Now in its ninth edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine 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 proffesional 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

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.
