Mosby's Physical Examination Handbook is a concise, pocket-sized guide to physical examination and companion to Seidel et al, Mosby's Guide to Physical Examination, 5th Edition, this beautifully illustrated, full-color clinical manual provides convenient, portable access to comprehensive guidance in physical examination. A dynamic author team gives the Handbook an uncommonly strong multidisciplinary perspective, emphasis on differential diagnosis, and expert coverage of both pediatrics and adult health. Color-coded type is used to make physical examination steps, expected findings, and unexpected findings easy to spot quickly. And now, a new appendix puts a variety of guides to special patient histories at readers' fingertips.

Key Features of Mosby's Physical Examination Handbook:

* Each chapter begins with a concise, clearly identified equipment list for physical examination.
* Easy-to-follow, color-coded tables summarize the core physical examination content in each chapter.

* "Examination Techniques" appear in red, "Expected Findings" appear in blue, and "Unexpected Findings" appear in green.
* "Pediatric Variations" tables, also color coded for easy reference, highlight differences in younger patients' disease presentations.
* "Sample Documentation" sections at the end of each chapter provide straightforward examples of good documentation practice for physical examination.
* A removable, pocket-sized quick-reference card inside the back cover presents a comprehensive at-a-glance reminder list of key elements of physical examination for every body system and region. One side covers "Physical Examination—Objective Data," and the other covers "History—Subjective Data."
* Pages for Clinical and Reference Notes are interspersed throughout the book for personal clinical note-taking.
* Handy, two-column "Aids to Differential Diagnosis" tables summarize abnormalities and their distinguishing characteristics.
