    Book Description

    The essential emergency medicine reference! Covers the gamut of emergency medicine practice in brief, clinically focused chapters. New to this edition are chapters on bioterroism and weapons of mass destruction, pharmacology of antimicrobials, antifungals, and antivirals, principles of drug interactions, endocarditis, and abdominal and pelvic pain in the non-pregnant patient. Pharmacologic considerations, tables of vital differential diagnoses, and observation criteria throughout are new features reflecting developments in this dynamic specialty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Emergency Medicine Text
    As an Emergency medicine resident, the book is the centerpiece of my library. The new edition differs from the previous in the addition of two color text. Using two colors enables them to make the tables more readable. The text is longer than the previous edition. Each chapter is divided up into a short intro/description of normal, followed by etiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, treatment, then special considerations. The writing, as in the previous editions is concise and to the point. This text is priceless because it takes all the concepts and presents them in a clinically relevant way. This is very useful as a general review text, as well as a hands on while working text. Should be in all ED's as well as in all personal libraries of physicians who see patients in the emergency setting.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Downward Spiral on Autopilot
    *Emergency Medicine, A Comprehensive Study Guide* has long been a well-regarded standard emergency text, useful in day-to-day practice as well as for board preparation. This new edition has advanced the enlightened 'evidence-based recommendations' for changes in practice patterns, however, the lack of editorial control has resulted in a book packed with conflicting information. Each chapter is written by a different consultant, and unfortunately not all of them are up on this concept... we therefore get a series of conflicting statements when there is overlap in topics, and there is no attempt to reconcile this variability. Admittedly, opinions in much of medicine do vary; but outright conflict within a few pages in a standard text without discussion does harm to credibility.

    Further loss of editorial control is also evident on a close read. It is apparent that a spell-checker was used for proof-reading (substitutions of the nature of "week" for "weak" abound) and in some areas clinical formulae have been mis-stated -- example: calculation of effective osmolarity, pg. 1341 (though correct elsewhere in the book). The index seems somewhat disorganized, with references to isolated appearance of a word (example: see *first* reference listing to "hyperglycemia"... certainly not the definitive source in the text). This problem is not isolated.

    The book has expanded by approximately 500 pages over the 4th edition, totalling more than 2000 pages. Its size makes it unwieldly to read or carry; it should have been separated into 2 volumes. Even with that expansion, much useful information is missing. Though descriptions of EKG abnormalities in advanced electrolyte disturbance are adequately described, it certainly would have been an informational asset to actually include a picture of such characteristic tracings. Dermatology is similarly poorly pictured -- there are only 8 pages of color illustrations in the text, with nearly 2 pages wasted on 1)technique of foreign body removal (not needed in color) 2)a color demonstration of SPECT data -- well outside the range of information needed for the E.M. specialist, and not definitive, besides. Even worse, the illustrations interspersed in the dermatology section are simply black and white copies of the color text -- providing only suboptimal repetition.

    Bottom line: the *Comprehensive Study Guide* has been, and remains, a valuable text for an overview of the practice of emergency medicine; but either keep your 4th edition, or wait for the 6th.

    4-0 out of 5 stars This book is an excellent learning tool!
    This book is a great textbook of emergency medicine, and I've chosen it over others simply because it's comprehensive without the useless drivel. Each section includes the necessary anatomy and pathophysiological considerations for the respective disoders. The subset of conditions are mentioned with just enough facts to understand the morbidity to treat it. The pictures, diagrams, algorithmic flow-charts, and drug regimens are a nice compliment, however, most of your clinical experience is going to come from interships and residency, so to assume this book is all you'll need to get by in EM is crazy. I still think it's the best out there to read before putting your mind to work.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I'm Afraid to Give it a Bad Review......
    Do you know the true meaning of the words "Study Guide?" Well, what that means is that you must be able to achieve a passing score on the American Board of Emergency Medicine's Certifying Exam by studying nothing more than this book. And I believe it, since I have passed it twice studying basically nothing more than this book. While it lacks the broad panache of the "other" two volume tome, the idea that you can pass the certifying exam by memorizing this huge book is, well, it's sexy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mandatory (This is a Review of the Companion Handbook)
    Owning this book is simply mandatory--unless, of course, you are certain than neither you nor any loved one will ever need to be admitted to an emergency room. While I am by no means a physician, this thick little paperback has allowed me to make an informed assessment of the treatment that family members have received, and to make it easier for doctors and nurses to explain things to me. Aimed (as you can see from the other reviews here for the massive study guide for which this book is a companion) totally for physicians, it is assumed that the reader is familiar with medical terminology. But it isn't that bad, really--acronyms are usually defined when they are first used in each section, and I have found that a run-of-the-mill collegiate dictionary suffices for most of the anatomic and diagnostic terms. A Physician's Desk Reference would be most helpful for acquainting oneself with the drugs, dosages and regimens referred to in the book, and it doesn't hurt to have someone in the medical field you can query about procedures and policies. Basically, I see no reason why such information needs to be confined to those in the profession, and believe everyone should be aware of the mechanics of trauma treatment. Also, I have simply found it to be fascinating reading (the incredibly succinct description of the stages of child/adolescent development--from the point of view of the assessing ED physician--says more in two pages than all the oceans of ink that have been spilled--in newspapers and magazines--on the topic of children in our society). ...

    Book Description

    Since the DSM-IV® was published in 1994, we’ve seen many advances in our knowledge of psychiatric illness.

Updated information is included about the associated features, culture, age, and gender features, prevalence, course, and familial pattern of mental disorders.

    Stay current with important updates to the DSM-IV-TR®:

    • Benefit from new research into Schizophrenia, Asperger’s Disorder, and other conditions
    • Utilize additional information about the epidemiology and other facets of DSM conditions
    • Update ICD-9-CM codes implemented since 1994 (including Conduct Disorder, Dementia, Somatoform Disorders)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Informative, but don't buy it if you have the original DSM-4
    The text-revised version is virtually identical to the 1994 version of the DSM-IV and not worth buying if you have the 1994 version. Along with the DSM-IV, the DSM-IV Text Revised version is, however, an informative book that provides good introductory information, especially in the "Diagnostic Features" section, about a wide variety of mental disorders. A problem of the manual, in my opinion, is its use of a categorical classification system while ignoring the dimensional nature of psychological phenomena.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Postpartum Disorders Reorganized
    I am pleased that postpartum psychosis has been dropped as a separate entry in the DSM IV TR. Postpartum is now correctly classified as a General Medical Condition. These changes call for the diagnostician to classify an afflicted mother by a disorder for which there is information more readily available, such as schizophrenia. In the case of a schizophrenic disorder, the mother is no more a danger to others (including the infant, I would infer) than those in the general population (p. 304). Therefore, mental health care providers have no basis to keep a mother separated from her infant any more than any normal parent. The manual is a useful tool for the afflicted to use for self-discovery, especially when there is mistrust, denial, anger, and agitation toward mental health care providers. The manual can literally put the afflicted and the provider "on the same page." It is well worth the investment in this book, a highlighter marker, and a therapy session to mark up and discuss the book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I disagree about laypeople reading it...
    Most laypeople with a college education can understand a good portion of this book, in my opinion, especially the areas that note what symptoms are needed to classify for each disorder. I do know that easier books are out there, but I don't discourage others from purchasing it, especially if they have a friend, family member, colleague, etc. that has been or has not yet been diagnosed with a mental disorder. This is the "bible" psychiatrists use to diagnose and I am glad it is available to the public.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's the Mainstay
    I am a psychologist and I have been practicing for about 30 years. I remember the little DSM II. It was the size of the companion small book that can be purchased. The DSM has a history. There was actually a time when psychologists and psychiatrists were considering 2 different texts. Reading the reviewers was interesting as this is my tool to differentiate what my clients present. It is continually being improved and that is the focus of TR. There are subtle differences and clarifications. This book is the basis of identifying the specifics of what we are working with. The DSM IV was a collaborative effort to acurately represent international, cultural, and biological differences. My clients don't care but some don't know that an adjustment disorder of mood is different than dysthymia or depression which is again different from Bi Polar disorder. I probably wouldn't read it if I didn't do this kind of work. Yet it may be important to people with diagnosed illness. It can assist the capable reader in being an informed consumer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference, good bathroom reading. Lousy storyline.
    It is a good book for attempting to nail down and quantify the disorders given in a bottom line way, just like any good reference would. Although, as another reviewer wrote, its not perfect, but its the best thing we've got. Use it more as a general reference and not strictly as any kind of instruction manual. I would tend to take it in more as recreational reading if it included maybe some case studies or whatnot. But being that much of it is divided into short chunks, it makes an excellent addition to any powder room... ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must for professionals in disability law and medicine
    The 5th Edition is the Rosetta Stone for evaluating permanent impairment. It is invaluable in workers' compensation, where many states, provinces and several countries either mandate its use or treat this work as an authorativie source of impairment evaluation. It may also come to have utility in ADA cases, especially with its emphasis on activities of daily living, and as a predicate to demonstrating the significance or insignificance of an impairment's effect on major life activities after Toyota vs Williams. The vision chapter represents the AMA's first major, published revision to the science and knowledge of eye impairments since the early 1900's.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Charts
    Although my copy came with 10 pages of errata sheets stuck in the front of it (presumably cured in the 5th version), I still got a lot out of reading through this book. The descriptions of impairment are de regeur reading for coming up with convincing settlement demands for soft tissue injuries. Someone's shoulder hurts? How do you say they have lost 20% of their upper body use as a result? Why not 90% of one finger, 50% of one hand, and 80% of one arm? Multiple impairments like these can be descriptively segmented to more fully elaborate what a patient is feeling, and how they are limited in daily activities. Both the plaintiff bar and the insurance community are well-served by this book. As for the medical accuracy of it, I'll take the AMA's word for it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best pathology book for students!
    This is THE textbook of pathology for students of medicine and dentistry!
    Pros? Well, it has all the 4 C's...
    1) Clear language... minimal verbosity, straight to the point
    2) Comprehensive ... it has all the facts the student needs to know for exams as well as future clinical practice
    3) Colour pictures ... not the black and white stuff but full colours to add more morphological meaning to the texts
    4) Cast ... I'm sure everyone wants to read a book written by authoritative pathologists?

    Cons?
    1) Cumbersome ... students just initiated into the world of pathology may find it tough to plough through the thousand over pages of text (like I did while in med school), but believe me, if you stick by it, you'll enjoy the fruits of your labour in due time.
    2) Some of the facts and tumour classifications may be a little out of date (latest edition published in 1999) but if you're a student, don't brood over it. Tutors would probably highlight major updates during your pathology course.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great book for those going into pathology!
    If you are an ordinary medical student like myself this book is too detailed and has everything there is to know about the subject. It is a great book for those who have a basic understanding of pathology, but for those who don't good luck reading it for the first time. Some of the comments(jokes) in the book are also not needed. I believe that "Basic Pathology" 6th. edition from the same authors is a lot easier to understand with better and more colorful diagrams.

    1-0 out of 5 stars thick but not good
    The book is written in a very dense matter and extremely unfriendly to reading but worst of all it has very few histological images so while the description is there you often times do not see it and so you don't learn it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars excellent
    If you are looking at this text, then you should already know that Robbins is synonymous with pathology. There is nothing like sitting down on a Saturday night to brush up your pathology with this text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Med Students - MAKE TIME FOR THIS BOOK
    If you're able to plan enough ahead of time, read this book early and often. GREAT book - gives a good overview (yes, overview) without being too concise or too lengthy - appropriate level for Med Students, esp 2nd year. Its great to combine with Wheater's Basic Histopatholgy.

    This is an excellent, full-color photographic atlas of dermatology. The text is not complete enough to diagnose and treat, but if you are looking for an excellent collection of photographs with brief descriptions to peak your interest this is a wonderful resource. Lots of images of less common disorders and diseases of the skin (Lamellar ichthyosis, pemphigus vulgaris, EB's), and also common ailments (acne, rosacea, cancer, etc.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT REFERENCE BOOK
    I have used this book throughout 2 years of medical school and it is one of the best dermatology references I have come across.It has also been a quick review for the the path seen with derm since the pictures are so clear and give a good representation of the path. An easy book to skim through before boards as well.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great overview of Clinical Dermatology
    I enjoyed reading this book as a layperson, not having gone to medical school. I have a number of minor skin problems and this book allowed me to differentiate the insignificant ones from the ones I need to pay attention to. I think that this book should be in every household, because a person or parent should know what skin affliction(s) they have and how serious they are before they rush off to the doctor. One thing that should have been elaborated on more is the sub-section on The Nails as Clues to Multiorgan Disease. There are only a few pages of examples of this, yet there are dozens of correlations between abnormal fingernails and systemic disease. The book only gives blantant and graphic examples of serious nail problems and then gives the possible associated underlying disease. It should be expanded to include more "soft sign" nail problems to help doctors make educated guesses about what tests to run.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WELL-RESEARCHED, WELL-DOCUMENTED
    Shinning like a king's armour, the colours and synopses of this atlas made a thorough analysis of skin diseases.
    Any medical student or practioner who needs a dermatological companion would find a reliable one in this atlas. The uncountable pictures, which featured in this new edition are both illustrative and descriptive. Everything about the book indicates sound research and documentation, (on the part of its authors). It is a superlative tool for both doctors and students: the type of book many people would like to keep as CD-ROMs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Out Damned Spot!
    Was it, perhaps, the abundant clear color photos? Was it, by chance, the in-depth and easy to understand text? Or could it have been the complete indexing of every skin disease known to mankind, from Acne to Zoster sine zoster, that compelled me to snatch this wonderful red book from the shelf and declare, "Hey, this is one super-cool book!"

    If I were a dermatologist or a general practitioner, I'd want this atlas in my reference library. Ah...but alas, I'm but a simple lawyer trying to find out how to get rid of a case of... Dare I say more? Out damned spot! Out!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This needs to be read by all women everywhere!
    This is probably the most life changing book I've ever read. I wish in school as young girls we had known exactly what our body does at menstruation and ovulation. It's amazing.

    Not only can this be used for TTC - it can be used to learn how to better utilize birth control methods. Being aware of your basal body temp & cervical fluid you actually know when you are ovulating and when your period is due. Like clockwork!

    In addition, having your temps stay high instead of dipping down as your period approaches is indicative of pregnancy achievement. In my case this happened, (preg test to confirm) but unfortunately I wasn't able to hold the pregnancy and my temps started to go downwards -- making my period a couple of days late. If I hadn't have been charting, I would've never known I was pregnant, and just chalked it up to a late period.

    This book is good for all women - empowering them to learn more about their amazing bodies!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing book for EVERY woman
    After announcing to a close friend of mine who was eight months pregnant that I was about to begin to try to have a baby, I was given a weathered copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility. I direct a women's health program at a community hospital and was amazed at what I DIDN'T know about my body after reading this book. Toni Weschler is a gifted writer. A public health practitioner's dream, she is extremely clear, distilling scientific facts to manageable pieces of information. She dispels the myth that charting your fertility, traditionally referred to as "Natural Family Planning", is a method used only by a select few who choose natural methods of birth control because of religious beliefs. Moreover, she emphasizes the connection between women's empowerment and knowledge of normal biological processes that are often medicalized to the point of leaving many women mystified. I would go so far as to say this should be required reading for all young women entering high school! (NOTE: I am now in my first trimester as a result of the information provided in the pages of this book. I am very grateful!)

    I highly recommend this book and method for getting pregnant. I am 39 and had been trying to get pregnant for six months using an ovulation predictor kit. We already have a 2 year old daughter that was conceived the first month we tried, so I was very discouraged that we were not pregnant yet. A friend of mine recommended this book, and I thought it was worth a shot! I found the book a very easy read. I read the sections relevant to getting pregnant in one night (there are also sections on birth control, menopause, etc). I began charting immediately. I did not go crazy with charting-I just recorded my temp each day and checked the other 2 signs (cervical mucus and cervical position) starting about a week before I knew I was going to ovulate. I got pregnant the second month!! The book is super informative about all aspects of a woman's reproductive body. A great read even if you just want to get to know what's going on with your body every month. Hope this review helps!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK
    Wow!! First of all - I was quite ignorant about my own body until I read this book. I will share this book with my children. I also purchased the software that goes along with it - and IT WORKED SUCCESSFULLY!! I am expecting my first child Dec. 04 !! I did "practice" charting for one month and then the first month that we tried for real - well it happened!! A friend of mine and my cousin both used this book and it helped them as well. I highly suggest this book to anyone who wants to conceive. It really helps you to understand your body. It has some medical terms - but explains them in detail. I also suggest the software - it made it MUCH easier for me!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars You HAVE to read this book
    I bought this book for two reasons, to get pregnant after 35 & due to everyone else's review of this book. Now, I'm a believer. If you're a woman and think you know about your body, you don't until you read this book. My whole life I thought there was something wrong with me, and now I know I was normal all along. I wish I would have had this guidance as a teenager and just discovering the intricacies of my body. Just knowing the basics of your body and what's normal & what's not, will give you a confidence you can't imagine. If you have teenage daughters, buy this book and read it together. It could save years of doubt, confusion and low-esteem. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Standard by which All Obstetrics Texts are measured
    There is perhaps no medical specialty that has more misconceptions, "wives tales" and variation than Obstetrics.Williams Obstetrics is more exhaustively comprehensive than any other text for general Obstetrics.Williams has long prided itself on presenting "evidence-based medicine" - separating the wives tales from medical knowledge obtained from published studies from peer-reviewed journals.Perhaps there are those who prefer their Obstetrics with a little voodoo.For those who want to know the most up-to-date scientifically based Obstetrics, Williams is your book!

Manydoctors feel the less patients know from firsthand sources (such as thisbook), the better it is. But for me, Williams Obstretrics answered manyquestions not only regarding my losses but also in my uncomplicatedpregnancies. OBGYNs don't need to be told about this book; they swear byit.

    This is an extraordinary book to prepare the board. Simple,concise, to the point. I upgraded from the second edition and it was really worth the upgrade. New chapters and new presentation with key concepts and case discussion worth reading. All time companion book !!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent first textbook in Anaesthetics.
    This book is well-presented, easy to read and, with the case scenarios presented at the end of each chapter, puts some of the most important clinical considerations in anaesthetics into a truly practical way. It is relatively small too, so that it is portable and can be referenced easily. All in all, an excellent book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for anesthesia
    My absolute favorite anesthesia textbook. It is concise and very readable. A pure joy when one doesn't feel like trodding through Miller.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginners and board preparation
    I have used this book during my residency along with Paul G. Barash (clinical anesthesiolgy). This book has value no matter what stage of your residency you are at. Each and every line is important. What you get out of it in your first year is different from what you get out of it in your final year. It is very helpful for the boards . You can get tired of reading massive chapters in Miller or Barash, so instead you can do the same chapter from Morgan and get concise information. Thus you won't feel daunted when it comes time to take on the larger detailed version in Miller!! A must buy during your first year of residency, along with the massachusets hand book.

    ...for it is easy to use, written very clearly and it has wonderful pictures.
    From the moment it was recommeded to me as a student to now, I have used it just about everyday.
    Just as an example, Habif has a wonderful chapter on Acne that allows the primary care provider to manage this condition from its mildest to the more complicated forms. He describes the condition and the treatment options giving us a great resource for care.

It includes how to live with a diagnosis, a disease, and deal with the side-effects of a cure. It not only provides precise medical information, but includes psychological and 'daily-life' information as well. As it is designed for nurses, the vocabulary is technical, and the illustrations are graphic; if you really want to understand what the doctors just told you, this is the place to go. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Knowledge About Cerebrospinal Fluid Fistula
    We have got the textbook and we thought that the book our main anesthesiology resource.

    Recently we have a case of cerebrospinal fluid-cutaneous fistula following spinal anesthesia used for indirect inguinal hernia repair. But we couldn't see any comment in the textbook about the management of cerebrospinal fluid fistula from inthratecal space to skin due to postdural puncture for purpose of spinal (intrathecal) anesthesia.

    Cutaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistula are known to occur rarely under spinal puncture during spinal anesthesia, and CSF leaks via that fistula. This complication is often self-limiting but sometimes needed some treatment procedures such as intravenous fluid restruction, patient prone position, strecth dressing of wound, epidural injection of autologous blood patche or fibrin glue, or uncommonly use of CSF drainage system.

    We think that if this complication and its' management is included in new edition of the textbook it will be better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars In Depth Pediatric Reference
    When I was on my PA Peds rotation, I often consulted this great reference in the medical library. Now, that I have my own book, I know its value. There is no other Pediatrics book out there that is better than this one. Don't waste your money on less expensive books like Current Pediatrics which doesn't cover half as many topics as Nelson. Also, for a great little pocket books, try Harriet Lane and Current Clinical Strategies Pediatrics 5 Minute Review.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Reference Work
    The Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics covers just about
    every possible subfield in childrens medicin. As
    a lot of different authors have contributed, the style
    tends to differ a lot between different sections and
    chapters.

    Some of the chapters, such as the one describing the
    immune system, are very technical and only aimed at
    the well-versed in microbiology, whereas others, like
    the acutely ill child, are very descriptive and make
    a compelling read.

    NToP is a particularly useful reference work for
    those who want to read a good description on a
    particular pathology or disorder. It is not written
    or intended as a diagnostic aid, but rather as
    a starter to bring the reader up to speed in a
    particular subject after the diagnosis has been made.

    It is also not intended as "the last word" on anything.
    For instance, although the pediatric cardiology section is
    extensive, you will need rather more to discuss a complicated
    case with the pediatric cardiologist at the local university
    hospital.

    Sadly, some topics are barely touched. Look for sliding
    hernia or oesophagitis, for example, and you will be
    disappointed.

    This book is a useful investment both for medical
    practicioners and the loving parents to which it is
    dedicated.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great features, further improvement possible
    I don't think I need to explain how great the "Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics" is, so I focus on the features as software.

    This product is based on a java applet and for Windows and Macintosh. For each of the chapter, about 30 review questions are available in a multiple-choice format. The answer is not only with alphabetical one, but also with a concise explanation with a link to the textbook. I find this feature very helpful. I haven't checked "Nelson Review of Pediatrics, 2nd ed., Behrman,R.E.CW.B.Saunders , 2000 263p", but the publisher says that this feature is based on this book.

    Update service is available. Every time when you launch the program, you are asked whether it checks the updates. Full access to NelsonPediatrics.com for further information is also available, after you sign up on the web site. After all, the support service is awesome.

    However, there are some things you should know as windows users, which is why I put 4 stars. First, you are required to use Netscape or Internet Explorer as your default browser. The browser must be new enough, too. Second, you must insert the CD-ROM every time you use this program, since it doesn't install all the files to your hard disk unlike the previous edition. Third, if you are using localized Windows other than English, you may have to replace some files. The procedure is as follows, quoted from the mail I got immediately from the support center:

    >The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that we distribute with the Nelson
    >product is not the internationalized version. It could be that one of
    >the following may address the issue (FIRST BACKUP THE JRE DIRECTORY IN
    >NELSON'S INSTALL DIRECTORY):
    >1. Download and install the international version of the JRE 1.2.2 (the
    >one we use for Nelson) from
    >http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.2/jre/download-windows.html. Then
    >copy the installed JRE directory and all contents to the Nelson

    This textbook is the gold standard of pediatric books. I used mine all through medical school and still use it in my practice. I highly recommend this text to students, residents and physcians. The thought provoking text and excellent illustrations make this a must have book. I couldn't practice without mine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Textbook of Pediatrics
    No medical text can ever be comprehensive, or completely up to date. The science of medicine advances so quickly that books are outdated the day they are published.

    Nonetheless, "Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics" comes as close as possible. Along with another other classic pediatric text, "Rudolph's Pediatrics," Nelson's represents the best of pediatric medicine in America. Every pediatrician has a favorite, but Nelson's is the gold standard.

    Nelson's is particularly strong in pediatric cardiology and immunology. For the latest in infectious disease, see the "Red Book" published by the American Academy of Pediatrics. For neonatology, developmental pediatrics, and the surgical sub-specialties, consult specialty books in those fields. For congenital malformations and syndromes, "Smiths's" (by Jones!) is a good place to start. For the latest in oncology, your best bet (after your local trusted oncologist) is to search Medline or the Web, but watch out for quackery. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A surgical Bible
    I was slightly disappointed by the fact that this book is considerably thinner than the previous edition -- we're losing something here. I found the Liver chapter a bit vague sometimes (e.g. on the precise indications for resection and/or transplantation for liver cancer), and chapters on fundamental topics such as Preoperative Care are rich in concepts but lacking in practical information. However, the Sabiston Textbook of Surgery, while somewhat less majestic, is still king -- some chapters, like Soft Tissue Sarcomas and Vascular Trauma (written by none less than Brennan and Mattox respectively) are outstanding. The chapters on Management of Acute Trauma, Surgery of Morbid Obesity, Cerebrovascular Disease and Gynecology, to name just a few, also deserve much praise. This tome is a must for all medical students and surgical interns/residents.

    As a nurse practitioner student, things were much easier once I discovered this reference. As a new graduate nurse practitioner, I KNOW I couldn't survive without this reference. With the focus on evidence-based practice, a provider MUST follow true, tested, approved guidelines to stay up-to-date and free of trouble! Worth every dime and then some.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What you need to understand surgery in a concise way
    Surgery, like everything in medicine, has a language of it's own. And when you, as a medical student, get to the surgical wards, you'll need a book to understand what is going on around you. Written in a pleasant way, it is divided in three practical sections: Surgery's general principles, general surgery and surgical specialities, just like in med school.
    They give you a refreshment on basic sciences concepts critical for understanding surgical pathologies and then they tell you essentials of diagnosis and treatment of such pathologies.
    Therefore, I recommend the book for medical students and General Practitioners who will need to answer the "Should I call the surgeon ? "question. Not very good descriptions on surgical procedures, and I would like it to have better illustrations, but I think it's worth the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Reading!
    This book provides a great review in all subjects of surgery in a concise way. The reading is easy and pleasant. Although, the last edition is from 1994, it's been still up-to-date. Great purchase!

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
    A well written and edited book. Contains material that is quite focussed and essential, specially for those preparing for examinations. Although written more than seven years back it contains facts that some of the very popular books mentioned only lately in their recent editions.

    That it is not coming out with another edition is a serious drawback. For this reason it is fast loosing the edge it has over other books.

    Other shortcoming is lack of colored illustrations and photographs.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not a textbook of surgery
    I think this book might be helpful for those people who are looking for a book that gives you the surgical point of view of the disease, it doesn't focus exclusively on the surgical procedures and treatment, but it takes its time to explain a little more about the pathophysiology, symptoms and signs etc., of the illness,it's more like a book to start with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent text
    I found the information quite thorough. It is written in a user-friendly way, easy to understand. I bought this book because it was listed as a reference for the chiropractic practice part 2 exam. This book helped me with the locations of the trigger points. Sometimes the chiro boards like to ask questions on trigger points. However, Leonardi's book: National Board of Chiropractic Part II Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers and National Board of Chiropractic Part III Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations are excellent for board exam preparation. These three books are needed for the part II and Part III of the boards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate in drug-free pain relief!
    As a Clinical Massage Therapist at a hospital, I use these books almost daily. In fact, I just ordered my second set. . . The first is so threadbare it's barely usable. ANYTIME I have a patient with a pain that I can't immediately identify I grab my Travell's. This set is an absolute BIBLE for anyone in the health care industry. Travell and Simons have esentially written "The Instruction Manual" for elliminating myofascial pain by going to it's source!

    Janet Travell, MD and David Simons, MD were absolute pioneers when it came to myofascial pain and it's treatment. What makes these books even more amazing is that they were written a full quarter of a century before doctors even acknowledged that myofascial pain actually exsisted. . . What makes them interesting is that, in this, the most current edition, they have re-evaluated about 65% of the sites that before would only be considered for cortizone or saline injection and now recommend these areas be attended to by a Massage Therapist. They even go into strong detail as to stroke, direction and stretching. There are still plenty of sites that they recommend for injection, but only in a last resort situation.

    The chapters are laid out in an incredibly easy to understand manner, though that's not even the beauty of the book's design. If you know the name of the muscle in question, you simply look inside the front cover; the muscle are all listed with their coresponding page numbers next to them. Don't know the name or not sure which muscle it is in the group? No problem. You again open the front cover and there, in 5th grade simplicity, are charts for all the areas covered in the book. Flip to the area in question and look through the diagrams. When you find (in the super well drawn diagrams) the pain you are trying to treat, you are given, not only several treatment plans, but etiology and most likely direct verve aggravation associated with the pain.

    My only problem with the set is that the book are not as well bound as maybe they could be for the price. You'll notice, however, that it didn't have enough of an impact on me to give it any less that a perfect score.

    I STRONGLY recommend this book for ANY health care practitioner that deals with pain control and alleviation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Tour de Force
    Janet Travell MD and David Simons MD spent a lifetime studying the patterns and treatment of muscular and soft tissue pain in patients. It is a specialty in itself, and provides an amazingly detailed review of anatomy. These books are the bible on the subject written by the "mother" and "father" of the specialty. There will hardly be a day in the professional life of a busy primary care practitioner, rheumatologist, orthopedist, neurologist, physiatrist or physical therapist when these books will not be used. The more one knows of this field, the more revelations one gets into those difficult chronic pain patients. The etiology and muscular complexity of the huge field of "tension headache" syndromes now become clear. With these books you will have the tools to diagnose and treat effectively (usually dramatically) the entire spectrum of myofascial pain from head to toe, muscle by muscle. Why do so few physicians know of this vital area of medicine?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Text
    The Trigger Point Manual is a two volume set detailing the current state of knowledge of trigger points and myofascial pain for both the upper body, vol. 1, and the lower extremities, vol. 2. It also contains fascinating analysis of how muscles work in different situations, offering insight into aspects of human movement. These wonderful books are essential reading for all manual therapists.

    5-0 out of 5 stars All MD's,DDS's,PT's,DO's&DC's Should Study & Use This Book!
    Literally millions of patients in pain could be helped if they and their health care professionals understood myofascial trigger points and referred pain, the concepts so thoroughly documented in the "Trigger Point Manual" by Travell and Simons. For example, over 80 percent of patients with TMJ disorder (TMD) experience myofascial pain. With a knowledgeable provider diagnosing, plus utilizing the patient's own self-help abilities for a home- care program, billions of dollars could be saved in unnecessary medications and procedures. Travell and Simons have given health care professionals a path to walk. This book should be required reading in all institutions of learning. -- This text refers to the Hardcover edition. ...
