Overview

From the trainee preparing for a board certification examination to the senior faculty member or other health care provider needing a ready reference, the 10th edition of Professional Guide to Diseases features full clinical coverage of more than 600 disorders. Organized around disease clusters, this comprehensive, clear and concise guide to disease information, ranging from causes, signs and symptoms, and diagnosis through treatment and special considerations, has been updated with the latest in original research and practice guidelines and designed to provide a brief yet comprehensive overview of a large array of disease processes. This 10th edition features improved sections focused on health promotion and disease prevention— topics that have been receiving added emphasis in health care circles in recent years – as well as updates on many conditions for which a variety of clinical treatment guidelines have been published recently by major professional medical and surgical organizations. The Professional Guide to Diseases continues to feature information on efficient health care delivery for routine conditions seen almost daily, as well as cultural considerations in patient care, information on potential bioterrorism agents, updates on rare diseases, and inclusion of complementary and alternative therapies for specific conditions, as well as additional coverage for more than 50 life-threatening disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Heather Huang, MD (University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health)
Description: This is the tenth edition of a comprehensive, quick reference on disease management and patient care. The ninth edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive and authoritative quick reference on disease management and patient care. These valuable objectives are met with the extraordinary amount of information contained in this compact reference.
Audience: This book is written for a wide range of healthcare providers, from trainees preparing for board certification examinations to senior faculty members or any other healthcare providers needing a ready reference.
Features: This edition covers over 600 disorders encountered in general medicine practices. Each disease is presented in a concise standard format, covering causes and incidence, complications, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. The information gives readers a broad overview of medical diseases and just enough detail to be to the point. The format is very much like an encyclopedia, and it makes use of full color pictures, artwork, and diagrams to illustrate the pathophysiology of many conditions. Algorithms and tables concisely summarize key points.
Assessment: I find this book most useful in providing a broad overview of topics. There is just enough detail to be aware of important key conceptual points; it is not designed to be a detailed guide to treatment. It is an encyclopedia that would be useful for many healthcare providers, at any level of training or practice.
