Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Clinical Neurology (OTCN) series, this volume provides and up-to-date summary of the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and management of disorders leading to dizziness and poor balance.
Vertigo, dizziness, and imbalance rank amongst the most common presenting symptoms in neurology, ENT, geriatric medicine, and general practice. These symptoms can originate from many different organs and systems, such as the inner ear, general medical conditions, neurological and psychological disorders. The Oxford Textbook of Vertigo and Imbalance provides an up-to-date summary of the scientific basis, clinical diagnosis, and management of disorders leading to dizzinessand poor balance. This textbook is conceptually divided into three sections, detailing the scientific basis, general clinical.
In the early 1980s, two junior doctors from Oxford noted down all the medical information they found valuable to keep. As medical students they learned most not from organised lecturers but from clinical sessions - on the ward and in clinic. Useful notes were written on scraps of paper, and it was from this that the original Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine was born.No other book has entered the hearts, minds and pockets of so many doctors and medical students the world over. Now in its 7th edition, the main features and essence of the original edition remain unchanged. Developed over 21 years, the Handbook encompasses the experience, knowledge and wisdom of more than 10 different authors. With its characteristic combination of incisive guidance, wit, a lucid style, and memorable epigrams, it continues to be the leading pocket reference of clinicalmedicine.The 7th edition is fully equipped for the modern doctor with a brand new design with integrated full-colour pictures on common problems such as rashes, scars and jaundice. There is a new chapter on radiology, new information on consent and how to handle common calls, and greater coverage of medications and doses, clinical skills and surgery. There are also numerous other updates and improvements throughout, many suggested by extensive market research and reader's feedback. Three new juniorco-authors have been brought on board to ensure that the content reflects what readers really need. All in all, the latest Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is just what the doctor ordered.
Vestibular Disorders, Third Edition, uses a case-study approach to outline the principles and practice of the care of patients with dizziness and balance disorders. The text reflects the combined perspectives and experience of a neurologist (Dr. Furman) a neurotologic surgeon (Dr. Cass), and a physical therapist (Dr. Whitney). Each case study contains relevant material regarding history, physical examination, laboratory testing, differential diagnosis, and treatment. This material provides a springboard for discussion of either a concept in the field of vestibular disorders or the diagnosis or treatment of a particular disease state. Practical, specific treatment options are discussed throughout the book. The book is written to a wide audience and educational level of readers including Primary Care Physicians, Otolaryngologists, Neurologists, Physical Therapist, and Audiologists. The case-format style of the book lends itself to use in teaching programs involving medical students, residents, physical therapy students, and audiology students, and as a reference text for clinicians at the bedside. Each of the cases from the first and second editions have been updated, the background material has been expanded and eight new cases have been added. Vestibular Disorders, Third Edition, aims to span the gap between existing in-depth tests and the problems that arise whenever a patient presents with dizziness.
Twelve books in one, this handbook covers all the clinical specialties, with new sections on child psychiatry, sex education, Internet searching, clinical governance, birth injuries to mothers, how to avoid being judgmental, and much more.
This practical handbook of medical practice has been updated and revised to take into account the modern developments in clinical medicine. It has new chapters on oncology and radiology. The main focus is on clinical management, although disease background
This handbook describes the diagnostic process clearly and logically, aiding medical students and others who wish to improve their diagnostic performance and to learn more about the diagnostic process.
This title uses a case study approach to outline the field of dizziness and balance disorders. Written from the combined perspectives of a neurologist and a neurotologic surgeon, each case study describes history, physical examination, laboratory testing, differential diagnosis and treatment. The text includes background material and 59 case studies, five of which concern multiple diagnoses and ten of which address controversial issues.
Intended for use by all physiotherapists working in the neurological field, this book shows how to analyze patient problems and select appropriate therapies for each situation. The emphasis is therefore on identification of symptoms in relation to the resultant impairment of movement, rather than on the detailed decription of neurological conditions. Whilst it is important to understand the disease process of, for example, multiple sclerosis, the medical diagnosis has little bearing on the problems arising in terms of functional impairment.
