About this title


The new 4th Edition of this one-of-a-kind, humanistic text has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most current standards of physical diagnosis. Its core philosophy approaches the patient as a person suffering from disease, rather than an entity in which disease manifests. All chapters have been reviewed and revised, with an all-new chapter on nutrition that shows readers how to apply nutritional principles to the practice of medicine. New color images replace many old black-and-white images, and more than 200 NEW color photographs of pathological conditions enhance this Edition. A FREE CD-ROM includes a video demonstration of the complete physical examination of a man and the breast and pelvic examinations of a woman. Cross-referencing between the book and CD-ROM create a comprehensive clinical reference package designed to help readers identify basic pathophysiology and provide holistic patient care.
