The third edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis is available to purchase in a pack with the fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery, offering complimentary content from both handbooks at a discounted price. Now revised for its third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Diagnosis provides a concise and practical summary of the reasoning processes behind clear and confident diagnosis. The handbook is set out systematically with symptoms and signs through each specialty, and includes a detailed description of the basis of logical evidence-based differential diagnosis. The third edition has been updated with clearer diagrams and brand new images. Including rarer diagnoses alongside the common conditions, and vital information about longer-term management alongside the initial treatments, this handbook will ensure your excellence and confidence no matter what signs and symptoms your patient presents with. Providing practical help when dealing with problems outside your area of expertise or with unforeseen situations, you can be sure that this handbook will be your perfect companion to clear and confident diagnoses throughout your medical career. The bestselling Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery has been thoroughly revised for the fourth edition, to include brand new chapters on Paediatric Orthopaedics and Common Surgical Procedures, as well as new presentations, illustrations, and new anatomy and emergency indexes to aid quick reference. It is an invaluable tool for junior surgical trainees, medical students, nursing, paramedical, and rehabilitation staff. The fourth edition covers the assessment and preparation of the patient, anaesthesia and critical care, inflammation, wound healing and infection, and the key components of general surgical practice, as well as chapters on other surgical specialties, including plastic, paediatric, and orthopaedic surgery. There are step-by-step descriptions of common operative surgical techniques, practical hints and procedures, and information on signs, symptoms, and rarities. Emergency presentations are clearly identified for rapid reference, and investigations and management plans are set out in a clear and easy-to-follow way. Surgically relevant anatomy and physiology has been expanded for each area, quick reference symbols ensure the reader is guided to key facts, and there is an increased focus on evidence-based practice with key references throughout. A cut above the rest, the fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Surgery is the essential guide to clinical surgery and the surgical specialities.

Review from previous edition Review from previous edition It is pitched perfectly for the student studying for undergraduate clinical exams and for the general practice specialist training knowledge test. It would also serve as a helpful aide memoir for doctors dealing with a patient presenting with a problem outside their speciality. * British Journal of Hospital Medicine *
The idea is brilliant - take symptoms, signs, and examination findings, and suggest the most likely diagnosis. Then discuss how best to confirm it...once again OUP have come up trumps with another fine addition to the handbook family. * Dr Jeremy Sagar, Univadis *
Whether you use its easy layout and concise size as a quick reference on wards or as a key text on those differential diagnosis questions in your private study, this book aims to help you come to terms with one of the hardest skills known to medical students. * Steve Knight, Year 4 Intercalating Student, *
...not only does this book provide clearly headed pages of presenting complaints together with lists of their possible differentials - its layout is specifically designed in such a way to make you consistently mimic that used by clinicians on wards everyday...The usefulness of this book to your clinical years, combined with your OHCM, shouldn't be underestimated * Steve Knight, Fourth Year Intercalating student, *
a beneficial addition to any medical ward either at the nurses' station or in the doctors' office...would recommend this book for consultation at ward level. * AS Fitzpatrick, Marchall Riley *
This is a nice memory aid for new clinicians as well as a refresher for clinicians who have been in the practice of medicine for a long time. * Doody's Notes *
Review from previous edition Review from previous edition In short it's a little surgical gem. * Glasgow University Medical Journal *
[It] perfectly summarises surgery in all its glory... a concise and appropriate text for students and doctors alike... the 'Practical Hints and Procedures' is pure genius... I highly recommend this handbook for anyone embarking on a surgical rotation. * GKT Surgical Society Website June 2003 *
This book... is destined to enter the hearts, mind and pockets of medical students, housemen, junior surgical trainees and a myriad of other healthcare professionals... forms part of the essential kit for anyone who employs the art and science of surgery to improve the quality of life of their patients. * GKT Surgical Society Website June 2003 *
It goes the extra mile to provide enough up-to-date information to satisfy even the most hair-splitting consultant. I found it an indespensable assistant on the wards. * Priya Sastry *
A must for all foundation year doctors and SHOs in surgery ...This book has an excellent layout * Dr Amjad Choudry *
The third edition...represents an excellent consensus of specialists and surgical registrars attuned to what is happening and what is new. * Occupational Medicine *
...succeeds as an efficient study companion...perfect for last-minute cramming. * ICSM Gazette *
...provides a succinct surgical guide for junior residents and medical students...the book is a needed addition to the surgical literature. * Doody's Notes *
I found it friendly and easy to find any source of information in a systematic order. I would recommend it for junior doctors and final year medical students. * BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended *
