This book is intended to be a clear and concise reference for physicians and allied health professionals. Its user-friendly format was designed to provide a fast and efficient way to identify important clinical information and to offer practical guidance in patient management. The book is divided into five sections and an appendix, each with emphasis on clinical information.
The tremendous success of the previous editions and the enthusiastic comments from numerous colleagues have brought about several positive changes. Each section has been significantly expanded from prior editions, bringing the total number of medical topics covered in this book to more than 1000. Nearly 400 new illustrations and tables have been added to the edition to enhance recollection of clinically important facts. The expedited claims submission and reimbursement ICD-10CM codes have been added to all the topics.
Section Idescribes in detail more than 800 medical disorders. Nineteen new topics have been added to the 2017 edition. Each medical topic in this section is arranged alphabetically, and the material in each topic is presented in outline format for ease of retrieval. Topics with an accompanying algorithm in Section III are identified with an algorithm symbol (ALG). Similarly, if topics also have a Patient Teaching Guide (PTG) available online, this has been noted. Throughout the text, key quick-access information is consistently highlighted, clinical photographs are used to further illustrate selected medical conditions, and relevant ICD-10CM codes are listed. Most references focus on current peer-reviewed journal articles rather than outdated textbooks and old review articles. Evidence-based medicine data have been added to relevant topics.
Topics in Section I use the following structured approach:
1. Basic Information (Definition, Synonyms, ICD-10CM Codes, Epidemiology & Demographics, Physical Findings & Clinical Presentation, Etiology)
2. Diagnosis (Differential Diagnosis, Workup, Laboratory Tests, Imaging Studies)
3. Treatment (Nonpharmacologic Therapy, Acute General Rx, Chronic Rx, Disposition, Referral)
4. Pearls & Considerations (Comments, Suggested Readings)
5. Evidence-Based Data and References
Section IIincludes the differential diagnosis, etiology, and classification of signs and symptoms. This section has been significantly expanded for the 2017 edition with the addition of 50 new topics. It is a practical section that allows the user investigating a physical complaint or abnormal laboratory value to follow a “workup” leading to a diagnosis. The physician can then easily look up the presumptive diagnosis in Section I for the information specific to that illness.Section IIIincludes clinical algorithms to guide and expedite the patient’s workup and therapy. Nineteen new algorithms have been added for the 2017 edition. Many physicians describe this section as particularly valuable in today’s managed-care environment.Section IVincludes normal laboratory values and interpretation of results of commonly ordered laboratory tests. Several new illustrations and tables have been added to this section. By providing interpretation of abnormal results, this section facilitates the diagnosis of medical disorders and further adds to the comprehensive, “one-stop” nature of our text.Section Vfocuses on preventive medicine. Information in this section includes recommendations for the periodic health examination, screening for major diseases and disorders, patient counseling, and immunization and chemoprophylaxis recommendations.
The Appendixhas been divided into six major sections. Section I contains extensive information on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). With the material in this appendix, we hope to lessen the current scarcity of exposure of allopathic and osteopathic physicians to the diversity of CAM therapies. Appendix II focuses on nutrition, with an emphasis on dietary supplements, vitamins, and minerals. Appendix III deals with diagnosis and treatment of acute poisoning. Appendix IV is a guide on impairment and disability evaluation. Appendix V, available online, contains an extensive section on primary care procedures. Appendix VI contains several patient teaching guides not linked to Section I topics.As clinicians, we all realize the importance of patient education and the need for clear communication with our patients. Toward that end, practical patient instruction sheets, organized alphabetically and covering the majority of the topics in this book, are available online and can be easily customized and printed from any computer. They represent a valuable addition to patient care and are useful for improving physician-patient communication, patient satisfaction, and quality of care.
I believe that we have produced a state-of-the-art information system with significant differences from existing texts. It contains five sections and patient education guides that could be sold separately based on their content, yet are available under a single cover, offering the reader a tremendous value. I hope that the Clinical Advisor’s user-friendly approach, numerous unique features, and yearly updates will make this book a valuable medical reference, not only to primary care physicians but also to physicians in other specialties, medical students, and allied health professionals
