Saunders Manual of Medical Practice

By admin

The New Edition provides the latest, essential information on the symptoms, diseases, treatments, and procedures most commonly encountered in everyday practice. It features step-by-step clinical guidance for more than 320 common diseases and disorders, as well as explicit guidelines for over 60 office procedures. An organ-system organization, extensive alphabetical index, and cross references within the individual chapters make the information easy to find.

Customer Review: Saunders Manual of Family Practice

I have read selected sections of this book in its 1st and 2nd editions and it is a good reference and study source in outline form, procedures are well described and clear. I also recommend Stobo’s Review of Internal Medicine (authors are from Johns Hopkins) or Lange’s Current Medical Diagnosis and Treatment to go with the Saunders text or Cecil’s Essentials of Medicine, texts in traditional manuscript.

Customer Review: From a Hospital Based Coder’s Point of View

I often have to look up a disease process to assign the most accurate and appropriate ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes. This book has become favored over the Merck Manual because it is easier for me to understand in a concise format. I still have and use my Merck Manual, it’s a classic. I go to this book first, then the Merck Manual. I have recommended this book in workshops that I give to other “coders” because of its ease of use to others than physicians.
