Oxford Case Histories in Respiratory Medicine by John Stradling
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Based around the curriculum for specialist trainees in respiratory medicine and designed for those preparing for exit exams, this book contains 44 well-structured, peer-reviewed cases gathered from the Oxford Hospitals, comprehensively covering the various disorders of the respiratory system. New developments in medical training at junior and registrar level have created a need for a collection of cases which enable self-assessment, directed at postgraduates. Each case comprises a brief clinical history and relevant examination findings, details of investigations, medical imaging followed by questions on differential diagnosis, and management and detailed answers and discussion.
