This is the seventh edition of a popular handbook of information. It has been revised every two years since its inception, and in this edition has undergone extensive changes.
As a quick reference handbook, this is probably the most complete available. Everything from laboratory procedures to physical examination and history taking is included. There are sections on poisoning, radioisotopes, fluid and electrolyte balance, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and helium therapy, in fact on practically every special procedure or examination known. The book is a fund of readily available information and would be valuable to almost anyone practicing medicine.
