Overview

The most trusted textbook in medicine -- featuring the acclaimed Harrison's DVD with 57 additional chapters and exclusive video and tutorials

Now presented in TWO VOLUMES

As reviwed by JAMA:

"With the 18th edition, Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine retains its standing as a definitive clinical reference and remains an outstanding foundation for any physician or physician-in-training. In many regards, Harrison’s remains synonymous not just with internal medicine but with medicine in general. The editors of the 18th edition have skillfully balanced tradition with the desire and need for innovation. The result is a book that remains as fundamental to current medical practice as the first edition was in 1949."

--JAMA

Extensively revised and expanded by the world’s leading physicians, Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, 18e continues to set the standard as the pinnacle of current medical knowledge and practice, offering the definitive review of disease mechanisms and management.

CURRENT

All chapters have been completely updated to reflect the latest knowledge and evidence, and important new chapters have been added, including: "Systems Biology in Health and

Disease," "The Human Microbiome," "The Biology of Aging," and "Neuropsychiatric Illnesses in War Veterans."

CONNECTED

Harrison's covers more global aspects of medicine than any other textbook, and features such chapters as "Global Issues in Medicine," by Jim Yong Kim, Paul Farmer, and Joseph Rhatigan, and new to the 18th edition, "Primary Care in Low and Middle Income Countries."

COMPREHENSIVE

No other resource delivers coverage of disease mechanisms and management like Harrison's, including world-renowned chapters on HIV/AIDS, STEMI and non-STEMI myocardial infarction, cancer biology, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes.

The Harrison’s Multi-Media DVD— Better Than Ever!

The Harrison’s DVD has been expanded to include an extensive video demonstration of

the neurological physical examination, and video tutorials on how to perform essential clinical procedures, including:

  • Thoracentesis
  • Abdominal Paracentesis
  • Endotracheal Intubation
  • Central Venous Catheter Placement

57 additional chapters and more than 2,000 images make the companion DVD an essential part of every physician's education, practice, and lifelong learning.The DVD also features PowerPoint presentations from fifty chapters to facilitate classroom lectures, and a free trial subscription to AccessMedicine.com (including Harrison's Online).

Harrison’s 18e is proud to present a tribute to longtime editor, Eugene Braunwald, MD

for his outstanding and continuing contributions to medical knowledge and practice.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: The eighteenth edition of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine comes with new chapters, including "Systems Biology in Health and Disease," "The Human Microbiome," "The Biology of Aging," and "Neuropsychiatric Illnesses in War Veterans," and an updated DVD.
Purpose: It is intended to provide the foundation that is essential to understanding the various aspects of internal medicine. It continues to focus on the pathophysiological basis of disease while discussing clinical relevance, approach, and management. It additionally seeks to update and extensively modify the previous edition to discuss the areas of medicine that have evolved since that book was published 2008.
Audience: Written for a wide variety of audiences, the book primarily targets anyone involved in the field of medicine, whether in clinical or research realms, and students.
Features: Covering nearly every possible topic in the field of medicine, the book begins with a phenomenal overview of clinical medicine, discussing important topics such as global medicine, decision-making in clinical practice, the concepts of disease screening and prevention, as well as the importance of medical disorders in specific groups (e.g. women, surgical patients, end of life). The extensive chapters that follow focus on a symptom-based presentation of disease and then illness organized by organ system. Numerous tables, graphs, and figures add further clarity to the text. The accompanying DVD includes extensive video and image collections of pathology, histology, procedures, additional lectures, and radiology. The chapters on psychiatric disease could be expanded to focus more on the relevance that psychiatric illness has to medical disease.
Assessment: Written by experts in the field, this book is updated with the latest advances in pathophysiology and treatment. It is organized in a way that makes reading from beginning to end a logical journey, yet each chapter can stand alone as a quick reference on a particular topic. The DVD will serve as an invaluable resource for any clinician, student, or researcher. Future editions could work toward strengthening the sections on psychiatric disorders and mental health given their prevalence and significant impact on individuals with comorbid disease.

    "Opening ebook"

    This says it all. It's what you would see if you attempted to open Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine with the Nook app on an iPhone or iPad. The book opens, eventually, long after you've lost interest and moved on. By comparison, books open rapidly with the Kindle app, but Harrison's is not on Kindle. If you want Harrison's, try Inkling on the iPad.

    Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine is really an exhaustive treatise on the ever-changing subject of medicine. It deals with the subject systematically. various aspects viz. etiology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, prognosis n prophylaxis dealt with in detail. verily it should adorn the shelf of competent physicians. a rare treasure a physician can lay his hands on
