Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery
Hugo Farne, James Warbrick-Smith, Edward Norris-Cervetto
Oxford Cases in Medicine and Surgery teaches students a hypothesis-driven, step-by-step, logical diagnostic approach to common patient presentations. This hands-on approach, which stimulates active learning, mirrors that used by successful clinicians on the wards, challenging students with questions at each stage of a case (history-taking, examination, investigation, management). In tackling these questions, students learn to integrate their existing knowledge and apply it to a real-life scenario from start to finish.
Each chapter focuses on a common presenting symptom (e.g. chest pain), rather than a physiological system (e.g. cardiology). By starting with a symptom, as doctors do in reality, students learn to draw on their knowledge of different physiological systems – for example, cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology – at the same time.
Within each chapter, a long case walks the student through a logical method for tackling patients presenting with a given symptom. Subsequent short cases test this learning, whilst reminding students to be wary of other conditions that may present in a similar way. All the major presenting symptoms in general medicine and surgery are covered, together with a broad range of pathologies.
With references to landmark trials, relevant guidelines, and the inclusion of questions that are frequently asked in clinical settings, this book is an essential resource for all medicine students, and provides a modern, well-rounded introduction to life on the wards.
