Doody's, summer 2016 Essential Examination has been comprehensively revised and new sections added: Neonatal - the 'baby check' Female genitalia Digital rectal examination GALS screening Foot and ankle Elbow Critically ill patient Confirming death The new edition retains the unique format and approach of the original. Clear, step-by-step guides to each examination, including useful things to say to the patient (or an examiner), detailed descriptions of special tests, etc. In a separate column is a collection of key information: potential findings, differential diagnoses of clinical signs and practical tips. On the following pages there are facts relating to that particular examination and, in many sections, there are also tips on how to present your findings succinctly - a skill which is crucial to master for exam success.

"I LOVE this book - it has all the key examinations with each fitting on a single double page spread." "Best preparation for OSCEs. Learn to do these steps within the time limits and you will pass!"
