The quick reference guide for your family's symptoms and how to deal with them. Packed with 150 charts that enable the reader to identify the probable causes of common symptoms and how to choose the most appropriate course of action, the ACP Home Medical Adviser is a guide to symptoms for the entire family. The charts help distinguish between symptoms of a minor illness and those that may indicate a more serious condition. Guidance includes whether a condition can be treated at home, if and when to seek medical advice and if an over-the-counter medicine will help. There is practical advice on healthy living, a discussion of medical care throughout life, and an overview of common screening and diagnostic medical tests, as well practical instructions for life-saving first aid techniques and information on medicines.
