Quick Overview
Clinical Methods in Medicine: Clinical Skills and Practices consists of two sections—Section 1: History Taking and Physical Examination (Chapters 1 to 10) concentrates on History Taking and Review of System (Unit I) and Physical Examination (Unit II). I have written this as separate section because in examinations, short cases/spot cases are kept only for general physical examination. Section 2: Systemic Examination (Chapters 11 to 20) and Appendices is written on Systemic Examination (Unit III), which is comprehensive and gives explanation of each abnormal finding and Unit IV on Appendices.
Key Features
• The book is most informative and student-oriented in simple, easy, and understandable language

• Demonstrates most of the clinical signs with illustrations and symptoms are analysed and interpreted properly

• Observes the abnormalities during clinical examinations and their significances have been highlighted briefly in the boxes

• Details the presenting complaints, history, brief general physical examination and systemic examination in each chapter. The most of physical signs are demonstrated either with figure or photograph so that the students can remember what they have seen

• Discusses the simple bedside as well as advanced investigations related to the subject in details at the end of each chapter

• Enables the student to present the case before examiners with confidence because he/she is now well prepared to answer the questions on clinical examination. Efforts have been made to discuss specific clinical disorders related to the system so that students become well-versed with the theoretical and practical aspects of the case

• Diagrams/figures are self-explanatory

• Incorporates illustrations for spotting the diagnosis, therefore, if a student is given a similar case, he/she can make the spot diagnosis easily

• Useful for the students during their ward posting and practical examination, and definitely this book is a clinical boon to the students.

DOODY'S BOOK REVIEW
REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP(Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)

Description

A tremendously experienced clinician and a senior professor in India author this book on the clinical skills all practitioners must master. The first edition was published in 2008.

Purpose

The concept behind the book is that "a student must learn the history taking and master the technique of interpreting and eliciting the clinical signs."

Audience

The audience is students of all levels, undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as experienced physicians.

Features

The chapters are arranged to reflect the thrust toward teaching students the basics, beginning with history taking and including how to interpret the physical findings. Subsequent chapters address the physical examination of individual organ systems and end with a section on putting the pieces together.
The diagrams and photographs are excellent. Numerous tables of must-remember bullet points focus on the important points of the examination. The appendixes are very helpful.

Assessment

This is a well-organized book with exceptionally good graphics for medical students at all levels of experience.
