Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kristi S. Dickson, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This handbook concisely summarizes original medical literature on topics commonly encountered in the practice of internal medicine and provides practice suggestions supported by clinically relevant research. When data are lacking, practice advice derived from expert opinion is presented.
Purpose: The book summarizes the relevant medical literature on the management of common adult medical problems in the fields of cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, nephrology, infectious disease, and neurology. It places at the reader's fingertips a database which would likely be familiar to a subspecialist. It makes the core points from the medical literature accessible at the bedside, on rounds, or in the clinic. The reader can base practice decisions on medical evidence or expert advice rather than merely following the practice habits of more senior practitioners.
Audience: The book is written for internal medicine residents and practitioners. It may also be useful to family medicine physicians or medical students. The editors are fellows and faculty members in various subspecialties of internal medicine. The bulk of contributing authors are from Massachusetts General Hospital.
Features: Organized by subspecialty and clinical problem, each chapter begins with a focused introduction to the problem. An in-depth outline and tables summarizing relevant clinical data follow. A list of commonly-used abbreviations appears at the end of each chapter. Classic as well as recent studies are presented and thoroughly referenced. Topics include the management of acute myocardial infarction, asthma, gastrointestinal bleeding, acute renal failure, community-acquired pneumonia, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and stroke.
Assessment: This is a unique, portable reference tool that gives the reader rapid access to a core of medical knowledge supported by the literature. It guides the reader in making evidence-based clinical decisions without having to exhaustively search the literature. It also serves as an overview of previously published data when the reader wishes to evaluate newly published information. Given the ever-expanding mass of published medical literature, and the push to make more evidence-based practice decisions, this is a handbook worthy of a spot in one's coat pocket.
