Book Description:
This book is intended to be a clear and concise reference for physicians and allied health professionals. Its user-friendly format was designed to provide a fast and efficient way to identify important clinical information and to offer practical guidance in patient management. The book is divided into five sections and an appendix, each with emphasis on clinical information. The tremendous success of the previous editions and the enthusiastic comments from numerous colleagues have brought about several positive changes. Each section has been significantly expanded from prior editions, bringing the total number of medical topics covered in this book to more than 1200. 480 new illustrations, tables, and boxes have been added to this edition to enhance recollection of clinically important facts. The expedited claims submission and reimbursement ICD-10CM codes are included in all the topics. Section I describes in detail 900 medical disorders. Thirty-five new topics have been added to the 2018 edition. Each medical topic in this section is arranged alphabetically, and the material in each topic is presented in outline format for ease of retrieval. Topics with an accompanying algorithm are identified with an algorithm symbol (ALG). Similarly, if topics also have a Patient Teaching Guide (PTG) available online, this has been noted. Throughout the text, key quickaccess information is consistently highlighted, clinical photographs are used to further illustrate selected medical conditions, and relevant ICD-10CM codes are listed. Most references focus on current peer-reviewed journal articles rather than outdated textbooks and old review articles. Evidence-based medicine data have been added to relevant topics. Topics in Section I use the following structured approach: 1. Basic Information (Definition, Synonyms, ICD-10CM Codes, Epidemiology & Demographics, Physical Findings & Clinical Presentation, Etiology) 2. Diagnosis (Differential Diagnosis, Workup, Laboratory Tests, Imaging Studies) 3. Treatment (Nonpharmacologic Therapy, Acute General Rx, Chronic Rx, Disposition, Referral) 4. Pearls & Considerations (Comments, Suggested Readings) 5. Evidence-Based Data and References Section II includes the differential diagnosis, etiology, and classification of signs and symptoms. This section has been significantly expanded for the 2018 edition with the addition of 64 new topics. It is a practical section that allows the user investigating a physical complaint or abnormal laboratory value to follow a “workup” leading to a diagnosis. The physician can then easily look up the presumptive diagnosis in Section I for the information specific to that illness. Section III includes clinical algorithms to guide and expedite the patient’s workup and therapy. Thirty-three new algorithms have been added for the 2018 edition. Many physicians describe this section as particularly valuable in today’s managed-care environment
