A pocketbook in the "Colour Guides" series, which helps the clinical medicine student in the recognition of the clinical signs of medical disease. This guide covers all the general signs and then looks at the main body systems and the signs of the major system-based diseases.
This pocket-sized book contains over 150 colour photographs and appropriately detailed text and will help the reader to elicit and interpret the signs of disease when examining a patient. The book covers the general signs (basically skin, hands, mouth etc) then looks at the main body systems and the signs of the major system-based diseases (eg asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis.) The illustrations include clinical photographs, radiographs, endoscopic views and pathological slides. The text for the systems outlines the aetiology, lists the clinical features and gives advice on investigations as well as treatment. Clinical Signs is ideal as a pocket reference, or as a revision aid to larger texts. Features: * Compact colour atlas with appropriately detailed text * Useful for anyone required to recognise the signs of disease * Ideal companion to larger texts on general medicine and clinical examination * Lavishly illustrated, yet excellent value for money * Perfect for revision or as a pocket reference
