Presented in the context of clinical cases this unique resource steps medical students through the most common cardiology problems encountered on the ward and discusses the evidence-based treatments used in practice. This problem-based learning mirrors clinical practice providing a useful clinical approach for students to carry throughout their careers.
Written by Atifur Rahman and Simon O’Connor Problem-based cardiology cases includes considered and wide-ranging coverage of everyday cardiology encounters – from basic bedside issues to controversial and advanced aspects of cardiology. The only local text of its kind is richly referenced with Australian guidelines while at the same time incorporates a global element by summarising up-to-date literature and landmark clinical trials from around the world.
Talley and O’Connor’s Clinical Examination addresses the core principles and clinical skills that underpin diagnosis for safe, effective medical practice.
The text takes an evidence-based, patient-centric approach to conducting a clinical examination. In Volume 1, readers follow a logical framework ordered by body system, covering history taking, clinical examination and correlation between physical signs and disease for each system. Volume 2 focuses on medical specialties.
Originally written by Nicholas J Talley and Simon O’Connor during their registrar years, this book is uniquely targeted to students undertaking their MD or MBBS and is fully updated with the latest clinical data, including specially commissioned research.
