Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery, second edition, teaches students a logical step-by-step diagnostic approach to common patient presentations. This approach mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards, challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking,examination, investigation, management). In tackling these questions, students understand how to critically analyse information and learn to integrate their existing knowledge to a real-life scenario from start to finish. Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (e.g. chest pain). By starting with a symptom, mirroring real life settings, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems - for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology - at the same time. All the majorpresenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies. This book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards. Ideal for those starting out in clinical medicine and an ideal refresher for those revising for OSCEs and finals.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is welcome break to many of the other medical/surgical text books, a light, entertaining read but still packed with lots of useful tips and information. Unlike other books it gets you to start thinking, it has an excellent layout with a large number of cases accompanying eachchapter to help put your knowledge into practice. The viva questions highlight extra important and interesting facts, helping to expand knowledge without merely repeating what can be found in other text books. A saving grace when revision starts to drag - I could pick up this book, work through achapter or just dip into a couple of cases and would always learn something new or be lead to think about something in a different way. This book is actually fun to read - can't say that about many others!!" --Amazon
