   schema:description "This book revitalizes the importance of the history and physical examination as the foundation of clinical evaluation. It provides invaluable hints, aids and guidelines for effective physical diagnosis. Clinicians who value these basic skills should not be without it. From the forward, by Basil J. Zitelli, M.D. This is the second edition of a successful textbook which puts emphasis on the study and knowledge of normality in physical diagnosis, in order to better appreciate, describe, diagnose and treat the abnormal. Clearly written and generously illustrated, it describes in practical step-by-step, head to-toe procedures, the diagnostic examination of the newborn, child and adolescent. It provides a novel approach to the recognition and description of physical findings. The book is divided into 4 sections - Introduction to the Concept of Normality, Taking the History, Physical Examinations, and Specialised Examinations. It emphasises the importance of both subjective and objective observations, of distinguishing between the two, and of the use of exact measurements whenever possible. The book is comprehensive and easy to use, the text flows easily and understandably, unusual or key words are defined, rare diseases, unusual syndromes and name-dropping are avoided wherever possible. In short, this new edition of Pediatric Physical Diagnosis is an enjoyable, invaluable reference for both the beginner and the experienced physician and for trainees specialising in pediatrics and neonatology."@en ;
