Starting life in the early 1980s as handwritten notes to help the authors get through their junior doctor years, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is now the world's bestselling pocket medical handbook. This 7th edition retains the much-loved essence of the original, but has been updated and improved with a whole host of new features. There is a new chapter on radiology; new information on consent and how to handle common calls; and greater coverage of medications and doses, clinical skills and surgery. Maintaining its status as the only choice for junior doctors and medical students, the OHCM is just what the doctor ordered.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is an update of a handbook of medicine aimed at U.K. general practitioners. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: The authors note that in an era of increasing specialization, it can be difficult for general practice physicians to know where they fit in. This book brings together many disciplines to provide an up-to-date book of clinical medicine.
Audience: Because it is aimed at general practitioners in the U.K., the book contains lab values and algorithms standard in U.K. practice, but it still has value for clinicians the world over who wish to compare standards in medicine, which is as much an art as it is a science.
Features: The information is presented through the classic organ system divisions, with 1-3 page sections on different symptoms and diagnoses. The font is necessarily small to maintain the pocket size, and the graphics are particularly well done for the size. Many breakout sections and figures highlight specific points for consideration. The book uses frequent symbols for emphasis that are nonintrusive, but easily identified. Creative links to historical figures and art appear throughout, bringing a lighter tone and keeping the text from becoming a dry read.
Assessment: This is a valuable handbook that is well worth the investment.
