This title is 'Highly Commended' in the 2006 British Medical Association Awards! 'an incredibly thorough book which is very well illustrated - a must in a book explaining how to perform examinations' - ("Medical Student Review"). This book will show you how to: talk with a patient; take the history from the patient; examine a patient; formulate your findings into differential diagnoses and rank these in order of probability; and, use investigations to support or refute your differential diagnosis. "Macleod's Clinical Examination" builds on the critical success of the previous edition by describing the practical skills that every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. The book is divided into three sections: a general overview section on history taking and the general examination provides the framework on which to hang the detail, the systematic examination section documents clearly the relevant history, examination and special investigations as well as giving advice on their significance, the final section covers specialised areas and emphasises an integrated and structured approach to these patients. There is a bonus DVD that contains specially-recorded videos demonstrating many of the clinical examination routines as they are described in the main text. This title is written by a team of editors and contributors who are all active clinicians and experts in their specialist fields. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Macleod's is an essential part of your medical school kit. You will need this if you are ever going to learn how to percuss someone's lungs, listen for their heart sounds, and then feel like a proper doctor by asking them to say "Ahh" as they stick their tongue out at you.

[Macleod's] has lists scattered through the text in little boxes titled "Examination Sequence". Finally someone is telling us how to actually do the examinations we were meant to be practising all year. The book is logically broken down into the different systems, including a separate chapter for neonates and infants. Throughout the book there are tables and diagrams to illustrate the text in addition to the photos.
'MAD' the official journal of the Barts and The London Students' Association
The 11th edition of Macleod's Clinical Examination has been well thought out to meet the needs of today's medical student, where contact with patients occurs from the very beginning. It includes relevant pictures, useful boxes highlighting the causes of various diseases and symptoms and clear, concise diagrams. There are snippets of imaging to help the reader familiarise themselves with it and where it can be used...A particularly good learning tool within the book is the patient examples at the end of each examination section. A run through of what to examine in a specific case is given in a step by step format. An easy to read, well laid out book which covers everything that medical students need to know to examine patients.
