Editorial Reviews

Daniel Sisbarro
The authors have created a handbook that is intended to aid housestaff and medical students in assessing commonly encountered problems in a hospital setting as well as provide a reference containing assorted helpful information. The book is divided into seven chapters, but the bulk of the material is presented in outline form in the first chapter. The authors present topics in this chapter by symptom as opposed to by disease process. Each subheading is a specific complaint, e.g., hematuria, that is presented initially within the context of a brief case. Then the authors offer a list of questions important to answer immediately regarding the complaint in order to rapidly assess severity as well as direct a differential diagnosis. This is followed by a reasonable differential diagnosis, assorted findings to look for on exam and during laboratory evaluation, and a brief description of potential courses of action depending on the diagnosis. The remaining chapters are an assortment of lists and descriptions, ranging from a thorough compilation of medicines to descriptions of procedure techniques to diagnostic laboratory tests. The first edition was published in 1991. The goal is to provide assistance to housestaff and students in initial assessments of patients by trying to "bridge the gap between textbooks and patient care." They do not intend for the list of problems to be exhaustive nor do they intend the descriptions to be comprehensive. Although this book is intended for medical students and housestaff, it is more to the level of medical students or new interns. The authors of the individual sections range from physicians in private practice to associate professors to interns.The book has few illustrations, and those that are included are of limited utility. Tables of information are disseminated throughout the later chapters and in the index, which comprises an odd collection of data. The book has a soft cover and is compact enough to carry in a jacket pocket, although its weight may make it a bit cumbersome. As a second edition, its lone advantage would be an updated list of medications. This book fulfills its goals of providing information necessary for initial assessments and serving as a quick resource. It could even replace a couple of commonly used references because it contains clinical guidance as well as lists of medicines. From a practicality standpoint, it would more likely find its niche among medical students and interns early in their training, because most seasoned residents would be well versed in the majority of its contents.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Daniel Sisbarro, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: The authors have created a handbook that is intended to aid housestaff and medical students in assessing commonly encountered problems in a hospital setting as well as provide a reference containing assorted helpful information. The book is divided into seven chapters, but the bulk of the material is presented in outline form in the first chapter.

Purpose: The goal is to provide assistance to housestaff and students in initial assessments of patients by trying to "bridge the gap between textbooks and patient care." They do not intend for the list of problems to be exhaustive nor do they intend the descriptions to be comprehensive.
Audience: Although this book is intended for medical students and housestaff, it is more to the level of medical students or new interns. The authors of the individual sections range from physicians in private practice to associate professors to interns.
Features: The book has few illustrations, and those that are included are of limited utility.

The book has a soft cover and is compact enough to carry in a jacket pocket, although its weight may make it a bit cumbersome. As a second edition, its lone advantage would be an updated list of medications.
Assessment: This book fulfills its goals of providing information necessary for initial assessments and serving as a quick resource. It could even replace a couple of commonly used references because it contains clinical guidance as well as lists of medicines. From a practicality standpoint, it would more likely find its niche among medical students and interns early in their training, because most seasoned residents would be well versed in the majority of its contents.
