Overview

Featuring a uniquely visual two-page-spread design that is great for rapid reference or review, In a Page Medicine, Second Edition provides a quick overview of the diseases and disorders most commonly seen during an internal or family medicine rotation and in the clinic. Each problem is presented on a two-page spread in boxes with consistent headings including introduction; etiology, pathophysiology and risk factors; patient presentation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic evaluation; treatment and management; and prognosis and complications. Bulleted key points appear under each heading. This edition features expanded differential diagnosis sections.

This pocket-sized book is ideal for interns, medical students in clerkships, or USMLE review. It will also appeal to physician assistant and nurse practitioner students.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book, one in a series that summarizes concepts as a memory jogger, outlines the common diagnoses commonly encountered in medical practice. The previous edition was published in 2007.
Purpose: The editor relates his personal experience of struggling to see "the forest for the trees" and has initiated the series to simplify "the abundance of medical knowledge into a manageable nucleus."
Audience: The stated audience includes those preparing for rounds, studying for boards, or desiring a resource for independent study. The contributors are mostly clinicians associated with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Features: The format for each chapter includes an introduction; etiology, epidemiology and risk factors; patient presentations; differential diagnosis; diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and management; and prognosis and possible complications. This is a nice approach, but forces some difficult decisions on what to include in the two-page format for each diagnosis. Subsequently, there is no room for figures, and a text-only description of some diagnoses, such as AV block and bradycardia, assumes a working knowledge of the subject prior to consulting this book. There are no references, consistent with the format of the book.
Assessment: Nothing makes this book stand out as a must-have and there are some significant deficiencies for anyone preparing for board examinations.

    Nice Pocket Resource for Students

    First let me tell you that I am a PA student who is currently preparing for the PANCE. Okay, so we all (MD & PA students alike) love the little red book for our IM and ER rotations since it's ridiculously useful, fit in our coat pocket and it durable due to its touch binder cover. However, I picked this book up, by chance, while I was at B&N strumming through PANCE review books. What I like about this book is that it is fairly small and also fits in my coat pocket. It's set up so that when you want to look at say, hmmm, Nephritic Syndrome, the information is provided on only 2 pages (so there's no page turning for each topic) and it is broken up into boxes that are easy on the eye to read, easy to navigate and very informative. So, each topic will have a box for the introduction; etiology, epidemiology & risk factors; patient presentation; differential diagnosis; diagnostic evaluation; treatment & management; and prognosis & complications. This is not an overwhelming read and it's easy to quickly look something up before your attending shows up to pimp you. It'll help with those of you who like to look like rockstars when you're rounding with your IM attending or with your family practice or ED rotation attendings! :)
    That said, I think that this is great for the 3rd year, and many 4th year, Med students or the PA student.
    p.s. There's on for Peds too. I recommend it also for your Peds & ER rotations.

    As a Periodontist, I found this book to be great to reference before performing I.V. Sedations or surgical procedures on patients. It helps to really review patients medical histories as well as other conditions that may interfere with our procedures. This helps to minimize complications. I can do all this with one book, without having to reference 5 different books and read many pages. Thank you Dr. Kahan.
