Description: This pocket reference or "peripheral brain" is a 3x5 inch spiral bound book that contains over 400 commonly encountered conditions in inpatient and outpatient settings, listed in alphabetical order.
Purpose: This manual provides easily accessible information, focusing on diagnosis and treatment, at the point of care.
Audience: This book is most appropriate for medical students and house officers on the medical service.
Features: Each condition, listed alphabetically, is defined, then covered under diagnosis, etiology, treatment, and clinical pearls.
Assessment: This light and compact resource will be helpful to many house officers and students. One concern is how well the thin pages will hold up with repeated use.
