Cases in Clinical Medicine brings the study of medicine to life with over 100 patient case studies that simulate actual clinical practice. Addressing a comprehensive range of medical conditions - from cardiovascular diseases to psychiatric illnesses - this interactive text teaches students how to apply analytical skills and didactic knowledge to real-life scenarios.
Patient vignettes are followed by multiple choice questions in established SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) format through which students explore relevant aspects of patient history, physical examination, and diagnostic studies to determine diagnosis and treatment. The correct response for each step in the case is provided along with evidence-based explanations and epidemiological data. Cases in Clinical Medicine is also an excellent preparatory tool for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE).
Cases in Clinical Medicine is divided into 10 chapters
Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and then choosing the best course of action is an essential skill for doctors. Exploring initial medical assessment, 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency or outpatient department, on the ward, or in the community setting.
Each case begins with a succinct summary of the patient's history, examination, and initial investigation. The text includes photographs where relevant and questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answers provide a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate.
Most of the cases included are common problems but the book also includes more unusual cases to illustrate specific points and to emphasize that rare things do present. The first 20 cases are arranged by systems; the next 80 are in random order because symptoms such as breathlessness and pain may relate to many different clinical problems in various systems.
These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical symptoms and signs and to develop the diagnostic and management skills needed for the cases they will encounter on the job.
A new, fully updated edition of very popular collection of short cases arranged by clinical area, emphasising the key diagnostic features of clinical conditions as commonly presented in the short-case part of the Final MB and MRCP examinations. Also included are likely instructions or commands expected from the examiner for each condition, and the key points which the candidate must tell the examiner. A must-have for the final-year undergraduate and trainee doctor.
'This app is the most useful guide that money can buy for the final exams in the current MBChB undergraduate course. It covers important areas of clinical medicine in a question based format and highlights classical scenarios. The questions raised are classical of examiners in the long and short case examinations.
This is a must buy for any undergraduate medical student!!!'
'The app is a must during the period that the young doctor or student is on the wards. It allows one to focus on the important physical findings and the relavant clinical pearls associated with the different medical conditions met... It discusses important physical findings and their diagnostic importance. I have found it useful in preparing for attending ward rounds and also for sharpening my clinical skills. The discussion section is well organised such that undergraduates as well as postgraduates can benefit and the material is up to date with good references for further reading.'
