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 âpicture basedâ 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 âThe Patient Presents Withâ¦.âto show how patients appear in real life. The specific diseases are then presented, again in tabular format, to provide a unique, âat a glanceâ reference to all common medical conditions.
Making abundant use of valuable aide-mÃ©moires - associated illustrations, acronyms, highlighted âred flagsâ and medical emergencies - this book also provides a handy section for your own âpatient notesâ 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.
