Overview

Prepared by residents and attending physicians at Massachusetts General Hospital, this pocket-sized looseleaf is one of the best-selling references for medical students, interns, and residents on the wards and candidates reviewing for internal medicine board exams. In bulleted lists, tables, and algorithms, Pocket Medicine provides key clinical information about common problems in internal medicine, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology, nephrology, hematology-oncology, infectious diseases, endocrinology, and rheumatology.

The six-ring binder resembles the familiar "pocket brain" notebook that most students and interns carry and allows users to add notes. This Fourth Edition is fully updated and includes an eight-page color insert with key and classic abnormal images.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This pocket reference for housestaff and attending physicians who treat hospitalized patients contains relevant facts that should be kept in mind, a quick reference for staging classifications of tumors, and many other very useful pieces of information to save physicians time. This update is in keeping with the goal of staying as current as possible.
Purpose: The goal is to provide concise information that clinicians need, and the authors have done an extremely good job. The book has a tremendous amount of current information at a time when that information changes significantly and frequently. The authors have selected the most pertinent information to include.
Audience: This is clearly a book for those who have the opportunity to see a wide variety of patients in their daily practice. The authors include residents, fellows, and attendings, and the book demonstrates the tremendous teaching abilities of young physicians who are still in their training, to help train others (including their teachers). The editor can take tremendous pride in selecting his authors and bringing the book to fruition.
Features: As a concise reference of current medical knowledge, the book has an excellent section on cardiology, including many eponyms, giving multiple classifications such as the older Goldman classification for preoperative evaluation and the current ACC guidelines; an exceptionally easy to understand section on ventilator management; and sections on acid-base and diabetes. There is a very helpful formula and ICU medication section. The unique 6-ring loose-leaf format can accommodate additional pages as needed in a plastic cover that is tremendously practical.
Assessment: This is an extraordinary addition to the many resident books available on the market. This is clearly at the top of the list as practical, useful, easy to use, and complete. Keeping books like these current is a major problem, but this one does well keeping the pace.

    Mandate for every 3rd year medical student through residency!

    This book is a freakin' lifesaver. It's in binder format, so you can always add/remove as you need. Has the article references on the newest treatment/management recommendations. You will be pimped during rounds, and this book has all the answers. Saved me more than once, let me tell you.

    A reviewer

    This is the best review book I have ever seen, second to Oxford handbook clinical medicine (american edition). However the size and weight of pocket medicine makes it much easier for an intern or resident to carry it during clinical rounds. I used it during internship, residency and fellowship for first hand information and used 'uptodate' software on my PDA for more detailed info. These sources will prove to be your 'life savers' during internship, residency and any clinical fellowship. Would definitely recommend to buy it as a must.

    The best ever!!!!!

    By far the best info/size ratio for any medical book. Compared to the 'big' Harrison's - it's an intelligent synopsis of the most important/common internal medicine scenarios. It is relatively uptodate. 'Smarter' and more functional than the 'baby' Harrison's. I'm first in line for the 3rd edition!!!
