designed for all providers who have a solid understanding of clinical pathophysiology. It will also be an excellent learning tool for students. Both authors are academic internists with a great deal of experience in adult medicine.
Features: The authors focus on common medical problems encountered in adult ambulatory care. Each clinical diagnosis is described in a point-by-point fashion, with the accompanying algorithm clearly mapped out and illustrated. Each problem is cross-referenced to a corresponding chapter in Harrison and Cecil's medical text, a unique touch that ties this book into existing databases.
Assessment: Medicine is often a step-by-step process of problem solving. This unique text lends itself well to the physician's algorithm-style of thinking. More importantly, it will maintain the busy practitioner's focus on the larger clinical picture in cases where it is easy to get lost in the details.
