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.

I really like it! I'll definately be referring to this one and recommending to my students. Excellent! * British Medical Association Book Awards Finalist * The simple organization, the pertinent historical cues a practitioner should be looking for, the completeness of the descriptions of the physical findings, supported by the excellent graphics, makes this one of the best books on physical examination available. I highly recommend it to medical educators and medical students, residents and attendings. There is much to be learned by those at all levels of training from this well-organized, well-written book... 5 stars! * Doody's Notes *
