Handbook of Signs & Symptoms


Thoroughly updated for its Fourth Edition, this convenient, portable handbook is a comprehensive guide to the evaluation of more than 530 signs and symptoms. It has all the assessment information busy clinicians need in a single source. Each entry describes the sign or symptom and covers emergency interventions if needed, history and physical examination, medical and other causes with their associated signs and symptoms, and special considerations such as tests, monitoring, treatment, and gender and cultural issues. This edition identifies specific signs and symptoms caused by emerging diseases such as avian flu, monkeypox, respiratory syncytial virus, norovirus, metabolic syndrome, blast lung injury, Kawasaki disease, and popcorn lung disease. New information on patient teaching and obtaining a health history is included.

This book is great for the clinics. If you are looking for something to help you diagnosis common symptoms this is the book. It is super easy to read. Drawback: To big to carry in your coat.
