Bates' Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, Volume 1

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2003 - Medical - 862 pages

A classic in assessment, this Eighth Edition revision still provides the best foundation for learning and performing physical examination techniques and history taking. Features a clean, straightforward approach that retains the two-column format placing examination procedures and proper techniques on the left, and common abnormalities and possible interpretations on the right. Its highly visual four-color design includes 400 new pieces of art and formerly featured black and white photos into color. Also in this edition are four completely revised chapters including pediatrics rewritten by specialist Peter G. Szilaygi, MD. A CD-ROM, Heart Sounds, is available in the back of the book and a separate book of case studies for further study.
