That said, this book is riddled with errors. You have to be careful what you read, because there are typos on nearly every page.
The questions at the end of each chapter are moderately useful in asking about what you just read. However, the question blocks at the end of the book are atrociously bad. Many of the questions test your knowledge of concepts not presented in the book, so I suppose you can approach them as another learning opportunity, but as a question format they're not very helpful.
Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias that have been associated with hypersympathetic activity are most likely to arise from:
A. Right sided sympathetic fibers originating from T1-T4
B. Left sided sympathetic fibers originating from T2-T5
C. Left vagus nerve
(D and E are obviously wrong)
If you committed to memory the chart on page 104 (as you are supposed to for boards, see below) you will remember that the spinal cord level associated with the heart is T1-T5. There are 2 answer choices that fit that answer, and choice C is wrong because the vagus does parasympathetics. So you may be inclined to put B since the heart is, after all, on the left side. Well, you would be wrong, according to Savarese, as he explains in the answer explanation:
"Fibers originating on the right innervate the right heart and sinoatrial (SA) node...Left sided sympathetic fibers innervate the AV node." So the answer is A.
Very cute, but why didn't he include that information in the original text? He doesn't. Many of the questions end up this way, making for a frustrating exercise.Read more ›
This book IS NOT FOR basic understanding and initial learning of OMT fundamentals or techniques; however, it is perfect for review. Certain topics may need to be supplemented with course notes, Foundations, or another resource (ex: Crainal); but overall the book serves its purpose of putting the important information all in one book with an easy to read format.
A few questions are keyed incorrectly, so look that up when you get this book. Otherwise it's great!
