Written by leading American practitioners, the Oxford American Handbooks of Medicine each offer a pocket-sized overview of an entire specialty, featuring instant access to guidance on the conditions that are most likely to be encountered. Precise and prescriptive, the handbooks offer up-to-date advice on examination, investigations, common procedures, and in-patient care. These books will be invaluable resources for residents and students, as well as a useful reference for practitioners. The Oxford American Handbook of Geriatric Medicine is the essential ready-reference to effective geriatric practice. Written in a concise, accessible style, the Handbook covers the entire range of diseases and disorders commonly encountered in the care of older adults and offers easily accessible 'how to' information to facilitate basic geriatric care decisions. Guidance is offered concerning both ethical and clinical decision-making along with evidence-based information on key topics as well as insight into balancing competing priorities in the older patient. Tables and algorithms provide step-wise instruction for evaluation and management. This is a must have resource for all clinical settings.
