Today, an increasing number of healthcare professionals (including nurses, midwives and members of many allied professions) have to conduct the vital first stage in a patient’s journey – taking a clinical history and conducting an effective physical examination. This book offers clear, practical guidance on the fundamentals of clinical examination for any practitioner who wishes to understand their patient’s specific needs and to plan appropriate care. Recognising that readers will come from a diverse range of clinical backgrounds and roles, the opening chapter (on consultation and the skills needed to take an accurate clinical history) underpins the systems-based approach. This, combined with the use of case study examples, allows healthcare professionals to focus on the principles of examining the system or systems that are most relevant to their specific area of practice. The book also includes a helpful glossary and list of abbreviations. This new, updated edition contains revised chapters on genitourinary assessment, obstetric assessment and mental health assessment. There is also a completely new chapter on eye, ear, nose and throat assessment, covering the EENT conditions most commonly encountered in primary healthcare. Contents include: • Consultation and clinical history-taking skills • Respiratory assessment • Cardiovascular assessment • Gastrointestinal assessment • Neurological assessment • Genitourinary assessment • Musculoskeletal assessment • Obstetric assessment • Mental health assessment • Perioperative assessment • Eye, ear, nose and throat assessment

Benefit from the experience and expertise of a skilled face-lift surgeon, Dr. Fritz E. Barton, in this outstanding book on facial rejuvenation. Written in a personal style that engages the reader, Dr. Barton shares his personal philosophy that a more extensive face lift is worth the effort if it delivers a highly consistent, long-lasting, and natural result. For him, that operation is the High-SMAS. Step-By-Step Descriptions This beautiful, four-color semi-atlas describes and illustrates every step leading to mastery of the High-SMAS face-lift procedure with tips and tricks scattered throughout. A detailed analysis of variations in different faces is provided, along with methods for approaching them surgically to help the surgeon individualize treatment. Comprehensive Coverage The book is divided into two parts. The first part, Basic Considerations, contains a wealth of information about topics ranging from office set-up and patient consultation to anatomy and anesthesia. The introductory chapter on the office contains valuable insights and suggestions to assist surgeons in dealing with issues of office planning, staffing, and effective office management. The second part, Procedures, includes step-by-step descriptions of operations for the forehead, eyes, face, and neck. To complement these technique chapters, the book also includes information on perioperative care and complications. Two extensive chapters on nonsurgical cosmetic treatments describe the various noninvasive treatments, such as lasers, botox and fillers, and various topical skin care options and how these can be combined with surgical rejuvenation to complete and enhance the overall result.
