Differential diagnosis in clinical medicine

Every book is meant to bring concept to those who care to read them. Books on medical subjects are vast in number and every author strives to fill a need that he himself has felt. Some authors achieve this objective, but others, their intentions though are genuine meander into a dreary desert of words. Prof R Deenadayalan MD (Gen Med) has made a serious attempt in trying to help a hard pressed medical student by presenting him with a work based on two decades of experience superimposed on those of his teachers.

Thus, a simple but a very useful glossary of differential diagnosis of clinical signs and entities has been created. Though this cannot replace a formal textbook, it will serve as a ready reckoner to the beleaguered medical student who labors under an ever increasing load of information and changing priorities.

oxford handbook of clinical medicine

As medicine becomes more and more specialized, and moves further and further from the general physician, becoming increasingly subspecialized, it can be difficult to know where we fi t in to the general scheme of things. What ties a public health physician to a neurosurgeon? Why does a dermatologist require the same early
training as a gastroenterologist? What makes an academic nephrologist similar to general practitioner? To answer these questions we need to go back to the definition of a physician.

The word physician comes from the Greek physica, or natural science, and the Latin physicus, or one who undertakes the study of nature. A physician therefore is one who has studied nature and natural sciences, although the word has been adapted to mean one who has studied healing and medicine. We can think also about the word medicine, originally from the Latin stem med, to think or reflect on. A medical person, or medicus, originally meant someone who knew the best course of action for a disease, having spent time thinking or refl ecting on the problem in front of them.

pharmacology in 7 days for medical students

Pharmacology is a volatile subject with a ‘very short half-life’. One can cram 20 side effects of a single drug but when one is required to memorise the side effects of 150 drugs, everything gets jumbled up. The same holds true for the lists of therapeutic uses and drug classifi cations that pharmacology students have to memorise and reproduce in the exam setting. No wonder that many medical students fail in pharmacology not because they haven’t ‘studied’ the subject but simply because they haven’t ‘retained’ the subject matter. This book is written to help solve a very specific
and practical problem: how to reproduce the pharmacology subject matter in the exam setting.

First, instead of dividing the syllabus in the conventional way, i.e. ‘systems’, it is being divided into classifi cations, mechanisms of action, therapeutic uses, side effects,etc. In the current exam format, it is very unlikely that someone would ask to write an ‘essay’ on a given drug; instead, very specifi c questions are asked, like ‘give the thera-
peutic uses of drug “A”’, or ‘enumerate the side effects of drug “B”’, etc.

Essential Concepts in Anatomy and Pathology for Undergraduate Revision

Anatomy and pathology are of major importance in our training as doctors. Yet the amount of knowledge to be gained in these two areas can seem overwhelming.

The purpose of Essential Concepts in Anatomy and Pathology for Undergraduate Revision is to help medical students to make the most efficient use of their revision time. This book contains the core basics that medical students need to grasp, and presents this information in the form of lists of key points for ease of reading and remembering.

This book draws on my experience both as a medical student and as an intern at various teaching hospitals. It is my aim to familiarise medical students in their pre-clinical years with the clinically relevant background information and knowledge of anatomy and pathology that are commonly encountered in end-of-semester exams. This book will help them to gain excellent results in those exams and prepare them for going on the wards. This is the book that I wish I had been able to use at the start of medical school.

MRCP-the only notes you will ever need

These notes intended to target those who are appearing in MRCP exam. The idea behind it was
collecting the most commonly tested topics and facts in the exam for my personal revision. The data
has been collected from many sources.

This book was not prepared to be the primary studying source but it can help you after finishing your
primary reading by arranging the thoughts in your mind and making every topic as short as possible by
highlighting the most important points about it. You may use it just before going through your favorite
MCQs book or internet site.

A friend of mine appeared in part one for couple of times, he reached to a conclusion and gave me a
valuable advice that said ‘when preparing for MRCP, study MRCP! Don’t study medicine!’ this book
helps you to study MRCP rather than studying medicine. But at the end, you have to be a good
physician otherwise MRCP will be a less valuable recognition, this is why I would advise to study
medicine before you study MRCP and for sure before you say that you are a member of the Royal
College you have to be upto the expectations.

150 practice ecgs : interpretation and review

Your problem as a student of electrocardiography is that you may not get enough
practice to become good at it. The best way to get experience is to read ECGs from the
hospital’s daily accumulation, commit your interpretation to paper, then look over the
shoulder of the experienced person who is reading those ECGs for the record.

Unfortunately, most students and residents do not have that opportunity. Training
programs are placing an ever-increasing clinical load on their faculties. One-on-one
teaching experiences are hard to program. It is the rare institution that provides most of
its students and residents headed for primary care practice with an adequate ECG
reading experience.

This book is intended as an ECG curriculum that emphasizes practice. My goal is to
have you reading ECGs as quickly as possible. The introductory chapters are shorter
than those found in the usual beginner’s manual, but there is plenty there to get you
started. Where you want additional depth, refer to an encyclopedic text in the library.

thorough clinical grounding, the general medical texts andthe core clinical journals.
