Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: As the title suggests, this book provides very short synopses of the same topics in Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment 2009, 48th edition, McPhee and Papadakis (McGraw-Hill, 2008), from which it is derived, although they are arranged differently. In this book, the topics are arranged in alphabetical order, whereas in the main book the topics are arranged by organ systems.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide "practical, expert information...when you just have a few minutes." While time is at a significant premium for everyone, it appears that this book removes too much information.
Audience: The editor does not identify an audience and the language is too medical for the layperson, yet the depth too shallow for the medical professional.
Features: Each topic is organized into key features, clinical findings, diagnosis, treatment, outcome and evidence sections. This is a nice outline, but the topics are oversimplified. One very good feature is the collection of tables at the end of the book. They are helpful, but placed away from the topics, they appear to be an afterthought.
Assessment: I have a bit of difficulty with this book. Tools to save time are important, but the oversimplification here is too much. For example, there are separate sections for angina pectoris and angina pectoris, unstable. The information that I would expect to find in the unstable topic is in the generic preceding topic, and the diagnosis section is inadequate for either. I would have difficulty relying on what is included and what is not in this book.
