Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This handbook is a general survey of common medical illnesses without the deep discussions or specific references to the literature.
Purpose: It is very similar to the many books published by teaching institutions for their housestaff as a memory aid for the investigations of various common complaints.
Audience: This book focuses on the investigation phase of the medical encounter and, as such, is geared mostly to those who are in training and who may rely on the memory aids for specific investigations.
Features: It is divided into the traditional organ systems and further by presenting complaint. The information is presented in a bullet format, allowing the specific and important items to readily stand out.
Assessment: This is a nice memory aid for new clinicians as well as a refresher for clinicians who have been in the practice of medicine for a long time.
