Overview

Now available in a mini format, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, Ninth Edition continues to be the definitive pocket-friendly guide to medicine. The culmination over 25 years of experience at the bedside and in the community, this handbook is packed with practical advice, wit, and wisdom.

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine presents clinical information in a clear way that makes it easy to revise, remember, and implement on the ward. It gives reliable advice on what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, with clinical photographs and diagrams that bring theory to life. Uniquely for a medical text, this book weaves history, literature, art, and philosophy into its survey of medicine, casting new light on the specialties and encouraging the reader to see beyond the practical aspects of medicine and adopt a patient-centred approach to care.

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine looks better than ever, with a more modern design and over 600 colour images and illustrations. The History and Examination chapter has been completely revamped with systematic flowcharts and new illustrations so that it better reflects real bedside practice. The index, cross-references, and references have been overhauled to make them even easier to use. Every chapter has been written with supervision from experts in each field to ensure accuracy, and updated to reflect relevant guidelines from the NHS, NICE, the Resuscitation Council and other key professional bodies.

Loved and trusted by generations of doctors, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine continues to be an indispensable companion for the practice of modern medicine.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This handbook as long been the medical students' and junior doctors' essential reference. As a nurse practitioner, I have found this new edition useful as a quick and concise reference and for learning about unfamiliar conditions. It is light, pocket size and has a plastic flexicover...I highly recommend it."—Siobhan Roe for Nursing Standard

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: This lightweight, pocket-sized book covers a wide array of information that clinicians may want to reference on the go. This edition has been updated in response to user feedback with more full-color images, a chapter on the history and examination, and new information on radiology, infections, and surgical procedures.
Purpose: It is intended as a definitive pocket guide to clinical medicine.
Audience: This book is written primarily for medical students or medical and surgical residents. It is written at an appropriate level for any healthcare provider who would like quick access to this information.
Features: It begins with an introduction to clinical thinking in medicine and a section on the history and examination. It then covers each of the major organ systems (e.g. cardiovascular, chest, endocrinology, gastroenterology, etc.). Each chapter has an appropriate review of physiology and pathophysiology when relevant, and discusses common diseases along with diagnosis, workup, and treatment. Numerous concise tables and beautiful color images accompany the text. The only shortcoming of this book is the incredibly small font.
Assessment: This truly is a comprehensive, pocket-sized book. It covers basic topics such as physiology, pathophysiology, and physical examination skills, as well as complex topics such as diagnosis, workup, and treatment of diseases of various organ systems. In addition to medical topics, it covers common surgical topics, radiology, and practical procedures, and is updated with new sections. It has beautiful full-color images as well as concise tables. Color-coded tabs make it easy to find relevant information quickly. The only downside is the extremely small font.
