John Murtagh's Practice Tips by John Murtagh

Book Description

"There are very few medical texts that endure to a fifth edition with the same sole author. Practice Tips is one. The incredible success of this book is due to the fact that it presents a solution to common technical problems encountered in everyday general practice."--Clinical Associate Professor Geoff Quail, Department of Surgery, Monash University, Melbourne The fifth edition of Practice Tips continues to be an invaluable reference for GPs, family physicians, and medical practitioners, offering practical advice and handy tips on patient treatment. Drawn from John Murtagh's extensive experience as a rural GP, the book provides essential information and step-by-step instructions on how to deal with patient ailments and medical conditions encountered in everyday practice. It adopts a common sense approach to medicine, providing tried-and-tested approaches to treatment and improvisation methods using convenient tools and readily available equipment to treat patients as painlessly and effectively as possible. Written with the busy practitioner in mind, the book clearly and concisely explains common procedures and is supplemented with more than 450 simple line drawings to demonstrate the techniques. A comprehensive range of medical conditions is presented, such as how to remove swallowed foreign bodies, how to treat ingrown toenails, and how to reposition a dislocated shoulder, as well as new information on musculoskeletal injection guidelines, wound management tips, and principles for fractures. Using simple, non-technical language, the book is easily accessible for medical students and the nursing community as well as medical practitioners. This fifth edition has been completely revised and updated with new tips and diagrams throughout, and more than 30 new problems have been added.
