Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian C. Liem, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a concise, high-yield review of the fundamental principles needed for successful practice in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Its Q&A format actively engages readers, making acquisition of knowledge easy. The "Top 100 Secrets" and "Key Points" sections provide an efficient review.
Purpose: It is designed as a quick and accessible review of practical PM&R facts, based on current evidence-based medicine, in a natural and engaging Q&A format akin to the traditional Socratic approach. The book is portable, for use in the clinic, the gym, at home, or in the library for background research. It certainly meets the stated objectives and does not pretend to be more than it is.
Audience: Its intended audience includes interns, residents, attending physicians, allied health professionals (physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists). This is an excellent resource for medical students, residents, and junior attendings. Specialists in other areas who would benefit from this include those in family medicine, internal medicine, and sports medicine. The editors are leaders in the field of PM&R and the contributors are respected clinicians and researchers who have published papers in their fields or are known for their expertise.
Features: The book covers the entire spectrum of physiatry topics, including stroke and spinal cord rehabilitation, wound management, neurogenic bowel and bladder, gait principles, orthotics, musculoskeletal injuries, and pain medicine. Each chapter addresses the key points and includes a definition of pathology, epidemiology, pertinent anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment based on the evidence. Although there are some pictures and diagrams, this book would benefit from a few more, especially in the neurogenic bladder chapter when describing innervation to the bladder. The stroke chapter would benefit from a diagram of common lesions (i.e., lesions shown in cross sections of the brain stem and cortex).
Assessment: This is an excellent book for PM&R residents in training for efficient review of basic knowledge. The Q&A style mirrors the thought process many physicians have in thinking about clinical problems. With the easy to read and extract information, it is a great go-to reference for that need-to-know, right this minute answer. This edition is better organized than the previous one, placing topics that are similar to each other (SCI, stroke, neurogenic bladder, spasticity) closer to one another.
