Rheumatology Orthopaedics and Trauma at a Glance 2nd Edition PDF
19.4 MB PDF
This is the second edition of a book specially designed for clinical students who are doing their rheumatology, orthopaedics and trauma attachments. It is one of a very successful ‘ At a Glance ’ series which gives you, the student, the minimum information you need to pass your exams. It is short and very visual, so it should work well as a fast revision text too. It is based on the 8 week course taught at the Oxford Medical School by the two authors.
However, it should also be very useful for GP trainees who have such a huge range of subjects to cover, and so need essential information on each subject in a quick and easily digestible form.
Each chapter is one page of diagrams combined with one page of text. We have tried to cover the basic science (including anatomy and physiology) right through to practical procedures such as how to examine a joint in a systematic way which will warm the heart of an examiner.
The three subjects rheumatology, orthopaedics and trauma complement each other really well. If you are still a little shy with patients and want to build up your competence and confidence, then the rheumatology ward is for you. The patients are delightful, the diseases a cornucopia of fascinating physical signs, the staff are true problem solvers and the treatments are at the cutting edge of modern science, and they work! Orthopaedics is very logical and has big simple operations which transform a patient ’ s quality of life. If you need an adrenaline burst, then the trauma room is for you. There, life – saving decisions have to be taken quickly and boldly. No place for the faint – hearted! This book gives you all you need to know to step boldly into any of these three worlds.
