On Call: Surgery
On Call Surgery provides essential guidance for the surgical problems that you're likely to see while on call. Inside, you'll find practical, step-by-step information to help you make sound, confident decisions about evaluation and management. On Call Surgery focuses on the clinical problems that are most commonly seen in surgical settings; organized by presenting complaint, rather than by disease, to make evaluation easier; progresses step by step through differential diagnosis, workup, and treatment; devotes particular attention to the special needs of the postoperative patient and to potentially life-threatening situations; and emphasizes surgical problem-solving and decision-making.
