Summary
  • In the tradition of the famous Users' Guides to the Medical Literature, The JAMA series, this book was created to bring the principles of evidence-based medicine to the diagnostic process. Featuring specific clinical questions, numerous case examples, and precise summaries of available evidence, the RCE series was an instant hit. Now for the very first time in book form, 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
  • "Trainees and experienced clinicians alike will find The Rational Clinical Examination to be the perfect supplement to standard physical examination textbooks.You will learn the best questions to ask patients, which physical examination findings have the most clinical significance, and how to put the information to quantitative use."--BOOK JACKET
