Crash Course: Foundation Doctor's Guide to Medicine and Surgery, 2e (Paperback)

By (author): Miles D Witham BM BCh PhD, Paramjit Jeetley MB ChB MRCP(UK), Emily Morton MBChB

The world of medical training moves on and, to reflect these changes, a new edition of this Crash Course has been developed. The traditional House Officer year is now a two-year Foundation programme with an expanded syllabus and exposure to many more specialties. Fundamentally, however, the challenges remain the same - working in new environments, collaborating with new colleagues and facing up to new clinical responsibilities. This new edition of the 'survival guide' continues to provide the support and advice of its predecessor. To reflect the recent changes, there is a new chapter on the Foundation years as well as updated chapters on medical and surgical emergencies to incorporate current guidelines, and an enhanced chapter on ECG interpretation. This book should help you survive the occasional stormy voyage through the Foundation years and enable you to keep things in perspective.
  • Concise coverage of the essentials for on-the-ward reference
  • Symptom-based approach to acute medical and surgical presentations, with differential diagnoses and management
  • Separate sections on spotting and managing medical emergencies and surgical emergencies
  • Step-by-step guide to practical procedures
  • Enhanced chapter on ECG interpretation
  • New chapter on the Foundation Programme

You've read your textbook and your course notes. Now you need to apply your knowledge to real-life clinical situations.

The problem-solving approach of Core Clinical Cases guides you to think of the patient as a whole, rather than as a sequence of unconnected symptoms. With its emphasis on everyday practice strongly linked to underlying theory, the series integrates your knowledge with the realities of managing clinical problems, and provides a basis for developing sound analytical and confident decision-making skills.

The core areas of undergraduate study are covered in a logical sequence of learning activities; the same questions are asked of each clinical case, followed by detailed explanatory answers. OSCE counselling cases, with related questions and answers, also feature in each section.

Key concepts and important information are highlighted, and the reader-friendly layout reflects exactly the type of question you will encounter, making these volumes the perfect revision aid for all types of case-based examination.

The Medicine and Medical Specialties volume, in which all medical subjects have been brought together in a single volume for this second edition, focuses on the following topics: diabetes, endocrinology, rheumatology, renal medicine, cardiology, care of elderly people, respiratory medicine, gastroenterology, haematology, oncology emergencies; neurology, infectious diseases, and dermatology.

Volumes in the Core Clinical Cases series remain absolutely invaluable in the run up to clinical, written, or OSCE examinations, and ideal course companions for all undergraduate medical students at various stages in their clinical training.

In this new edition of A Clinical Approach to Medicine, the editor has assembled a panel of leading clinicians and researchers, and reorganized the material in the key areas of medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, oncology, rheumatology, renal medicine and respiratory medicine. This book is unique -- it reflects the experience of leading experts on patterns of disease in the Asia-Pacific region. There are several other similar books, but those are by authors from the West and therefore offer a different perspective. The book also includes discussions on genetic diseases, infection and antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics, highlighting local incidences and statistics. Each chapter starts with the basic concepts of a particular topic and gradually develops the theme to present the state of the art in the topic. With its focus on practices unique to Asia-Pacific, this book is a must for the student, practicing clinician and research scientist interested in the latest developments in this part of the world.

    Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery (Paperback)

    By (author): Hugo Farne, James Warbrick-Smith, Edward Norris-Cervetto

    Case books are increasingly popular with students but most assume that the student is capable of gathering all the necessary information and making the correct diagnosis when faced with an unfamiliar clinical problem. However, even if you know how a typical 'myocardial infarction' presents, do you know how to approach a patient presenting simply with 'chest pain'?

    Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery teaches students a hypothesis-driven, step-by-step, logical diagnostic approach to common patient presentations. This hands-on approach, which stimulates active learning, mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards, challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking, examination, investigation, management). In tackling these questions, students learn to integrate their existing knowledge and apply it to a real-life scenario from start to finish.

    Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (e.g. chest pain), rather than a physiological system (e.g. cardiology). By starting with a symptom, as doctors do in reality, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems - for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology - at the same time.

    Within each chapter, a long case walks the student through a logical method for tackling patients presenting with a given symptom. Subsequent short cases test this learning, whilst reminding students to be wary of other conditions that may present in a similar way. All the major presenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies.

    With references to landmark trials, relevant guidelines, and the inclusion of questions that are frequently asked in clinical settings, this book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards.
