Fully updated and revised for its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Examination and Practical Skills is the only truly comprehensive pocket guide to all aspects of history taking, physical examination, practical procedures, data interpretation, and communication skills. Packed with expert knowledge and practical guidance it gives realistic advice on coping with common situations.
The handbook is structured to allow rapid reference of key information, and to aid understanding with concise and practical clinical guidance. Full colour throughout, it includes over 140 detailed photographs and diagrams of all common examination skills to show you exactly what you need to do and the theory, practice and complications for each. More photos have been included, with over half completely new and specially produced for this edition. Each system chapter covers applied anatomy, history, examination, and the presentation of common and important disorders. Data interpretation covers the basics of x-rays, ECGs and other key areas. A new chapter on the eyes is included along with the sections on body language and non-verbal communication, and the section on practical procedures has been expanded. This handbook will help to ensure you have the confidence and skill to carry out an ‘A’ grade examination every time.
Review from previous edition: “The simple organization of the organ systems, the pertinent historical cures a practitioner should be looking for, the completeness of the description of the physical findings, supported by the excellent graphics, makes this one of the best texts on physical examination available…there is much to be learned by those at all levels of training from this well-organized, well-written book.”
“The book is part of the Oxford Handbook series (like the cheese and onion) and will therefore be familiar to the majority of students. Being a handbook is particulary useful and means it’ll fit in most pockets without trouble… To finish this excellent piece of work, Thomas and Monaghan have included a chapter on interpretation – going through most of radiology, clinical chemistry and not forgetting the dreaded ECGs.”
