Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Medical Handbooks series are available together in this great value pack. Extensively revised and fully updated, this third edition of the Oxford Handbook of Rheumatology provides everything you need to understand the wide range of rheumatic conditions. Including the latest guidelines and the most up-to-date information, this is the indispensible guide for students, trainees, consultant rheumatologists, and everyone dealing with patients with musculoskeletal disease. Rheumatic conditions are common in both general and hospital practice; a primary feature of many multi-system illnesses, and in the context of injury, age-related change, and psychological distress. This handbook provides practical advice, guidance, and key clinical facts to help you provide the best care for your patients. Practically structured, the handbook focuses first on presenting symptoms, and then considers key diseases, emergencies, and rare diseases in more detail, finishing with a comprehensive account of assessment, guidelines, and treatment options including the latest advances in biological therapy.
It provides practical guidelines on the management and diagnosis of patients with acute and chronic musculoskeletal disease. Colour plates and line drawings are present throughout along with tables of key information. Taking a clinical, evidence-based approach, written by experts, and presented in a clear, practical, bullet-point style for rapid reference, this handbook will be your constant companion and a joy to use. The Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma offers junior doctors, medical students, and all those with an interest in the field the practical and up-to-date information needed for clinical practice. It presents the essentials of orthopaedics and trauma in a concise and user-friendly style for use with patients, in the operating room, and in tutorials. As well as covering the basic principles and conditions of both adult and paediatric orthopaedics and trauma, it also contains a comprehensive overview of anatomy and surgery. Helpful illustrations and diagrams guide the reader, aiding the understanding of movements and anatomical relationships, which are of particular importance in establishing a diagnosis.
Information is extensively referenced with further reading materials, providing a structured basis in for all levels of training. Emergency topics are highlighted for quick access and the appendix provides information on common drugs in orthopaedics and trauma, as well as fracture diagrams. The book is clearly laid out, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages are included for the reader, so that notes, observations, and local protocols can be included, thereby individualising the Handbook. Written by trainees and qualified surgeons, the Oxford Handbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma is an accessible and informative tool for all junior doctors and students in the field.
