An all new edition of the original Scut Monkey Handbook–the acclaimed survival guide for the wards and the clinic
4 STAR DOODY’S REVIEW
“This pocket reference is packed with information that is important for medical students and interns on a day-to-day basis. It is rich with practical information that might otherwise be located in different manuals…. The fundamental information is important for all clinicians to master, thus the book serves housestaff quite well also…. This book continues to be a favorite among medical students and housestaff for good reason.”–Doody’s Review Service (on a previous edition)
This portable, pocket-sized “manual of manuals” provides medical students and residents with essential patient care information, including up-to-date coverage of current treatment protocols, clinical microbiology, critical care, and commonly used medications. Readers will find step-by-step guidance on the history and physical examination, differential diagnosis, key lab and diagnostic tests, and much more.
The Twelfth Edition is highlighted by NEW specialty Pearls; NEW chapters on the Patient Presentation, Specialized Diagnostics, Hospice and Palliative Care, Interdisciplinary Health Care Teams, and Principles of Ambulatory Care; and “must know” board tips at the end of each chapter; and NEW laboratory tests.
