This book presents selected literature-based information clinicians need to know to provide informed patient care and avoid medical misadventures.

Diagnostic principles and applications : avoiding medical errors, passing board exams, and providing informed patient care by Robert B Taylor( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Which disease should you consider when a young adult has localized bone pain that is dramatically relieved by aspirin? What is sometimes the only physical manifestation of bulimia nervosa? These so-called "old fashioned" historical clues and physical signs are not only part of our medical heritage; their deployment can often spell the difference between prompt clinical diagnosis versus a costly investigative odyssey. Often overlooked with today's emphasis on laboratory testing, a diagnostic pearl such as knowing that a diabetic patient with peripheral neuropathy may actually have metformin-induced vitamin B12 deficiency can be a shortcut to disease recognition. Diagnostic Principles and Applications presents selected literature-based facts and diagnostic insights to help clinicians provide better-informed clinical assessments, avoid medical misadventures, and prepare for their board examinations. The chapters cover: Classic diagnostic pearls; Red flag symptoms and signs of serious illness; Bellwether disease indications allowing an occasional early, preemptive diagnosis; Counterintuitive clinical manifestations of disease; Curious clues to specific diagnoses. Robert B. Taylor, MD is the author and editor of more than two dozen medical books, including three on the topic of clinical diagnosis, and several hundred published articles. He is a veteran of both rural private practice and chairmanship of a medical school clinical department
On the shoulders of medicine's giants : what today's clinicians can learn from yesterday's wisdom by Robert B Taylor( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Medical history offers us many wise thoughts, a few misguided notions, and a host of intriguing back-stories. On the Shoulders of Medicine's Giants presents a selection of these, and tells how the words of medicine's "Giants"--Such as Hippocrates, Sir William Osler, Francis Weld Peabody, and Elizabeth Kübler-Ross -- are relevant to medical science and practice in the 21st century. Which physician was the inspiration for the fictional character Sherlock Holmes, and what did he identify as "the real essential factor in all successful medical diagnoses"? What did Sigmund Freud describe as his "tyrant," and what might this mean for doctors today? Do you know the attributed source of the well-known aphorism about horses and zebras, and what we believe this physician actually said? This book answers these questions and more, while also providing fascinating tales about each individual quoted. On the Shoulders of Medicine's Giants is recommended for practicing physicians, students, and residents, as well as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and anyone involved in patient care who wants to understand the historical and epistemological foundations of what we do each day in practice."--

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the intriguing and often colorful stories of the medical words we use. The origins of clinical and scientific terms can be found in Greek and Latin myths, in places such as jungles of Uganda and the islands of the Aegean Sea, in the names of medicine's giants such as Hippocrates and Osler, and in some truly unlikely sources. In this book you will learn the answers to questions such as: What disease was named for an American space flight? Do you know the echoic word for elephantine rumbling of the bowels? What drug name was determined by drawing chemists' notes out of a hat? What are surfer's eye, clam digger's itch, and hide porter's disease? This book can give you new insights into the terms we use every day in the clinic, hospital, and laboratory. Knowing a word's history assists in understanding not only what it means, but also some of the connotative subtleties of terms used in diagnosis and treatment. The Amazing Language of Medicine is intended for the enrichment of physicians, other health professionals, students, and anyone involved in clinical care and medical science."--Back cover
