Crash Course: Quick Reference Guide to Medicine and Surgery

With Student Consult Access

This brand new edition to the Crash Course series offers a unique way to learn, monitor and recap on the key aspects of medicine and surgery in a fast and effective manner.

Organised by systems of the body, each chapter in this new guide opens with an overview of the underlying physiology in an easy-to-understand ‘picture based’ format and also provides a useful explanation of the common tests and investigations needed to determine the presence and extent of disease.

Each chapter then presents a tabular summary of ‘The Patient Presents With….’to show how patients appear in real life. The specific diseases are then presented, again in tabular format, to provide a unique, ‘at a glance’ reference to all common medical conditions.

Making abundant use of valuable aide-mémoires - associated illustrations, acronyms, highlighted ‘red flags’ and medical emergencies - this book also provides a handy section for your own ‘patient notes’ thereby linking private study to the clinic to help keep key facts readily in mind.

Complete with self-assessment, this unique volume will be of value to medical students throughout all their undergraduate years and beyond.
