Overview

Moser's Primary Care for Physician Assistants: Companion Handbook by Richard Dehn, Rick Dehn

When less is more and time is short,this handy pocket manual effectively condenses the clinical portions of its parent text to provide concise yet authoritative answers to clinical questions. The emphasis is on-the-spot diagnosis and management,and each chapter is referenced to Moser's Primary Care for Physician Assistants for a more detailed review. The organization parallels that of the Moser text,coupling a Clinical Review By Body Systems (ie. Endocrinology,Neurology,Respiratory) with a Clinical Review By Specialty (ie Pediatrics,Surgery,Radiology),then focuses on Clinical/Diagnostic Skills (ie. Complete Neurological,Cardiovascular,Respiratory exams). Where possible the information is summarized in tables or presented in outline format,and clinical pearls highlight the coverage.
