The classic point-of-care guide to the undifferentiated patient – enhanced by new cases and a more efficient templated organization
Part physical examination primer, part differential diagnosis tool, DeGowin's Diagnostic Examination, Eleventh Edition takes readers a step beyond elementary physical diagnosis. DeGowin's covers all physical examination techniques and procedures, but this highly practical point-of-care guide goes further, focusing on the meaning of signs and symptoms. It also shows readers how to catalog clinical findings resulting from the physical examination-and order them into a differential diagnosis. This classic text is unrivaled in its comprehensive coverage of differential diagnosis, organized by signs, symptoms, and syndromes. This edition is enhanced by a new templated format for ease of navigation, and updated illustrations throughout.
