Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2004 - Medical - 239 pages

Prepared by residents, chief residents, and fellows at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook is a practical guide to inpatient and outpatient rheumatology consultations. It focuses on how to approach rheumatological problems, how to perform a musculoskeletal examination and arthrocentesis, and which medications are appropriate, including dosage and recommended monitoring.

The book covers symptoms and diseases and acute and chronic problems with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington Manual® of Medical Therapeutics. Content includes overviews of the major rheumatic diseases and sections on crystalline arthritis, seronegative spondyloarthropathies, vasculitis, infectious causes of arthritis, and miscellaneous rheumatology consultations.

This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
