Clinical Examination Summary

Clinical Examination by Owen Epstein

Clinical Examination 3/e provides all those learning how to interview and examine a patient with clear, practical guidance on all aspects of history taking and patient examination. The book serves both as an exam revision guide and as a primer before going out on to wards, or into primary care setting. Clinical Examination 3/e is designed to be accessible both to medical students starting their clinical attachments and to more experienced readers. This best-selling textbook has been translated into 7 languages thanks to its consistent approach and clear writing style. The innovative use of clinical photographs and the specially commissioned explanatory illustrations combine to clarify the concepts and skills necessary to take a history and perform an examination. The text is organized by body system, with each chapter structured the same way: firstly, underlying structure and function; secondly, signs, symptoms and abnormalities; and, thirdly, patient examination. Numerous Icon boxes are integrated throughout the text which provide: differential diagnosis boxes, and summarize the common causes of clinical abnormalities. Emergency boxes outline the implications for history and examination of certain clinical emergencies. Examination of elderly people boxes guide the reader through the particular difficulties and differences encountered when examining the elderly. Questions to ask boxes list the key questions to ask the patient to help reach a diagnosis. Review boxes summarize the most important points to remember about the examination of each body system. Risk factors boxes give the basic information on the risk factors associated with a particular disease. Symptoms and signs boxes provide the core clinical features of the diseases and disorders.

About Owen Epstein

Owen Epstein is a consultant gastroenterologist at the Royal Free, active both in undergraduate medical student and postgraduate/GP training. He is an enthusiastic advocate of non-traditional, electronic teaching and learning methods, having introduced various interactive teaching systems into the Royal Free. David Perkin is a consultant neurologist and teacher at the Charing Cross, familiar to us as the author of Atlas of Clinical Neurology and Mosby's Color Atlas & Text: Neurology. John Cookson is a consultant (respiratory) physician at the Glenfield Hospital in Leicester, again, very active in studentteaching and particularly interested in non-traditional, interactive teaching methods.

The fourth author on the second edition, David de Bono, died last year and his chapter will be taken over by John Cookson; I propose that David still be listed as an author on the cover and his involvementon previous editions acknowledged inside the 3/e.
