9780443074042: Macleod's Clinical Examination: With STUDENT CONSULT Online Access


The 11 th Edition of this famous medical textbook, first published in 1964, has been extensively rewritten and expanded by a new team of 3 editors and 22 authors who are all active clinicians and experts in their specialist fields.

Macleod's Clinical Examination describes the practical skills every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. Its main purpose is to document and explain 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.
  • The book has three sections:

    Section One details the principles of history taking, general examination and the external features of disease.

    Section Two comprises the systems chapters which are laid out in the same order.
  • A brief introduction setting the scene
  • Definitions and common symptoms
  • The History, what questions to ask and how to follow them up
  • The Clinical Examination, what and how to examine
  • Investigations:
  • those done at the patient's side (near-patient tests)
  • laboratory investigations
  • invasive investigations including X-rays
  • All chapters include sample OSCE stations and summaries of key points emphasising good practice
  • Section Three is entirely new and relates to the patient as a whole; the first outlines the examination of the neonate, preschool and primary school child, while the second covers the approach to the critically ill patient. Both chapters emphasize an integrated and structured approach to these patients.
  • This new edition of Macleod's Clinical Examination is the most comprehensive yet covering aspects of history taking and physical signs in every system including examination of the Critically Ill Patient.
  • It should be of value to:
  • Medical students training to be effective doctors.
  • Established doctors studying for postgraduate examinations including MRCP (UK) PACES.
  • General Practitioners wishing to update their skills in all aspects of clinical examination.
  • Nurse practitioners both in primary and secondary care involved in patient assessment.
