4.0 out of 5 stars Good review material January 10, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this to review for PANRE. Having been in a surgical sub-specialty for the last 11 years I needed a good overview in general medicine. The layout is clear & the information is up-to-date. It is a good reference for those who need to review their long-forgotten general medicine as it is relatively concise (compared to, say, Harrison's). I have been able to cover a chapter in a day or two. They have a nice "Essentials of Diagnosis" that prefaces certain sections, ie. stuff that will kill your patient & you need to know! If I pass, it will have been an excellent investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Pharmacists October 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a pharmacist, we are many times put into the position of having to know the same disease state guidelines and treatment therapies as physicians. Finding that information can be frustrating if you don't keep a good library of resources. This Lang resource is what you need. Quick and concise is what I would characterize this as. Having Dipiro's, Koda Kimble and Goodmans and Gillmans for pharmacotherapy/therapeutics, all of which are good in their own way, this book in some ways outdoes them.

Don't get me wrong, you won't find the in depth MOA's, pathways etc of drugs in this resource. What you will find are the basics of disease states, treatments parameters and guidelines. For example, Chapter 10, Heart Disease has nearly 50 different disease states included. Some topics such as STEMI, NSTEMI and Chronic Stable Angina are covered more indepth than say Tricuspid Stenosis, but being able to find this type of information in one source quick and easy is more than worth the price of this book.

The quality of the paper is good, highlighting doesn't really leak through to the other side of the paper, but can be seen slightly from the other side. It is soft cover and heavy. Very good book and a must for heath professionals of all disciplines. Be sure to get the latest version though, guidelines are updated periodically so keep current.

My husband is a retired physician and has always relied on this particular book for reference. His was quite out of date so he was thrilled to be able to get this current edition. We use it frequently as a reference tool. Excellent book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, concise June 10, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not dumbed down, hits the imporant point of diagnosis and management in a concise manner. Lots of topics covered in the text, making it useful for indepth reading but definitely too big of a book to lug around the hospital.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's alright, don't waste your money/time on it though.
Goes into unnecessary detail, not bad for supplementation but I wouldn't waste my time on it. Pharmacology by Edmund and Mayhew does a better job at tying everything together.
