Murtagh’s General Practice Companion Latest Edition Ebook PDF download
Murtagh’s General Practice Companion Latest Edition Ebook PDF download This companion is a summary of the content of the major text General
Practice fi fth edition. It was written in response to requests from several
hundred practitioners who considered that it would be very useful to have a
pocket-sized condensation of General Practice, which could be carried around
during work hours. The companion gives an alphabetical presentation of the vast majority of problems—especially nitty-gritty problems presenting
in routine practice.
It focuses on management so that detailed information about clinical
features, investigation and whole person management will be lacking. Such
details can be found in General Practice. Detailed references are also found
in General Practice. Several topics such as antibiotic prescribing, biological
terrorism and court appearances have been transferred from the major text
to this companion.
The revised companion now includes several checklists or diagrams regularly accessed by the busy practioner. Examples include dermatomes, the mini-mental state examination, Snellen’s chart, ECG and respiratory function test pointers. The main references used are the Drug Guideline series published by Therapeutic Guidelines Limited.
