Overview

This brand-new handbook covers all of the essential topics encountered in the daily practice—written by contributors from the Johns Hopkins Hospital. A volume in the Mosby Handbook series, it concisely discusses all diseases and disorders in an easy-to-follow, standardized outline format. Readers will find all of the features that have made The Harriet Lane Handbook the most popular handbook in pediatrics. Within each chapter are sections on pearls and pitfalls, differential diagnoses, algorithms, and reviews of the most current literature. And, it includes a handy formulary with complete dosage information.
Also available as PDA software (0-323-01956-0) and as a book/PDA software package (0-323-01967-6). The PDA software contains all of the elements from the text, including formulations, and medical calculations.

• Uses a consistent, templated format in each chapter that includes Fast Facts · Epidemiology · Clinical Presentation · Diagnostics · Management · Pearls & Pitfalls · and References.
• Presents a wealth of algorithms in each chapter that facilitate diagnosis and management.Integrates evidence-based medicine and rationales throughout, with conclusions based on current, key references which are cited at each chapter's end.Includes a handy formulary at the end of the book, for instant access to dosage information.
• Cross references text to the appropriate information in the drug formulary.
• Discusses co-morbitities in each chapter as well as at-risk populations.
• Offers a "Fast Facts" section that provides appendices on lab values · pregnancy and medical therapeutics · drug interactions · IV preparation and administration · drugs in renal failure · immunization therapies · infection control · and critical care formulas.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jaya Virmani, MD (Tsung & Virmani Medical Group, Inc.)
Description: This handbook is a good guide for internal medicine residents who deal with basic, common inpatient medical diseases and problems. It helps the medical resident properly evaluate patients, develop differential diagnoses, and effectively treat patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to present information in a user-friendly format that will perpetuate interest in teaching and learning. This book is helpful to medical residents in training and meets the author's objectives.
Audience: This book is written for students and residents. The authors are credible as this book has been reviewed by faculty.
Features: Each chapter of this disease-based book is designed to address diagnoses commonly encountered at Johns Hopkins Hospital. It covers a wide range of common diseases in the categories of cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, critical care, and rheumatology. It also presents some information on HIV, nutrition, and toxicology. The strongest areas of this book are diseases of cardiology and gastroenterology. The book has excellent flow sheets and tables which summarize important topics and I particularly enjoyed reading the pitfalls and pearls at the end of each chapter which help with clinical management of the patient. The rapid reference section in the back of the book is needed for any housestaff to help them recall equations, tables, and important differential diagnoses. The color photos are useful for some of the less common diseases. In some places, the content is too brief so that it leaves the reader wanting more detail. However, for medical residents, this is probably appropriate since more information might be overwhelming.
Assessment: This book is useful for medical residents who need a rapid reference in the hospital. I feel it is more thorough than other housestaff manuals, such as The Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, 30th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2001).
