If you want to understand how doctors are taught to think - how so many, how most of them do think - read the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine. It's oddly and deeply moving Now in its eighth edition, it still bulges in the pockets or on the iPhone of every scared house doctor on his or her first night on the ward, giving comfort and reassurance. Not just about what to do or how to do it, but about human compassion. The Week, July 2012 This is a very useful reference book which answers a direct question that a clinician has about general medicine, usually with a patient in mind...the book has to be readable, straight to the point, no waffling, up to date and comprehensive. That is a big ask for a handbook smaller in size than the BNF and roughly the same thickness. Yet astonishingly, it measures up to all these demands and more. It is an excellent reference source, ideal for the desktop for a GP or outpatient clinic and is reasonably mobile. Its layout lends itself very easily to be quickly dipped in; information extracted and move on to deal with the patient and solve their problem. The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book. This book remains the gold standard for a fantastic handbook of medicine and remains like its predecessors, truly outstanding. Highly recommended. Univadis All medical students should own an OHCM...the best tutor you'll ever have. Oxford Medical School Gazette ...a truly indispensable medical gem. Occupational Medicine ...it has not lost any of its fantastic attributes and still remains a top class book...The language is accessible, scholarly yet easy to read and practical and the scope of coverage is amazing, considering the size of the book. Dr Harry Brown This handbook is one I wish I were able to author. It is clearly one of the best with its accurate and comprehensive fund of knowledge and its emphasis on the human aspect, written by compassionate educators. I highly recommend it to all clinicians on both sides of the Atlantic. Vincent F Carr Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences ...well formatted and beautifully presented...what impresses me most...is the attention given arguably to the most agonising and difficult matters in medicine. These are ethical and philosophical ideals...a truly indispensable medical gem. Every doctor should have ready access to this small volume. The Society of Occupational Medicine Even the latest resuscitation coun-cil guidelines made it into this edition, which is impressive seeing as most medical texts are already out of date by the time they are published. What I really love about the OHCM is the intermittent sections of in-telligent prose, reminding us that medicine is not just black and white (or maybe cheese and on-ion). These give us new perspectives on tricky or mundane topics, with inspiration gleaned from disciplines such as mythology, art, poetry, cosmology and philosophy. These sections supplement our education and encourage us to become more holistic in our clinical reasoning, and is quite unique within the general medical text-book market.

Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com (beta)
- Captures the major/significant details about common pathologies
- Very comprehensive in terms of the various pathologies, treatments, signs and symptoms etc.
- "Emergency-section": on the last few pages, it gives you the algorithms for medical emergencies like ACS, PE, anaphylactic shock, etc.
- It is the size of 5x8 photo (so a little bigger than your average size 4x6 photo), so it's very easy to carry!
- Some pathologies contain useful pictures whether it be an X-Ray, a skin lesion, CT scan etc.
- Four page markers for easy bookmarking
- I personally did not find the four bookmarkers very useful. They were more "in the way". But that's just my opinion!
This clinical pocket guide gives you a comprehensive, detailed snapshot (what an oxymoron...) of the different patient presentations a health care professional would encounter. In no ways would this replace your 2000+ page text books, but it is definitely useful to trigger some key points about diseases, syndromes, etc.
The book is also perfectly sized to slip into a white coat pocket (or the pocket of a pair of trousers) if you are on the go. Honestly the Oxford Clinical Handbook has been one of my favorite books to keep on me for the shear scope of information presented in such a compact place.
Lastly, this book has a storytelling element to it which is so unlike US medical books. They tell stories, give medical anecdotes and a real sense of the world at large. I would recommend this book to anyone in medicine and even let students read over it to get a better perspective of medicine.
My only Grudge is that when it initially started, there used to be blank page available opposite to the topic in question where one could jot down his or her own extra bits. By the end of med school one would have created a mine full of info on each page of this classic. Hence my third edition still sits on my desk for it has more info than many Internal Medicine books put together.
There is also a mini edition that is perfect for carrying on rounds. Just make sure you either have great eyes or a pocket magnifier. All of the info is in it, not abridged and those pics and illustarations are just as clear as in this full-sized
