Main Description
Thoroughly updated for the Fifth Edition, this comprehensive manual covers over 550 signs and symptoms. More than 300 of the most important signs and symptoms are organized alphabetically; each entry includes a description, emergency interventions (where appropriate), history and physical examination, causes, special considerations, and patient counseling. Over 500 illustrations, tables, and flowcharts are included. Appendices describe 250 less familiar signs and symptoms and provide English/Spanish translations of common signs and symptoms. New to this edition: signs and symptoms of emerging diseases, including avian influenza, blast lung injury, and metabolic syndrome; flowcharts that guide practitioners through assessment evaluation; and appendices on common laboratory test values and conducting a patient history.

This information is provided by a service that aggregates data from review sources and other sources that are often consulted by libraries, and readers. The University does not edit this information and merely includes it as a convenience for users. It does not warrant that reviews are accurate. As with any review users should approach reviews critically and where deemed necessary should consult multiple review sources. Any concerns or questions about particular reviews should be directed to the reviewer and/or publisher.
