The Essential Guide to Primary Care Procedures

by E.J. Mayeaux Jr., MD
  • Hard Cover
Featuring over 1,300 full-color illustrations, this atlas is a comprehensive, hands-on guide to more than 100 medical procedures most commonly performed in an office setting. The book presents step-by-step instructions and illustrations for each procedure and discusses strategies for avoiding common pitfalls. Each chapter includes ordering information for necessary equipment or supplies, CPT codes, ICD-9 codes, global periods, and average U.S. fees for each procedure. Some chapters also refer the practitioner to patient education handouts that will appear online. Appendices include illustrated sections on commonly used instruments and materials. A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text, over 100 patient education handouts, and videos of ten common procedures. = Doody's Core Title Review: "This is a most necessary addition to every training program in primary care or emergency medicine. It is one of the best books on outpatient procedures and there are not many that come anywhere close. In retrospect, this is the book I wish I had in my training 30 years ago."
