Synopsis:
Students in numerous countries rely on this well-established medical text. Like preceding editions, Clinical Examination (fourth edition) provides students with clear and sensible explanations of clinical methods.

Building from an introductory to an advanced level, and retaining popular key elements earlier editions, the book has been completely revised and updated. One important new feature is the annotated reference, which provides the beginning of an evidence-based approach to physical examination techniques. Other additions include: more material on listening to patients, new photographs of important clinical signs, more information on the examination of joints and on principles of examination for soft tissue injuries, and added information on the neurological examination.

All chapters have been peer reviewed by experts in the field, and every effort taken to create an up-to-date, accurate and relevant text for medical students and trainee clinicians.
