Overview


Fully updated and revised for its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Examination and Practical Skills is the only truly comprehensive pocket guide to all aspects of history taking, physical examination, practical procedures, data interpretation, and communication skills. Packed with expert knowledge and practical guidance it gives realistic advice on coping with common situations.

The handbook is structured to allow rapid reference of key information, and to aid understanding with concise and practical clinical guidance. Full colour throughout, it includes over 140 detailed photographs and diagrams of all common examination skills to show you exactly what you need to do and the theory, practice and complications for each. More photos have been included, with over half completely new and specially produced for this edition. Each system chapter covers applied anatomy, history, examination, and the presentation of common and important disorders. Data interpretation covers the basics of x-rays, ECGs and other key areas. A new chapter on the eyes is included along with the sections on body language and non-verbal communication, and the section on practical procedures has been expanded. This handbook will help to ensure you have the confidence and skill to carry out an 'A' grade examination every time.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book focuses on the correct performance of the medical interview (history) and physical examination of patients. Several noteworthy aspects of the book include the exceptionally descriptive pictures, adequate space for personal notes, the inclusion of very helpful "Important Presenting Patterns" sections in chapters, a very basic procedures chapter, and very basic electrocardiographic and radiologic chapters. The style is distinctly British.
Purpose: The authors state the need for a comprehensive text for junior physicians. The format serves exceptionally well as a pocket-reference that is easy to access to refresh the memory and to remember specific points regarding a specific organ system.
Audience: The book is written primarily for medical students and residents. However, it is also a very good summary for practitioners when they are looking for a specific reminder while performing an uncommon physical examination. Although written for a British medical audience, it easily can be used by all.
Features: Categorized by organ systems, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy and physiology is followed by the significant/characteristic symptoms that might be encountered. The associated physical findings that should be looked for are described extremely well, supported by excellent color photographs and illustrations. Finally, one of the best features of each chapter, the "Important Presenting Patterns" section, greatly enhances understanding. In keeping with the focus on junior physicians, there is a concise, yet quite complete chapter on electrocardiographic analysis, and a basic one on reading radiographs. The page size does not lend itself to very detailed reproduction of the x-rays, but it does have merit for house officers who are looking only for the basics.
Assessment: The simple organization of the organ systems, the pertinent historical cues a practitioner should be looking for, the completeness of the description of the physical findings, supported by the excellent graphics, makes this one of the best texts on physical examination available. I highly recommend this book to medical educators, medical students, residents, and attendings. There is much to be learned by those at all levels of training from this well organized, well written book.
