The third edition of CLINICAL EXAMINATION provides a clear, practical and above all, superbly illustrated guide to all aspects of history taking and patient examination. Designed to be accessible both to medical students just starting their clinical attachments and to more experienced readers, the clear writing style, the innovative use of clinical photographs and the explanatory artworks combine to explain and clarify the concepts and skills necessary to take a history and perform an examination. The text is organised by body system, with each chapter structured the same way: firstly, underlying structure and function; secondly, signs, symptoms and abnormalities; thirdly, patient examination.
- "Icon boxes" highlight suggested questions to ask the patient · primary disorders associated with each body region and their causes · sample case histories · implications for emergency situations · implications for elderly patients · risk factors · and key points.
- Color photographs depict clinical manifestations as they present in real life.
- Color diagrams illustrate underlying structure and function and demonstrate examination techniques.
