A concise resource drawn from the landmark guide to internal medicine
Harrison's Manual of Medicine, 19th Edition presents clinical information drawn from the 19th edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine (HPIM), covering the key features of the diagnosis, clinical manifestations, and treatment of the major diseases that are likely to be encountered in medical practice.
First published in 1988, the Manual has become ever more useful with the rapid expansion of medical knowledge and the increasing time constraints associated with heavy patient-care responsibilities in modern health care settings. The Manual’s popularity and value reflect its abbreviated format, which has proven extremely useful for initial diagnosis and management in time-restricted clinical settings. In particular, the book’s full-color format allows readers to locate and use information quickly.
Perfect for use at the point of care
The Manual has been written for easy and seamless reference to the full text of the 19th edition of HPIM. Although not a substitute for in-depth analysis of clinical problems, the Manual serves as a ready source of informative summaries, numerous tables, and detailed graphics that will be useful “on the spot” and that will prepare the reader for more in-depth analysis through more extensive reading at a later time. Every chapter of the 19th edition has been closely reviewed and updated, with substantial revisions and new chapters provided where appropriate.
