If one has ever had the experience of being a naive substitute intern tossed into the maw of a busy medical ward and confronted with terrifying orders to perform hypodermoclyses, spinal taps, and bewildering laboratory procedures, he will regret that this valuable little manual was previously unavailable.
Tersely restricted to essentials and amply illustrated, it scans routine hospital techniques, laboratory procedures, electrocardiography, and radiography. It also outlines the specialized examination of the various anatomic systems. It can be recommended as an excellent handbook for the senior medical student, intern, and practitioner as a reminder of the essentials of medical practice.
