Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 "This is an excellent resource for medical students and residents in physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is a quick and easy reference on a majority of topics important to training in rehabilitation medicine. This edition is updated and more in depth compared to the first edition, which was published almost 10 years ago, and is one of the only pocket reference guides for practitioners in this field."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Leda A Ghannad, BS, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This update of a quick, pocket-sized, reference for busy rehabilitation medicine clinicians is reconstructed with more clearly defined chapters, larger charts and graphics, and more in-depth topic discussion than appeared in the first edition published in 2003.
Purpose: The purpose is to elaborate on topics discussed in the original edition, provide more evidence-based recommendations, and include new chapters. As one of the only pocket-sized references available for clinicians in rehabilitation medicine, this is a useful tool. While this edition goes into more depth, it is also much larger in size than the original and is written mostly in paragraph format, which is not necessarily conducive to quick use.
Audience: It is intended primarily for medical students and physical medicine and rehabilitation residents. The first edition also was intended as a handy reference for any professional involved in rehabilitation medicine. Contributors include experts in physical medicine and rehabilitation, including attending and resident physicians in PM&R, attending rheumatologists, and therapists.
Features: This book covers topics important to those training to care for patients with rehabilitation needs due to TBI, stroke, spinal cord injury, and amputation/prosthetics. The chapter on musculoskeletal medicine starts with an excellent chart detailing the primary motions of the limbs, muscles involved, and innervation. It also includes an in-depth chapter on electrodiagnostic studies, including multiple charts, diagrams, and EMG recordings that are an excellent reference for those in training. While this edition includes chapters on pediatric and burn rehabilitation that were not part of the original, it fails to include certain topics important in rehabilitation medicine, such as cancer rehabilitation and industrial medicine.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for medical students and residents in physical medicine and rehabilitation. It is a quick and easy reference on a majority of topics important to training in rehabilitation medicine. This edition is updated and more in depth compared to the first edition, which was published almost 10 years ago, and is one of the only pocket reference guides for practitioners in this field.
