1 Review
The Fifth Edition of this classic text has been thoroughly revised. It focuses on teaching the clinical diagnostic skills of history-taking and physical examination--skills that are essential when choosing cost-effective high-technology laboratory tests and evaluating test results. The book begins with a complete checklist for history-taking, and proceeds through physical inspection, palpation, auscultation, heart sounds, and murmurs. The highly praised question-and-answer format engages the reader's attention and enables students to test themselves by covering the answers. More than 150 photographs, diagrams, and other illustrations demonstrate key examination techniques and concepts. Important terms are printed in boldface and defined in a glossary.
