|About the Book|
The new 4th Edition of this one-of-a-kind, humanistic text has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most current standards of physical diagnosis. Its core philosophy approaches the patient as a person suffering from disease, rather than an entity in which disease manifests. All chapters have been reviewed and revised, with an all-new chapter on nutrition that shows readers how to apply nutritional principles to the practice of medicine. New color images replace many old black-and-white images, and more than 200 NEW color photographs of pathological conditions enhance this Edition. A FREE CD-ROM includes a video demonstration of the complete physical examination of a man and the breast and pelvic examinations of a woman. Cross-referencing between the book and CD-ROM create a comprehensive clinical reference package designed to help readers identify basic pathophysiology and provide holistic patient care.The smart way to study!Elsevier titles with STUDENT CONSULT will help you master difficult concepts and study more efficiently in print and online!
