Handbook of Pediatric Physical DiagnosisBook - 1998
A comprehensive physical examination, along with a detailed history, is the cornerstone of effective pediatric patient care. But with today's emphasis on laboratory tests, the methods used in physical diagnosis are often overlooked in the training of physicians. This revised, updated edition of Dr. Barness's classic handbook provides a thorough, systematic guide to pediatric physical diagnosis. Dr. Barness details the characteristics and techniques of a complete physical examination in a child and explains how to interpret the significance of physical findings.Chapters cover the approach to the patient, the examination of each organ system, the neurologic examination, and the examination of the newborn. Emphasis is on recognizing the many variations among normal children and determining normality, variations from normal, and abnormal states. The user-friendly format features numerous lists and tables of differential diagnoses.
