Blood Loss Book Excerpt:

Presumed dead by the Guild, Philip, a former Collector who used to kill and capture supernatural creatures, has finally accepted the fact that he is actually the very prey he once hunted-a hybrid. With the appearance of a human and the blood of a troll, Philip has powers no human could ever possess. These powers are exhilarating, but they come with a price. Philip must hide his true identity, lest he become a hunted creature himself. While on the road, Philip and Alayna-Philip's lovely, Elfas companion-get wind of a tragic occurrence. Beathan, the gypsy fairy, has been captured and is now a captive of the Collectors Guild, bound for the hellish supernatural prison known as St. Thomas's. Will Philip and Alayna risk their lives and their freedom to attempt a jailbreak of unimaginable proportions? Or will they abandon their roguish fairy friend to his fate as a doomed prisoner?

The Rational Clinical Examination Evidence Based Clinical Diagnosis Book Excerpt:

The ultimate guide to the evidence-based clinical encounter "This book is an excellent source of supported evidence that provides useful and clinically relevant information for the busy practitioner, student, resident, or educator who wants to hone skills of physical diagnosis. It provides a tool to improve patient care by using the history and physical examination items that have the most reliability and efficiency."--Annals of Internal Medicine "The evidence-based examination techniques put forth by Rational Clinical Examination is the sort that can be brought to bear on a daily basis – to save time, increase confidence in medical decisions, and help decrease unnecessary testing for conditions that do not require absolute diagnostic certainty. In the end, the whole of this book is greater than its parts and can serve as a worthy companion to a traditional manual of physical examination."--Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC)Proceedings 5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "Physical diagnosis has been taught to every medical student but this evidence-based approach now shows us why, presenting one of medicine's most basic tenets in a new and challenging light. The format is extraordinary, taking previously published material and updating the pertinent evidence since the initial publication, affirming or questioning or refining the conclusions drawn from the data. "This is a book for everyone who has studied medicine and found themselves doubting what they have been taught over the years, not that they have been deluded, but that medical traditions have been unquestionably believed because there was no evidence to believe otherwise. The authors have uncovered the truth. "This extraordinary, one-of-a-kind book is a valuable addition to every medical library."--Doody's Review Service Completely updated with new literature analyses, here is a uniquely practical, clinically relevant approach to the use of evidence in the content of physical examination. Going far beyond the scope of traditional physical examination texts, this invaluable resource compiles and presents the evidence-based meanings of signs, symptoms, and results from physical examination maneuvers and other diagnostic studies. Page after page, you'll find a focus on actual clinical questions and presentations, making it an incomparably practical resource that you'll turn to again and again. Importantly, the high-yield content of The Rational Clinical Examination is significantly expanded and updated from the original JAMA articles, much of it published here for the first time. It all adds up to a definitive, ready-to-use clinical exam sourcebook that no student or clinician should be without. FEATURES Packed with updated, new, and previously unpublished information from the original JAMA articles Standardized template for every issue covered, including: Case Presentation; Why the Issue Is Clinically Important; Research and Statistical Methods Used to Find the Evidence Presented; The Sensitivity and Specificity of Each Key Result; Resolution of the Case Presentation; and the Clinical Bottom Line Completely updated with all-new literature searches and appraisals supplementing each chapter Full-color format with dynamic clinical illustrations and images Real-world focus on a specific clinical question in each chapter, reflecting the way clinicians approach the practice of evidence-based medicine More than 50 complete chapters on common and challenging clinical questions and patient presentations Also available: JAMAevidence.com, a new interactive database for the best practice of evidence based medicine

Emergency Triage Book Excerpt:

Emergency Triage: Telephone Triage and Advice complements the highly successful Emergency Triage. The algorithms are rooted in the Manchester Triage System (MTS), which is used in hospitals around the world and which is acknowledged as an effective means of clinical prioritisation. This telephone iteration of a triage system which prioritises millions of patients each year provides a robust, safe, evidence-based system for managing the clinical risk in patients who are at a distance from health care providers. The basic principles that drive the MTS remain, but this book addresses the specific difficulties of assessment by telephone. The possible triage outcomes are "face-to-face now", "face-to-face soon" and "face-to-face later" together with a self-care option. Information and advice is suggested at every level. The advice ranges from life-saving interventions, which can be carried out until health care arrives, to self-care instructions. Emergency Triage: Telephone Triage and Advice provides all the necessary information that telephone triage staff must have to hand as well as including examples of questions to be asked. It will be a valuable resource for staff working in emergency departments, health centres and telephone triage organisations. Furthermore hospitals that are already using Emergency Triage will benefit from being linked with a telephone triage system that follows the same protocols.
