Pathophys & pharm unite
All the knowledge you need as a med student or resident in Internal
Med. Solid coverage. A+
Written in a very logical, straightforward way, with just the right
amount of pathophysiology, allowing for learning rather than
memorizing. Sections are divided and subdivided so that you can easily
find exactly what you are looking for - if not the entire chapter. The
pathophysiology and treatment sections are what separate this handbook
from the others I have bought during residency (Ferri, Wash Man.,
Pocket Med). I was initially skeptical as I already spent way too much
money on handbooks, that for the most part never see my hands.
However... this one delivers. It is an all-encompassing handbook - by
that I mean that for its size, it relates the most information in a
very user friendly format. Treatment is in depth - with the entire
book being high yield for both the medicine wards and USMLE exams (I
wish I had this for my medicine booards). I have never written a
review, but this book deserves it. Like one of the other reviewers
stated, this is the best available - getting my highest praise and
recomendation. Upon becoming a chief resident next year, I will ensure
that the entire residency class is aware of it. Yes... I like it that
much. Trust me in that so will you. Enjoy.
AWESOME explanation of EVERY single aspect of
INTERNAL MED!!! A must HAVE!!
This book goes into the pathophys of the bread & butter!!!! It bolds
the highyield points and has Side effects of TX to keep in mind!!!
THIS book is as far more precise and understandable than any other
TEXTBOOK such as harrison's, Washington mannual, and even Robbin's!!!
A review from the heart!!
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. The chapters devoted to critical care
medicine (assisted methods of ventilation & sepsis) are worth the
price alone as they break the subjects and the various modalities and
treatments down to a very understandable level... better than any
other text or review article I have read!! My ICU attending was so
impressed, that he asked me to make copies of several chapters for all
3 teams. Copyright issues??? Anyway, this book has a fan in me. Just
thought I'd add this to whats already been said.
Consult Manual of Internal Medicine
Wonderful and a great learning tool. I'm a practitioner and I'm using
it to "refresh my memory!!!"
A Personal Touch
I rotated on Dr. Rosen's medicine team during my third year ICU
rotation. It was the greatest rotation I ever had. This guy loves
medicine. All the medical students and residents tried rotating onto
his team because he was so passionate about teaching. He loved to sit
with us and simply field questions if we were having a slow day. He
was also all over every aspect of each patients care. Definitely
meticulous. His book is an awesome compilation of his teachings. It is
as though I have him in my coat pocket whenever I need him. I love
that. This chubby handbook is everything you need on the wards.
Diseases discussed and broken down extremely well, with everything
actually being explained rather than simply stated. His method of
delivery is to break things down by effects on organ systems. The book
also serves as an excellent guide to the treatment of those
diseases... being basically a pharmacology text as well. Its an
