Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This book in the Washington Manual Subspecialty Consult Series covers internal medicine topics, primarily in a bulleted format, saving space and making the information very easy to scan. The first edition was published in 2003.
Purpose: Topics are based upon the most common internal medicine consultation subjects and the book is not intended to be comprehensive. The authors and contributors provide a very useful book in that vein.
Audience: The audience, residents who are working on the inpatient consultation service, is presented with the most pertinent facts they must have. All the contributors are staff or faculty members of the Washington University School of Medicine and experts in their fields.
Features: Chapters are well formatted, beginning with an introduction to the topic, moving through causes, presentation, and management, and ending with selected readings and references. Each section is succinct and to the point. Tables and figures are limited.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful book for its audience. I also found it useful to refresh my memory when considering topics that I have encountered infrequently.
