5-0 out of 5 stars important and clinically useful info...
This book is an eye opener! It was a required text as part of my tDPT program and I have used it many times since for other courses and for clinical assistance, too. I've learned far more about signs/symptoms which would indicate systemic problems vs the type of ortho problem the patient was referred to PT for initially. Very helpful text...should be on every PT's shelf.

5-0 out of 5 stars Differential Diagnosis - prescription: must reading
Goodman and Snyder have compiled a very readable text on differential diagnosis. There are numerous illustrations and tables to augment the text. Important concepts are presented several times to reinforce their importance to the reader. This text would be a valuable addition to any physical therapist's library, especially those therapists who routinely receive "evaluate and treat" referrals from nonspecialists.

4-0 out of 5 stars PT
Catherine Goodman provides physical therapists with a valuable reference to be utilized in the differential diagnosis of patients. She has developed easy to follow tables and charts that help the therapist identify alternate sources of pain and dysfunction that should be analyzed when patients don't get better in the usual manner. Well organized and easy to you. A must own for every clinic.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good supplement book for massage therapists
This is a good supplemental book for professional massage therapists and bodyworkers as it lists symptoms that are mimicked by several conditions with the major concentration on musculoskeletal conditions as well as some systemic conditions. Is that back pain or a kidney infection? Learn to tell the difference with this book by being able to ask the client more questions to narrow it down. I would like to have seen it as a thicker, more comprehensive text. It's about 1 inch or more thick. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Pathology residents
This book is great for clinical pathology residents. It is MUCH easier to read than Henry or McClatchey and still contains much of the pertinent information of these reference tomes. Excellent for board review and for rotations, especially the clinical chemistry. Hope they come out with a new edition soon, as the latest is a few years old.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Synopsis of Pathophysiology and Laboratory Tests
The value and limitations of human clinical laboratory testing is very difficult to introduce or summarize. Most texts are over 1100 large fine print pages. This text by authors at Georgetown University and the Scripps Clinic provides a systematic introduction to Hematology, Immunology, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology (including some virology), Endocrinology, Theraputic Drug Monitoring, Toxicology, Tumor Markers, and Nutrition Disorders. Both diagrams provided and helpful tables are surprisingly current considering the 1991 publication date. Many medical professionals will be well served if they understand just what is contained within these covers. ... Read more

Book Description

Up-to-date and challenging, this best-selling text is a practical manual that helps future and current professionals deal with ethical issues that they will confront at the various stages in their development. The authors provide readers with the basis for discovering their own guidelines within the broad limits of professional codes of ethics and divergent theoretical positions. They raise what they consider to be central issues, present a range of diverse views on these issues, discuss their position, and provide readers with many opportunities to refine their own thinking and to actively develop their own position. The authors explore such questions as: What role do the therapist's personal values play in the counseling relationship? What ethical responsibilities and rights do clients and therapists have? What considerations are involved in adapting counseling practice to diverse client populations? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Issues and Ethics: In helping professions
My order never was received, and I got a refund

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Ethics Text on the Market to Date
As a Counselor Educator and Counseling Psychologist, I feel that "Issues and Ethics In the Helping Professions" is one of the most nicely organized and well-written texts on counseling ethics ever written. I cannot think of another text I would choose over it to teach ethics to developing counselors. This text serves as an excellent source for the overview of ethical issues in counseling and related fields, as well as a guide to further reading. Corey, Corey, and Callanan expect readers to become involved in learning to deal with ethical and professional issues most directly influenced by the actual practice of counseling. The authors produce numerous useful examples for thought and discussion as well as well designed activities for the classroom setting. Even an instructor selects another text for her or his ethics course, the student should definitely consider purchasing this text as an ethics resource. This edition has also put more emphasis on the learning needs of School Counselors than past editions, although I hope to see it develop in this arena in the 6th edition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Required or not, read this book!
This book was required in my graduate psychology ethics course, and I found it to be extremely helpful. Covers such topics as confidentiality, multiple relationships, diversity issues, and personal values as they relate to the counseling profession. Extremely helpful were the pre-chapter self-inventories for each topic, which give you a chance to think about what is written after them from your own frame of reference. This book dealt with issues that I had never even considered before, and I consider myself to be fairly well-educated in the subject of counseling psychology. I recommend it to anyone who is in a graduate program, to undergraduates who plan to enter the field, and to anyone currently practicing who was sent out to work with little or no formal ethics training. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Helpful reference
Common Medical Diagnosis is a wonderfully helpful book for members of the medical profession at any level. The clear well written algorithims lead to extensive lists of differential diagnosis allowing the reader to be presented with numerous options. Begining with common signs, symptoms or lab values, the reader is taken through various well annotated steps leading toward the possible diagnosis. Thies is the third edition of this book which has evolved with the times and remains as useful as when it was first published. A must for any medical bookshelf.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Common Medical Diagnosis: An Algorithmic Approach
Common Medical Diagnoses: An Algorithmic Approach is a great reference book for physicians and medical students alike. The book is roughly 220 pages and has 11 categories of disorders with algorithms under each for either common symptoms or abnormal lab values. The algorithms are very easy to follow, uncluttered, and lead you to a list of differential diagnosis. At each branch of the algorithm reference numbers allow you to read commentary. Only the most common medical diagnoses are in the book, requiring you to search other material for any rare ailment. Also, unless a treatment aids in the differentiating process, the book does not give standard treatments. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A little book that stands by itself
This is a little book I've been using since day one at work, and let me say it is simply the most practical reference I had ever bought. It has a very concise overview of the principles underlying any diagnosis, an overview of some critical values, a pathologist incline clasification in the book (more disease oriented), and a super complete list of causes that may provoque the anomalies detected and outlined in this book. All in a minute consultation, really fast and easy to use. Simply very, very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests
I, too, have been using this reference for several years. I consider it to be one of the five most useful medical books on my shelf. This is probably the only book I feel the need to purchase every time there is an updated edition. I strongly recommend it for medical students, residents, midlevel providers and practicing physicians. It is a core reference in medical board review. It may also be of value for nursing staff in the hospital or clinic setting, especially for critical care nurses, or for anyone who is motivated to learn about medical diagnosis. The book is less likely to be useful to patients and their families, due to its highly technical nature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interpretation of Diagnostic Tests
An indispensable guide. Thorough and complete. Very helpful both in determining what tests to order, and how to interpret test results; especially helpful for the less common and more esoteric tests.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most complete, handy reference of lab tests ever written
I have been using this reference for several years. I can't practice medicine without it. I have made many esoteric diagnoses with it. It is extremely helpful whenever I have abnormal lab values, which do not seem to make sense at the time. Other lab references pale in comparison. Not only are abnormal labs explained, but the disease processes as well. I really like the way the book divides the elevated lab value from the decreased lab value, with their respective etiologies. An essential, excellent book! ... Read more

Book Description

Hardbound. The potential adaptation of biomarkers as substitutes for clinical endpoints, or surrogate endpoints, in clinical trials has recently taken on new importance.

This volume summarizes the proceedings of the first international, multi-disciplinary conference held to discuss this important issue. A historical perspective is provided on the use of biomarkers in drug development, as diagnostic and clinical measuring tools, and in some cases their application as surrogate endpoints in diseases such as AIDS, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Also included is a review of concepts, terminology, and examples which provide a background for those who are not familiar with the use of biomarkers in drug development and clinical trials.

There is presently no other publication which gives such a unique insight into the current state of understanding of biomarkers for specific disease areas, and the emerging tools and technologies that may be u ... Read more

Now in an updated second edition wholly rewritten to be made consistent with updated standards of the newly revised APA Ethics Code (2002), Ethics In Plain English: An Illustrative Casebook For Psychologists is a resource especially intended for psychologists. Describing how to apply the principles of the Ethics Code of the American Psychological Association to ethical dilemmas commonly encountered. From issues of privacy and confidentiality, to regulations concerning advertising and public statements, to standards for education, training, research and publication, and much more, Ethics In Plain English breaks down the required expectations in to practical and easily understandible terms. Gray boxes highlight points that go straight to the heart of the matters discussed, such as "Never pay, give gifts to, or compensate a newspaper reporter, radio or TV reporter, Internet journalist, or any other journalist in the print or electronic media in return for an interview endorsing or promoting your work in a news story", "If you review or screen the work of others, resist the temptation to use the newly submitted information for any purpose whatsoever", and "Enough is enough! Do not provide endless therapy if the patient does not need it, is not being helped in some way, or, even worse, is being harmed by continuing to see you (e.g. financially, by fostering overdependence, or some other way)". An absolute must-read for practicing and aspiring psychologists.

I absolutely hate peripheral nerve disorders. That's probably because I'm not good at diagnosing them. But, if I had this book at the start of my training, perhaps things would be different. This book is an absolute gem. It has great illustrations and has complete listings of movements, muscles, nerves, and roots. It has diagrams of the plexuses as well. There is a handy table in the back on most common muscle movements, etc. It's biggest drawback is that it does not fit in a hospital coat's pocket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reliable, pamphlet sized, clinical reference
New edition of a handy clinical reference that has been around for 50 years. Early editions had photos in B&W, color in this version adds nothing. For every muscle there is a photo of a clinical evaluation showing position of the limb etc and the instructions ("The patient tries to flex against resistance"). For each muscle there is listed the spinal segments and periferal nerve. Included are standard sensory maps and plexus diagrams. Fits into your instrument bag or white coat pocket. Worth getting if you see only 5 neuro-muscular problems a year!

5-0 out of 5 stars The single best book for the peripheral nervous system exam
I am a professor of neurology and recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing how to examine the peripheral nervous system. The book shows photographs and brief explanatory text demonstrating how to examine all major muscles. The book also contains diagrams showing the sensory distribution of all major sensory nerves and nerve roots. The book also contains tables showing each muscle, nerve and nerve root supply. In summary, an excellent and inexpensive book on the peripheral nervous system exam.

This book is the best guide to learning and practicing the physical examination of the peripheral nervous system that I have ever encountered.

It is an outstanding resource for students, residents, and attendings in neurology, neurosurgery, internal medicine, and rehabilitation medicine. ... Read more

I find this book very confusing, I am a student starting my 2nd year of radiology and this is the first time this book has been used by my college, and hopefully in the future they will find a better book. One of my assignments for class is to define all the key terms at the beginning of each chapter, and they are a joke. Starting in chapter 3 there are 2 key terms Dose equivalent and Equivalent dose you look up the definition for dose equivalent and after reading and defining the term it says, dose equivalent is now called equivalent dose. I think this is very confusing. I have seen several things like this already in this book and have only made it to chapter 3, I will be crazy by the time I get through this book and feel for anyone else that has to use this book.

Book Description

We all know that doctors accept gifts from drug companies, ranging from pens and coffee mugs to free vacations at luxurious resorts. But as the former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Journal of Medicine reveals in this shocking expose, these innocuous-seeming gifts are just the tip of an iceberg that is distorting the practice of medicine and jeopardizing the health of millions of Americans today.In On the Take, Dr. Jerome Kassirer offers an unsettling look at the pervasive payoffs that physicians take from big drug companies and other medical suppliers, arguing that the billion-dollar onslaught of industry money has deflected many physicians' moral compasses and directly impacted the everyday care we receive from the doctors and institutions we trust most. Underscored by countless chilling untold stories, the book illuminates the financial connections between the wealthy companies that make drugs and the doctors who prescribe them. Kassirer details the shocking extent of these financial enticements and explains how they encourage bias, promote dangerously misleading medical information, raise the cost of medical care, and breed distrust. Among the questionable practices he describes are: the disturbing number of senior academic physicians who have financial arrangements with drug companies; the unregulated "front" organizations that advocate certain drugs; the creation of biased medical education materials by the drug companies themselves; and the use of financially conflicted physicians to write clinical practice guidelines or to testify before the FDA in support of a particular drug. A brilliant diagnosis of an epidemic of greed, On the Take offers insight into how we can cure the medical profession and restore our trust in doctors and hospitals. ... Read more
