English | Published: 2007 | ISBN: 313142141X, 1588905519 | PDF | 1056 pages | 75 MB
A pragmatic approach to differential diagnosis gives rapid, reliable answers to these questions: Which diseases are likely? What causes them? What are the typical characteristics of these disorders? Do they correspond with the symptoms in question? How can the preliminary diagnosis be confirmed? Siegenthaler's new "Differential Diagnosis in Internal Medicine" guides the reader through the challenges of differential diagnosis across the spectrum of internal medicine. It offers a practice-orientated learning, helping you to: identify and understand key symptoms; consider the whole patient in selecting possible diseases; evaluate, exclude or confirm possible diagnoses; and, make the correct diagnosis using an appropriate diagnostic procedure. Professor Walter Siegenthaler brings decades of international experience in clinical practice, teaching and writing on internal medicine to this new book. The book also benefits from close cooperation with the leaders of the specialist internal medicine departments at the University Hospital Zurich, and of other institutions and disciplines.
