In the early 1980s, two junior doctors from Oxford noted down all the medical information they found valuable to keep. As medical students they learned most not from organized lecturers, but from clinical sessions - on the ward and in clinic. Useful notes were written on scraps of paper and it was from this that the original Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine was born.
No other book has entered the hearts, minds and pockets of so many doctors and medical students the world over. Now in its 7th edition, the main features and essence of the original edition remain unchanged. Developed over 21 years, the Handbook encompasses the experience, knowledge and wisdom of more than 10 different authors. With its characteristic combination of incisive guidance, wit, a lucid style, and memorable epigrams, it continues to be the leading pocket reference of clinical medicine.
The 7th edition is fully equipped for the modern doctor with a brand new design and integrated full-color pictures on common problems such as rashes, scars and jaundice. There is a new chapter on radiology and new information on consent and how to handle common calls. The epidemiology chapter has been revised in line with the undergraduate curriculum and there is greater coverage of medications and doses, clinical skills and surgery. There are also numerous other updates and improvements throughout, many suggested by extensive market research and readers' feedback. Three new junior co-authors have been brought on board to ensure that the content reflects what readers really need.
The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine for PDA enables enhanced, multi-layered access to the entire text, illustrations and tables. Fast access is available via the table of contents, index and full-text search, and there is a facility for bookmarking and annotating the text. It is suitable for all Palm and Pocket PC devices, as well as PDA-enabled mobile phones.
All in all, the latest Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine PDA and book pack is just what the doctor ordered.

From reviews of the previous edition:
`Since it was published in 1985, this book has become an indispensable guide for medical students, junior doctors and GPs...this edition is even more practically orientated with extra sections on drug dosing, example electrocardiograms and colour photographs...a permanently up-to-date piece of
software that is ideal for use on the move.'
British Journal of Hospital Medicine
`Now in its sixth edition, the 'Cheese and Onion' (as it is known) continues to be the most popular handbook for both the undergraduate and the junior doctor on the wards... The reason this little book remains so popular is that most topics are covered succinctly on a two-page spread of the
book, and coloured headings break up the text and provide a logical structure for readers of all levels. Not only has the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine aided in the diagnosis and treatment of countless patients, it has also helped thousands of students prepare and pass examinations. Size
isn't everything, and that certainly is true here. Common clinical questions are answered clearly and extensively, while weird and wonderful conditions, which are rarely encountered, also get a good crack at the whip. They say the proof is in the pudding, and the fact that this book has sold more
than a million copies worldwide speaks volumes.'
Hospital Doctor February 2005
`This handbook goes from strength to strength as each edition keeps abreast of the breathtaking advances in clinical practice... It comes with the now familiar plastic flexicover which means it can take rough handling. It is ideal for junior hospital doctors, medical students and GPs and is
packed with practical, easy to read advice... it is a huge topic and a bold task to cover it in such a small portable volume but like the preceeding editions, it manages this admirably well... It is packed with facts, knowledge and most important of all, it is an intensely practical book. If you
are stuck on what to do next in managing a patient, this is the book to look up... There is no padding here; it is fact, solutions and advice all the way. All the information is very modern, relevant and presented in a highly readable format. It is ideal for both hospital doctors, GPs and their
registrars and is superb value for money.'
Dr Harry Brown December 2004
`This is one of the most useful books you can own if you are involved in the day-to-day management of patients and conditions... Get it! Now!'
