Oxford Handbook of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation Summary

Oxford Handbook of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation by Edited by Drew Provan

With major advances in technology there are thousands of clinical and laboratory tests available. The first part of this handbook provides a patient-oriented approach to investigation where key symptoms and signs are described along with tests that may be of value in reaching a diagnosis. The remainder is speciality-centred and provides a comprehensive review of all available tests within a given subject. Contributors are all active clinicians who are engaged in medical practice, and who appreciate the problems faced by junior doctors. The handbook should also be of value to senior medical students, who will soon be on the wards and responsible for ordering tests on their patients.

Oxford Handbook of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation Reviews

... the 'black bible' has been a very useful find. Written by active clinicians, this is a very practical book, extremely useful for a quick reference on the wards and one of the few pieces of medical literature that concentrates on investigations and how to interpret them. Northwing (Sheffield Medical School Gazette) This book not only tells you which investigations to order in numerous clinical situations but how to interpret the results, which is all-important. It is written by clinicians, is wonderfully pragmatic and the last word on clinical investigation ... Strongly recommended. Dr Harry Brown The editors deserve credit for bringing together such a comprehensive oversight of currently available tests. Although this little handbook is likely to be of most benefit to the junior doctor on the 'shop floor', it could be a valuable source of knowledge to more senior doctors, medical students and anyone who has a role in ordering or carrying out investigative procedures.
