  • Key Features

    • The anatomy & physiology coverage 'sets the scene' and refreshes students' memory on the science they studied earlier in their course
    • The signs & symptoms sections serve as a mini-textbook of medicine by highlighting most important diseases associated with each body system
    • The history-taking and examination sections alert students to general principles and particular considerations relevant to interacting with patients
    • Eight different types of boxes classify information on key aspects of the text: differential diagnosis; emergency topics; examination of the elderly; questions to ask; areas for review; risk factors; symptoms and signs; and ‘red flag’ issues
    • Nearly 1000 illustrations, including over 500 photographs of physical signs as they present in real life
    • Colour diagrams illustrate underlying structure and function as well as demonstrating examination techniques
    • Now available on Student Consult with full online access to the text and illustrations
