Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002 - Medical - 508 pages
Thoroughly revised and updated for its Third Edition, this Spiral(R) Manual is a practical quick-reference guide to the diagnosis and treatment of all gastrointestinal problems--from common complaints such as intestinal gas to life-threatening diseases such as cancer and AIDS. Chapters written in an easy-to-scan outline format cover the approach to the patient, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, nutrition, gastrointestinal emergencies, and specific symptoms and diseases. This edition's completely reworked chapters on reflux disease, irritable bowel syndrome, peptic ulcer, inflammatory bowel disease, and viral hepatitis reflect significant recent changes in drugs and treatment modalities. Drug information has been expanded throughout the manual.
