A new section on clinical practice and diagnostics provides valuable new guidance on diagnostic procedures and reduces the time needed to search for each individual procedure and its associated complications. Further enhanced sections include emergencies, and commonly used drugs used in gastroenterology and hepatology, with emphasis on practice tips and common complications.
Reflecting current approaches in training and curricula, the handbook has been arranged to reflect a clinical problems-based approach. Navigability has been enhanced, with a comprehensive index as well as an anatomical index being added to the existing A-Z format to ensure the right information will always be at your fingertips.
The result of this new approach is a handbook which is practical, easy-to-use, and informative. It is an essential guide to the management of common conditions and is invaluable to all those involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease.
