Book Reviews: 

Overview
Synopsis Expand / Collapse
This classic textbook sets out clearly and concise how symptoms can be evaluated and relevant physical signs can be elicited. This defines the functional skills that should be learned and built by any clinician to advance diagnosis practices and management techniques and plans. This Thirteenth Edition includes more than 500 scientific images and diagrams to explain the text, with additional subjects included to make the book much more detailed.

This 13th Edition consists of four sections:

The taking of history and the general examination.
System check that covers symptoms and signs.
Examination in different cases like the seriously ill and babies & children.
How to get an OSCE card.
The specially recorded videos that demonstrate many of the clinical examination routines described in the main text are included on the Student Consult website.

The book begins with a general overview section on taking history and the general review that provides the framework to hang the detail on.

The systematic analysis section specifically records the related history, study, and special inquiries, as well as offering recommendations on their importance.

The third section addresses particular condition analysis and provides an organized and standardized approach to these cases.

A final section explains how to demonstrate the methods taught in an OSCE novel.

Macleod's is closely related to his sister book, Davidson's Principles & Medicine Practice, which complements the knowledge found in that text.

Included with direct internet access to Patient Consult and ancillary videos showing main procedures of clinical review according to the model set out in the book.

For different cases there are two new chapters concerning examination:

The faint-hearted

The Fevered Adult

A new section specifically explains how to explain the methods taught in an OSCE book and in other formative and summative tests.

More than 50 additional text boxes illustrate the evidence-base for the test methods being explored.

An advisory board of teachers, junior physicians, and members from six countries' nursing, medical, health care, and scientific sectors consulted in depth and objectively assessed the whole book.

The text was extensively updated with emphasis on scientifically unexplained conditions in the chapter History Taking and extending the diabetes mellitus scope in the chapter of the Endocrine System.

Clinical review videos of qualified practitioners are combined with the online text and execute many of the test procedures mentioned in the book with an accompanying statement by the editor, Professor Colin Robertson

Two recent videos demonstrate how to execute the Glasgow Coma Scale in clinical settings, showing the right strategies and even common mistakes in using the GCS.
