Making speedy and appropriate clinical decisions and then choosing the best course of action is an essential skill for doctors. Exploring initial medical assessment, 100 Cases in Clinical Medicine presents 100 scenarios commonly seen by medical students and junior doctors in the emergency or outpatient department, on the ward, or in the community setting. Each case begins with a succinct summary of the patient's history, examination, and initial investigation. The text includes photographs where relevant and questions on the diagnosis and management of each case. The answers provide a detailed discussion on each topic, with further illustration where appropriate. Most of the cases included are common problems but the book also includes more unusual cases to illustrate specific points and to emphasize that rare things do present. The first 20 cases are arranged by systems; the next 80 are in random order because symptoms such as breathlessness and pain may relate to many different clinical problems in various systems. These true-to-life cases will teach students and junior doctors to recognize important clinical symptoms and signs and to develop the diagnostic and management skills needed for the cases they will encounter on the job.

The New York Times bestselling author of Better and Complications reveals the surprising power of the ordinary checklist We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies—neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. First introduced decades ago by the U.S. Air Force, checklists have enabled pilots to fly aircraft of mind-boggling sophistication. Now innovative checklists are being adopted in hospitals around the world, helping doctors and nurses respond to everything from flu epidemics to avalanches. Even in the immensely complex world of surgery, a simple ninety-second variant has cut the rate of fatalities by more than a third. In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. He explains how checklists actually work to prompt striking and immediate improvements. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds. An intellectual adventure in which lives are lost and saved and one simple idea makes a tremendous difference, The Checklist Manifesto is essential reading for anyone working to get things right.

The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease is packed with clearly stated, up-to-date information on the most effective methods for managing kidney disease. Vegetarian nutrition has been found to wrestle kidney disease down to size, or, in the best-case scenario, stop the progression of this destructive disease in its tracks.When the author, Joan Brookhyser Hogan, first became a dietitian several decades ago, plant proteins were considered inferior to animal proteins, a belief based on the erroneous conclusion that plants contained high levels of certain minerals thought to cause complications in chronic kidney disease. Thanks, however, to ongoing research in the intervening years, this false belief has since been reversed. Vegetarianism has not only become acceptable, it is now considered superior to animal-based diets for the prevention and treatment of chronic kidney disease.This valuable book has a great deal of specific information to assist readers in implementing, or continuing, a plant-based diet that can improve the health of their kidneys. Hogan first outlines the benefits of vegetarianism, followed by chapters on the stages of kidney disease, common problems associated with the disease, and the relationship of this disease to other disorders. An enlightening discussion of the link between kidney health and diet precedes an integrative diet plan, with a final chapter on detailed meal plans and recipes. Along with numerous detailed tables and graphs and case histories sprinkled throughout, The Vegetarian Diet for Kidney Disease includes appendices, resources, and references that serve to round out the guidelines of this relevant book that anyone with chronic kidney disease will find useful, even indispensable.
