HIGHLY COMMENDED IN THE MEDICINE CATEGORY IN THE BMA 2006 MEDICAL BOOK COMPETITION!

The 11th Edition of this famous medical textbook, first published in 1964, has been extensively rewritten and expanded by a new team of 3 editors and 22 authors who are all active clinicians and experts in their specialist fields.

Macleod's Clinical Examination describes the practical skills every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. Its main purpose is to document and explain how to:

  • talk with a patient
  • take the history from the patient
  • examine a patient
  • formulate your findings into differential diagnoses and rank these in order of probability
  • use investigations to support or refute your differential diagnosis.
  • The book has three sections:

    Section One details the principles of history taking, general examination and the external features of disease.

    Section Two comprises the systems chapters which are laid out in the same order.
  • A brief introduction setting the scene
  • Definitions and common symptoms
  • The History, what questions to ask and how to follow them up
  • The Clinical Examination, what and how to examine
  • Investigations:
  • those done at the patient's side (near-patient tests)
  • laboratory investigations
  • invasive investigations including X-rays
  • All chapters include sample OSCE stations and summaries of key points emphasising good practice
  • Section Three is entirely new and relates to the patient as a whole; the first outlines the examination of the neonate, preschool and primary school child, while the second covers the approach to the critically ill patient. Both chapters emphasize an integrated and structured approach to these patients.
  • This new edition of Macleod's Clinical Examination is the most comprehensive yet covering aspects of history taking and physical signs in every system including examination of the Critically Ill Patient.
  • It should be of value to:
  • Medical students training to be effective doctors.
  • Established doctors studying for postgraduate examinations including MRCP (UK) PACES.
  • General Practitioners wishing to update their skills in all aspects of clinical examination.
  • Nurse practitioners both in primary and secondary care involved in patient assessment.

    Review:

    Macleod's is an essential part of your medical school kit. You will need this if you are ever going to learn how to percuss someone's lungs, listen for their heart sounds, and then feel like a proper doctor by asking them to say "Ahh" as they stick their tongue out at you. Edinburgh Medics, a Res Medica supplement courtesy of the Royal Medical Society, July 2005 [Macleod's] has lists scattered through the text in little boxes titled "Examination Sequence". Finally someone is telling us how to actually do the examinations we were meant to be practising all year. The book is logically broken down into the different systems, including a separate chapter for neonates and infants. Throughout the book there are tables and diagrams to illustrate the text in addition to the photos. 'MAD' the official journal of the Barts and The London Students' Association The 11th edition of Macleod's Clinical Examination has been well thought out to meet the needs of today's medical student, where contact with patients occurs from the very beginning. It includes relevant pictures, useful boxes highlighting the causes of various diseases and symptoms and clear, concise diagrams. There are snippets of imaging to help the reader familiarise themselves with it and where it can be used...A particularly good learning tool within the book is the patient examples at the end of each examination section. A run through of what to examine in a specific case is given in a step by step format. An easy to read, well laid out book which covers everything that medical students need to know to examine patients. Brighton University Medical Student I recommend all medical students to get hold of this book. It is a brilliant handbook for all students in the clinical part of the study. Medical Student, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim "Macleod covers the basics and common presentations in considerable detail, with maximal use of colourful illustrations.?
