9780323032315: Mosby's Physical Examination Handbook

MOSBY'S PHYSICAL EXAMINATION HANDBOOK is a concise, full-color pocket-sized companion to Seidel's MOSBY'S GUIDE TO PHYSICAL EXAMINATION, 6th Edition, and is written by the same dynamic author team of two physicians and two nurses with expertise in both pediatrics and adult health. The new edition is beautifully illustrated and has a unique lifespan focus. A distinctive feature of the handbook is its functional use of color type to distinguish examination steps, expected findings, and unexpected findings. It also now includes a handy "What Drugs May Do" chart on the inside back cover outlining physical findings and the commonly used drugs that can cause them.

  • Each clinical chapter continues with a Pediatric Variations table, also coded in three colors for easy reference
  • A Sample Documentation section concludes each chapter to provide a straightforward example of good documentation practice

  • Pages for Clinical and Reference Notes are interspersed throughout the book for personal clinical note-taking
  • All examination photos have been reshot and replaced, giving the handbook a more up-to-date and approachable feel
  • Staying Well boxes are now supplied, providing important tips for patient teaching
