This comprehensive textbook of physical examination, history taking, and health assessment is distinguished by its unique author team of two physicians and two nurses. Their blend of expertise results in an unusually broad, multidisciplinary perspective...a unique emphasis on differential diagnosis...and an uncommonly compassionate, patient-centered approach. What's more, their expertise in both adult health and pediatrics fosters an especially thorough emphasis on lifespan considerations. The book also features one of the most extensive art programs found in any physical examination text--particularly with regard to abnormalities. This 5th Edition features increased coverage of evidence-based practice and complementary and alternative therapies--as well as enhanced illustrations and a state-of-the-art ancillary collection.
