Evidence-Based Physical Diagnosis is an up-to-date, one-of-a-kind guide to the clinical significance of the physical examination, with emphasis on a critical review of the accuracy of traditional physical signs. Unique "Diagnostic Accuracy" tables compare physical signs to contemporary diagnostic tools (such as clinical imaging and laboratory testing), and identify which traditional findings are accurate and thus relevant to today's clinicians. The book's easy-to-use outline format concisely summarizes each physical sign's historical origin, definition, pathophysiology, and clinical significance. In addition, more than 2,200 references make it a valuable aid and authoritative reference for clinicians at all levels of practice.
