Product description

In the early 1980s, two junior doctors from Oxford noted down all the medical information they found valuable to keep. As medical students they learned most not from organised lecturers, but from clinical sessions - on the ward and in clinic. Useful notes were written on scraps of paper and it was from this that the original Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine was born. No other book has entered the hearts, minds and pockets of so many doctors and medical students the world over. Now in its 7th edition, the main features and essence of the original edition remain unchanged. Developed over 21 years, the Handbook encompasses the experience, knowledge and wisdom of more than 10 different authors. With its characteristic combination of incisive guidance, wit, a lucid style and memorable epigrams, it continues to be the leading pocket reference of clinical medicine. The 7th edition is fully equipped for the modern doctor with a brand new design and integrated colour pictures on common problems such as rashes, scars and jaundice. There is a new chapter on radiology and new information on consent and how to handle common calls. The epidemiology chapter has been revised in line with the undergraduate curriculum and there is greater coverage of medications and doses, clinical skills and surgery. There are also numerous other updates and improvements throughout, many suggested by extensive market research and readers' feedback. Three new junior co-authors have been brought on board to ensure that the content reflects what readers really need. The PDA version enables enhanced, multi-layered access to the entire text, illustrations and tables. Fast access is available via the table of contents, index and full-text search and there is a facility for bookmarking and annotating the text. It is suitable for all Palm and Pocket PC devices, as well as PDA-enabled mobile phones.
