This new, mini edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties continues its long tradition of providing a unique resource for medical students and junior doctors, but now even more portable! It is an excellent companion for anyone who would like an introduction to the medical specialties, those who practice across a wide range of specialties, or whose field interacts with many other specialties. It is also ideal for those who simply enjoy broadening their medical knowledge, knowing that they will be equipped for any eventuality on the ward or in the field!
There has been a substantial increase in the number of full-colour images and diagrams, helping the reader to develop their diagnostic skills and guiding them along the best course for management of an unprecedented spectrum of conditions, from acute glaucoma to zoster infection. Best evidence, advances in practice, and guidelines are all fully updated, including the latest BLS, APLS, and ATLS approaches. Furthermore, it gives practical insight into topics such as major incident management, and the assessment of developmental milestones in children. There are also new features throughout the book that help clear the mists from often confusing medical terminology.
In combination with its companion volume, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine (with which there is extensive and expansive cross referencing), the eighth edition should be an essential companion for any medical trainee or practitioner with the spirit of self-improvement and a verve for their practice.

`Review from previous edition Finally the new edition has arrived and in short it's brilliant.' Northwing (Sheffield Medical School Magazine) June 2004
`...what really sets the OHCS apart from your bog standard turgid textbook, is its sheer entertainment value...and ability to keep you reading...did you know for instance that the posh name for hypochondria with somatisation is Briquet's syndrome which is also known as fat file syndrome? Well now you do and you can impress your friends! For less than the price of a slap-up meal out, you too can be the proud owner of the OHCS - a bargain if ever I saw one.' univadis.co.uk
`This bad boy, chummily referred to as the "salt'n'vinegar" does exactly what it says on the packet, delivering all the specialties you will encounter in life as a clinical medical student. ... OHCS is concisely planned and organised, with a fantastic index. The wonderful dangly book-mark bits are there as ever, and OHCS is also usefully cross-referenced with the cheese'n'onion. ... I cannot over-emphasise how helpful this book is during our speciality blocks in 4th and 5th years. Highly recommended.' SURGO, Glasgow University Medical Journal
`... an invaluable quick reference guide, either for as a reminder of a condition or for more detailed facts. ... This is a book that has stood, and will no doubt continue to stand the test of time.' Cambridge Medicine
