Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Sally Ling, M.D.;FACP(University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine)
Description: This is a new edition of a practical and up-to-date reference on internal medicine that is user friendly for both inpatient and outpatient settings.
Purpose: The purpose of the book has been to provide concise, yet thorough discussions on the disease and disorders that are either routinely encountered by primary care clinicians, or are important enough in the differential diagnosis that clinicians need to have some knowledge about the disease process. The authors have achieved their goal.
Audience: The book is intended for broad readership including internists, family physicians, house officers, medical students, and midlevel clinicians such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
Features: Coverage is comprehensive. General topics ranging from preoperative and perioperative patient management, care at the end of life, to complementary and alternative medicine, are covered. The organ systems and associated conditions are also thoroughly covered. The layout and type are pleasing. The graphs and algorithms are particularly good. The index is well done.
Assessment: As before, this book will continue to serve as the ideal, concise, up-to-date reference for the busy clinician.
