Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an internist starting out, I found this book invaluable to my patient practice. It is well organized and concise. It gives detailed and well illustrated instructions on the various procedures. It is divided into :
**Dermatology procedures (suture selection, bx, skin lesions, nail, abscess, acne, keloids, cryo etc)
**Anesthesia (local, topical, peripheral nerve blocks, trigger points)
**ENT
**Cardiovascular/REspiratory (art line, central line, Swan Ganz, intubation, pacing, PFT etc.)
**Urology (catherization
**Gyn
**OB
**pediatrics
**GI
**ortho (splinting, cast, dislocations, joint injections)
**Misc (abx prophylaxis, informed concent, LP etc)
Each procedure section is further broken down into clinical indications, contrditions, equipment needed, procedure process, tecnique, complication and CPT/billing code. It is a comprehensive book that contains more than you need to know--which is always good. Well worth the expense.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to boost your office procedure skills
and cut down on referrals for minor procedures. I found the
book helpful with short and concise explinations, diagrams,
and addresses of manufactures of products medtioned. The
billing codes are also helpful when training billing staff.
Very comprehensive and well worth the cost!

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must for anyone doing procedures. It lists the materials you need for a procedure, how to do it, the care after, and the ICD-9 codes. The 2006 edition even gives you patient handouts, so you have it all. Do not waste your time on cheap knock-offs; this is the book to have. It was originally written by John Pfenninger, who created the National Procedures Institute, where doctors can take courses to brush up their procedures. I have the first edition, which is now in 3 pieces due to chronic use. I will get the new (2006) version from the publisher, since it is only $207 from them and includes: 2 DVD's, the website, the pocketbook and free shipping.

As the title states, this book is written for primary care physicians. It covers 144 procedures, from dealing with Ingrown Toenails to Bone Marrow Aspiration. It deals with indications and counter indications, patient pre and post education, the equipment needed and sources of supply, the procedures themselves and even the billing codes. While this book is written for use by medical professionals, it is understandable by laymen with access to a good medical dictionary. I find it helpful when I want to talk intelligently to medical personnel.

For the Prepper: These procedures assume you have extensive medical training, and a fully equipped medical facility. if you have them they will already have this book or one like it. If you don't have them, you will do much better with something like "Where There is no Doctor" or "Ditch Medicine"
