Editorial Reviews

Stephanie R. Amlung
This is a comprehensive textbook designed to help the beginning practitioner conduct thorough physical examinations. A balance of body system compartmentalization with a holistic approach to the patient's needs is provided. This edition is updated from the last version published in 1995. The purpose is to offer guidance to the beginning practitioner in the areas of history taking and physical examination. The authors emphasizes the relationship between the practitioner and the patient, stressing that each patient is unique. Given the changes associated with today's healthcare reform, focusing on the patient rather than on the condition is an extremely worthy objective. This book is written for the entry-level practitioner in all healthcare specialties. Each chapter includes approaches and techniques relevant to infants, children, adolescents, older adults, and pregnant women where applicable. The book is authored by physicians and doctorally-prepared registered nurses. The authors begin with the importance of establishing a rapport with the patient and discuss the need to understand cultural diversity as well as incorporate it into the history-taking process. Each chapter includes a review of anatomy and physiology, followed by pertinent health history considerations as well as common abnormalities associated with that body system. Guidelines for putting all the pieces of physical assessment together are provided and the authors challenge the reader to incorporate critical thinking principles into the process. The color photographs aid understanding. This is a well-written book full of the information necessary to begin the physical examination process. At times,the authors' attempts to incorporate all stages of the life cycle become a bit overwhelming, making it difficult to focus on the broader examination process. In this edition they incorporate issues facing patients and healthcare practitioners today.

Reviewer: Donald R. Frey, MD(Creighton University Medical Center)
Description: This is the fifth edition of a popular illustrated guide to physical examination. Like its predecessors, this work is filled with tables, charts, and high quality illustrations of both normal and abnormal physical findings.
Purpose: The book is intended to teach basic physical exam skills to early learners in the various medical disciplines. As technology has advanced, solid examination skills are all too often overlooked in medical curricula. This guide nicely describes and illustrates physical findings, but correlates them with basic physiology as well.
Audience: It is intended primarily for early learners in the various medical disciplines. In this, it succeeds quite nicely. However, it will be appreciated by all practitioners who periodically stumble upon unusual physical findings. The authors are well respected clinicians representing a broad range of disciplines.
Features: The work flows from organ system to organ system with ease, describing and illustrating not only basic exam skills, but showing unique abnormal findings as well. Attention is paid to normal variants in findings that may not be classical findings, but nonetheless may be unexpected. Mnemonics are listed that will be very helpfull to new learners. A section on critical thinking and processing exam findings at the end of the book ties the entire work together nicely.
Assessment: This book continues to be one of the best illustrated guides to the physical exam that students may consult. It is readable, down to earth in its instruction, and strongly scientifically founded. It will continue to teach the often glossed-over "complete physical" to generations of medical and nursing students, as well as be a reference for seasoned practitioners.

Brandon-Hill listed the fourth edition as an initial purchase. This text for students in their first health professional experiences, emphasizes that patients are primary and must be well served. The initial six chapters discuss the development of a trusting and mutually reinforcing relationship, which requires mastery of history- taking and physical examination, and understanding of cultural backgrounds and differences; and important elements of assessment (mental status, growth and development, and nutrition). New to this edition: 80 more illustrations (bringing the total up to 1,350), and numerous tables and information boxes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

    BEWARE--NO video or audio when purchased at bn.com

    Purchasing this book from Barnes and Nobles is not the same as purchasing it from your college bookstore. There are some very important key elements missing when purchasing at Barnes and Nobles. The book description includes mention of 60 video clips demonstrate exam techniques for each system and are downloadable for use on Video iPod devices, 25 new anatomy and physiology animations provide narrated explanations of processes beneath the skin, and new audio chapter summaries, downloadable for use on MP3 players, offer a convenient way to review key content on the go. What they fail to mention is that those elements are only available when purchasing the book from your college bookstore.
