With 50 years of history and now fully revised, this edition provides a comprehensive guide to taking a patient’s history and carrying out clinical examinations effectively to identify key symptoms and signs of disease.
The book covers general principles, relevant history, examination, and investigations for all major body systems. It provides learners with logical initial investigations for each body system and introduces the formulation of a differential diagnosis. Additionally, the book is enhanced with 32 supplementary videos that demonstrate key clinical examination routines described in the book, many of which are new and revised in line with the latest guidance and best practice.
Macleod’s Clinical Examination is focused primarily on the practical skills required by medical students and early career stage clinicians. It explains the physical basis of clinical signs to aid understanding and provides updated text and images to ensure the content is relevant to a diverse readership and patient population. The latest clinical decision-making models are included to aid the learner’s diagnostic reasoning.
This edition also includes enhanced sections on adapting skills to particular situations, including the challenges of remote consultation and infection control. It comes with access to the complete, fully searchable, and downloadable eBook.
Finally, eight new videos produced especially for this edition cover obstetric examination, gynecological examination, assessment of fluid balance, examination of the hand and wrist, examination of the foot and ankle, examination of the neck, examination of the foot in diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, and the timed up and go test.
