In this article, we have shared a review and a free pdf download link (Google Drive) of Macleod’s Clinical Examination 13th Edition.
The 13th Edition of MACLEOD’S CLINICAL EXAMINATION contains the practical skills clinicians must develop to learn advanced diagnostic procedures, management strategies, and plans. Throughout the book, the methods of obtaining an accurate history and performing a physical examination are emphasized. Each main chapter begins by describing the relevant symptom and its significance.
The normal findings in a physical examination are described and related to important aspects of applied anatomy and physiology. The examination sequence and the relevance of abnormal signs are then discussed in detail. Chapters conclude with the advantages and limitations of the investigations as well as examples.
This classic textbook sets out clearly and concisely how to evaluate symptoms and elicit relevant physical signs. It describes the practical skills which every clinician must acquire and develop in order to evolve diagnostic procedures and management strategies and plans. ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2006 and 2010 BMA Medical Book Competitions, this Thirteenth Edition contains over 500 clinical photographs and diagrams to illustrate the text, with new topics added to make the book even more comprehensive.
This Thirteenth Edition has four sections:
- History taking and general examination.
- System examination covering symptoms and signs.
- Examination in special situations including babies & children and the critically ill.
- Assessing clinical examination techniques.
Included on the Student Consult site are the specially-recorded videos demonstrating many of the clinical examination routines described in the main text.
