Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This pocket-sized ward companion for U.K. clinicians provides the basics of caring for inpatients and outpatients. Adapted from Kumar and Clark's Clinical Medicine, 7th edition (Elsevier, 2009), this book's chapters correspond to the ones in the main textbook.
Purpose: The intent is to provide students and doctors in training a quick reference to the basic discussions of common medical problems. This provides a nice, useful presentation with a reasonable discussion of the anatomy and physiology involved.
Audience: This book is well suited for students, doctors in training, and attending clinicians. The editors are well-known educators who bring a significant amount of experience to the task.
Features: This version is a nice small format that is easy to transport in a coat pocket. Each chapter gives a short explanation of the pertinent symptoms, pathophysiology, treatment, and complications. The numerous tables and figures are intuitive and precise. There are a few well chosen references and a number of websites to consult.
Assessment: This is a very comprehensive book for its size. Its excellent graphics give it a slight advantage over most others like it. Although the book is focused on U.K. clinicians, I enjoyed reading it and comparing its approach to American medicine, giving me a wider perspective of medical care.
From the Publisher

"This is a well presented, up to date, accurate and useful text for the junior (and slightly more senior) hospital practitioner. I know my own copy will end up dog-eared from constant use."
