Overview

Prepared by residents and chief residents with senior faculty advisors at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook is an updated, easily accessible quick reference for handling everyday problems encountered in gastroenterology. It covers both inpatient and outpatient approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualĀ® of Medical Therapeutics.

The first section covers common symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities; the second section focuses on specific diseases. Chapters are structured to help the clinician develop a logical, systematic approach to these common problems. Key points about the diagnosis and management of disorders are bulleted for easy reference. This edition also includes illustrations.

The Washington ManualĀ® is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Willem J de Villiers, MD, PhD, MHCM (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This second edition covers both inpatient and outpatient approaches to gastroenterology with the same frontline practicality as the well known Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics. Presented by residents and senior faculty at the Washington University School of Medicine, the book offers an updated, user-friendly, quick reference for handling everyday problems encountered in the field of gastroenterology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide trainees a synopsis of GI symptoms and signs, common GI disorders encountered in clinical practice, and up-to-date approaches to investigation and management. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but provides references to more descriptive sources in the literature. Both the content (style and length) and size will appeal to trainees.
Audience: The book is aimed predominantly at internal medicine residents and gastroenterology fellows. The chapters have been written and updated by trainees under the supervision of senior gastroenterology faculty.
Features: The first of the book's two major sections covers common symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities, while the second section focuses on specific GI disorders. The chapters are structured to help develop a logical, systematic approach to common problems. The key points are set out in bulleted lists for easy reference. This edition updates the chapters on nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, acute GI bleeding, and nutrition.
Assessment: This is a useful pocketbook vade mecum for trainees. The second edition is justified given the fast pace of advances in the gastroenterology field.
