• Soft Cover
Prepared by residents and chief residents with senior faculty advisors at the Washington University School of Medicine, this handbook is an updated, easily accessible quick reference for handling everyday problems encountered in gastroenterology. It covers both inpatient and outpatient approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington Manual® of Medical Therapeutics. The first section covers common symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities; the second section focuses on specific diseases. Chapters are structured to help the clinician develop a logical, systematic approach to these common problems. Key points about the diagnosis and management of disorders are bulleted for easy reference. This edition also includes illustrations. The Washington Manual® is a registered mark belonging to Washington University in St. Louis to which international legal protection applies. The mark is used in this publication by LWW under license from Washington University. =Doody's Core Title Review: "This is a useful pocketbook vade mecum for trainees.
