On Rounds: 1000 Internal Medicine Pearls


By (author): Lewis Landsberg MD

Clinical judgment is a critical aspect – perhaps the most critical aspect – of efficient, accurate, and cost-effective patient care. Focusing on essential clinical skills, On Rounds: 1000 Internal Medicine Pearls helps clinicians in training and in practice to identify the critical findings that will simplify complex clinical problems and lead to an accurate diagnosis. One thousand easy-to-remember clinical aphorisms, or “pearls,” help you distinguish the important findings from the incidental, pointing out the distinctive features amidst the mass of data that is accumulated in the evaluation of a sick patient, and leading to the development of mature clinical judgment.
  • Go “on rounds” with one of the most respected educators in internal medicine and learn from his nearly 50 years of clinical experience.
  • Focus on the areas that are often a source of confusion for students, trainees, and even seasoned practitioners.
  • Learn each pearl in a relevant clinical context, with tables, clinical images, and physiology information, where appropriate.
  • Recognize “black pearls:” statements that, although widely believed, are demonstrably false.
  • Improve your clinical judgment skills whether you’re a resident or an experienced clinician.
  • Carry these pocket-sized pearls with you for quick reference.

Color Atlas of Internal Medicine


By (author): Richard P. Usatine, Gary Ferenchick, Mindy Ann Smith, Jr., E. J. Mayeux, Heidi Chumley

2,000 illustrations enable fast and accurate visual diagnosis of more than 200 internal medicine conditions

5-STAR DOODY’S REVIEW!

”The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine is in the same vein as The Color Atlas of Family Medicine, by many of the same authors, which was published in 2009 and updated in 2013. In my review of the 2009 version, I noted, ‘This is what a modern textbook should be. It is concise yet comprehensive in the breadth of topics and, as the title suggests, robust with color photographs of extraordinarily good quality.’ That statement stands for this book as well — this is what a modern textbook should be. Reiterating my thoughts from 2009, ‘By far, this is one of the best, most useful textbooks I have seen in a very long time. It is a must for the library of every primary care physician.”
–5 Stars–Doody’s Review Service

This beautiful full-color resource delivers everything practicing internists want and need in an atlas. The book features a strong visual approach, the use of introductory cases in all chapters, complete patient management guidance through concise synoptic text, and the inclusion of evidence grades for diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine utilizes a consistent chapter organization that includes:

  • Patient Story
  • Epidemiology
  • Etiology/Pathophysiology
  • Diagnosis
  • Differential Diagnosis
  • Management
  • Prognosis
  • Follow Up
  • Patient Education

The Color Atlas of Internal Medicine is enhanced by an unsurpassed collection of more than 2,000 high-quality clinical, morphologic, laboratory, and radiological images that represent the signs of the disorders you will most often encounter in everyday practice.

Chamberlain’s Symptoms and Signs in Clinical Medicine: An Introduction to Medical Diagnosis


By (author): Andrew R Houghton, David Gray

A classic text, Chamberlain’s Symptoms and Signs in Clinical Medicine has been providing students and professionals with a detailed and well-illustrated account of the symptoms and signs of diseases affecting all the body systems since the first edition published in 1936. Now completely rewritten by a new team of authors selected for their experience and reputation in writing quality publications in their specialist fields, the 13th edition brings the title into line with current teaching and practice.

One of the key challenges of writing a textbook of diagnostic medicine is to balance the “bottom up” approach of constructing a differential diagnosis from individual clinical findings, and the “top down” approach of learning the key features pertaining to a particular diagnosis. The 13th edition of Chamberlain’s Symptoms and Signs in Clinical Medicine integrates both approaches into a coherent working framework that will assist the reader in preparing for academic and professional examinations, and in everyday practice.

Presented in full colour and illustrated with relevant images, this book provides a thorough lesson in diagnostic medicine, ensuring the reader is fully prepared to deal with the challenging process of differential diagnosis through a thorough knowledge of the central features of the conditions that they are likely to encounter.

Key features:

  • Teaches the reader how to diagnose correctly through assessment of symptoms and signs while simultaneously recalling all key features of a given condition
  • Full colour and generously illustrated
  • Conforms with the core competencies required for the foundation years
  • Includes bullet point lists and tip boxes
  • Chapters conclude with a summary of key points for easy revision
  • Written and edited by a highly experienced team of specialists
  • Companion website
