Description

From reviews:


"This is about the best OSCE preparation book available." Doody's, summer 2016


Essential Examination has been comprehensively revised and new sections added:




Neonatal - the 'baby check'
Female genitalia
Digital rectal examination
GALS screening
Foot and ankle
Elbow
Critically ill patient
Confirming death


The new edition retains the unique format and approach of the original.




Clear, step-by-step guides to each examination, including useful things to say to the patient (or an examiner), detailed descriptions of special tests, etc.
In a separate column is a collection of key information: potential findings, differential diagnoses of clinical signs and practical tips.
On the following pages there are facts relating to that particular examination and, in many sections, there are also tips on how to present your findings succinctly - a skill which is crucial to master for exam success.


If you are learning how to examine patients, or preparing for an OSCE, then you need Essential Examination!


Student thoughts on the second edition:

is an absolute must for any final year."


"I LOVE this
book - it has all the key examinations with each fitting on a single double
page spread."


"Best
preparation for OSCEs. Learn to do these steps within the time limits and you
will pass!"



"Pretty much THE essential textbook for clinical
examinations for all medical students."
