'Highly Commended' in the 2006 British Medical Association Awards!
"an incredibly thorough book which is very well illustrated - a must in a book explaining how to perform examinations!" (Medical Student Review)
This book will show you how to: . talk with a patient . take the history from the patient . examine a patient . formulate your findings into differential diagnoses and rank these in order of probability . use investigations to support or refute your differential diagnosis
Macleod's Clinical Examination builds on the critical success of the previous edition by describing the practical skills that every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. The book is divided into three sections: (i) a general overview section on history taking and the general examination provides the framework on which to hang the detail, (ii) the systematic examination section documents clearly the relevant history, examination and special investigations as well as giving advice on their significance, (iii) the final section covers specialised areas and emphasises an integrated and structured approach to these patients. A bonus DVD contains specially-recorded videos demonstrating many of the clinical examination routines as they are described in the main text. Written by a team of editors and contributors who are all active clinicians and experts in their specialist fields.

"The book is extremely well laid out with each chapter covering a different system and a basic review of the relevant anatomy prior to exploring symptoms associated with pathology to that system and the physical examination. Althought it may look a little intimidating at first, this book manages to deliver crucial information ( especially for OSPE revision) without losing the simplicity which makes it so readable."
