Essentials of Clinical Surgery 2nd edition pdf
Medical students and doctors in training are expected to travel to different hospitals and community health centers as part of their education. Many books are too large to carry around, but the information they contain is often vital for the fundamental understanding of disease processes. The Essentials of Clinical Surgery 2nd edition series is designed to provide portable, pocket-sized companions for larger texts like our own Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine. They are most useful for clinical practice, whether in the hospital or the community and for exam revision.
Essentials of Clinical Surgery 2nd edition book in the series have the same helpful features:
simple line drawings
emergency and other boxes
tables that summarise causes and clinical characteristics of the disease
examination questions and answers.
These Essentials of Clinical Surgery 2nd edition contain core material for quick revision, easy reference, and practical management. The modern format makes them easy to read, providing an indispensable ‘pocket essential.’
This book is written primarily as a useful reference/aide-mémoire for medical students, foundation doctors and surgical trainees that can be carried in the pocket or on a PDA file while they are ‘on the job’ treating surgical patients. The emphasis of the book is on the general surgical take for those on call, providing a knowledge base for conditions that frequently occur in the emergency setting. The principles of the standard public surgical operations are given along with practical procedures used in everyday surgical practice. The Essentials of Clinical Surgery 2nd edition has been revised and updated using the same principles as the first.
