Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Highlighting the medical history as the core art of patient care, this book provides the tools to achieve clinical excellence

• Explores the techniques of patient-centered and doctor-centered interviewing

• Presents the differential diagnosis, interview framework, alarm symptoms, focused questions with likelihood ratios, prognosis, and clinical pearls for each symptom

• Integrates historical data with the epidemiology, prevalence, and prognosis of the most common conditions

A comprehensive and inspiring introduction to the timeless art of history-taking, The Patient History presents the fundamental principles that guide this process and enable health care professionals to establish the differential diagnosis for a given symptom.

FEATURES:

• Offers a patient-centered approach to the medical history by emphasizing symptoms rather than diseases

• Applies principles of evidence-based medicine to the clinical history

• Illustrates the history-taking process through the discussion of 60 common clinical symptoms, such as dizziness, weight loss, dyspnea, chest pain, nausea and vomiting, low back pain, memory loss, and anxiety

• Includes diagnostic approach algorithms to summarize important concepts

• Focuses on actual questions for use in daily practice

• Provides tips for effective interviewing

Format: Paperback
.......... This book is the best book for 2nd and 3rd year students who are interacting with patients for the first time. the hardest part about taking a history is knowing what questions to ask. this book TELLS YOU. It's organized by system and by Chief complaint, each section includes a well thought out DDx, and a list of questions you should ask and what it mean if the patient says yes. it also tells you what physical signs to look for and what lab tests to order. Your presentations and H&Ps will through and you will understand why you ask all those silly questions in the first place.

The best feature of this book for me was that it offered examples of real questions to ask during the medical interview.

The Patient History provides useful advice about how to figure out the differential diagnosis, and how to pick the correct diagnosis. The book includes a lot of tables which may include, for example, a column of symptoms and a column for the differential. If you prefer text to tables, this book may not be ideal: while it contains useful text, the tables include info not in the text. Keep in mind that this is not a pathophysiology textbook, and as such, the chapter on headaches won't include a lot of material about what causes headaches--just how to diagnose different types of headaches. Overall, this book is most useful for medical courses focusing on the diagnostic process.

Great for common complaints. Very quick read and concise. Also has flow charts at the end of every chapter which summarizes diagnostic decision points.

Format: Paperback
Presentation-specific chapter headings guide the reader through dozens of common chief complaints in an organized and methodical (system-based) manner. While initially intimidating, this text has earned its place in my medical bag. It has repeatedly proven just as useful in the clinic as in the classroom...just like any text should, but often fails to achieve. My only request is that the authors extend the portability of this text by providing reference flashcards or possibly a pocket-sized companion text.
