Product description

Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with "on the go". Their highly affordable price represents great value for those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Topics reflect information needs stemming from today's integrated undergraduate & foundation courses: * Common investigations (ECG, Chest X-Ray, etc) * Clinical skills (patient examination, etc) * Important and/or complex specialties in which students receive comparatively little dedicated training (psychiatry, ophthalmology) Key Points * Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format - fits in back pocket! * An indispensable guide to the neurological examination, which students and junior doctors invariably regard as one of the most complicated and difficult parts of physical examination to master * Logical, sequential content: two introductory chapters focussing on general clinical skills, history taking and examination in neurology; then chapters which explain how best to approach the examination of specific systems or regions (cranial nerves, upper limbs, etc) each one opening with recap of relevant anatomy & physiology and closing with a handy summary; finally, chapters on the examination of stroke and unconscious patients, neurological screening, and how best to synthesise findings.
