PREFACE IT is with the greatest diffidence that I lay this little work before students of the History of Surgery, Medicine, and Pharmacology. A layman-totally untrained in medical science-I suddenly found myself in 1913 admitted to some of the secrets of the reticent Rerber and Arab doctors of the Aures Massif, Algeria. It is my misfortune that I lacked the knowledge necessary to enable me to do justice to the opportunities of studying their art which I have enjoyed. But for the kindly interest taken in my work by the late Sir William Osler I should not have ventured to publish these notes at all. In the circumstances all that I can attempt in the following pages is to describe as I have seen it the life and work of the practitioners of the remote valleys of the Aures Mountains and, when dealing mith their operations and methods of treatment, to act as the mouthpiece of the native doctors themselves. I wish to offer my heartiest thanks to the authorities at the Herbarium at Kew and at the Botanical Gardens, Oxford to Professor E. B. Poulton and Mr. E. W. Holmes, for the care mith which they have determined for me the materia medica I have collected. To the Council of the Royal Society of Medi- cine and of the Royal Anthropological Institute for allowing me to reproduce, in a form amplified as a result of later inquiries in the field, material which I have already dealt with in their Proceedings and Journal the Council of the former Society having kindly permitted me to use again the photograph of a splint Pl. VI, 6 which appeared in the Poceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1920, vol. xiii and to Professor J. A. Gunn and Dr. Charles Singer for much advice and kindly criticism. To Mr. Henry Balfour, Curator of the Pitt-Rivers Museum, Oxford, I am indebted not merely for permission to publish many illustrations of instruments now in that Museum, but also for his never-failing encouragement, without which I should probably never have commenced the, to me, fascinating study of Shawiya ethnography at all. Finally, to the French Government, and to all its officers and officials with whom I have come into contact in Algeria, I desire to express my deep sense of gratitude for all the facilities, kindness, and hospitality which my wife and I have ever received at their hands.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Fourth Edition of this textbook teaches the artful science of the patient interview and the physical examination-from the fundamentals to the most advanced levels. Written in an artful storytelling style, the book describes methods in step-by-step detail, with clinical pearls, vignettes, practical clinical experience, personal history, explanations of the physiologic significance of findings, and extensive discussions of evidence-based medicine. Highlights of this new edition include - 'Points to Remember' boxes with three or four bullets per chapter; more than 300 questions with answers and discussion; revisions based on new material from journals (especially "JAMA", "New England Journal of Medicine", "Mayo Clinic Proceedings", and "Annals of Internal Medicine"); CME conferences, especially the weekly grand rounds at Carondelet St. Joseph's Hospital; specialty conferences pertaining to orthopedics and neurology; and cases that recently came up in practice. It includes more than 120 additional references, some new and some old classics newly discovered by the author; expanded discussion of evidence-based medicine, both its appropriate usage and pitfalls, with additional information on sensitivity, specificity, and other features of various findings from recent studies and review articles; insights on the development of expertise have been added; expanded discussion of sleep apnea, blast injury, 'minor' head trauma, and cervical spine involvement in rheumatoid arthritis; new findings pertaining to transplantation-related graft-versus-host problems, AIDS and the adverse effects of therapy, drug abuse, especially methamphetamine, and egg donation; and additional maneuvers include the scapulohumeral reflex, the head thrust test, the apprehension test, and a newly described test for intercostal muscle innervation. It also includes: additional information on dementia, hysteria, missed aneurysms, pulmonary embolism, evaluation of dehydration/malnutrition, and compressions - only cardiopulmonary resuscitation; updated and substantially simplified discussion of carotid stenosis and indications for carotid endarterectomy; more historical tidbits, for example, on the development of thermometry; and companion website with fully searchable text and 300-question online test bank. Even with all of today's sophisticated laboratory and imaging technology, a skillfully performed patient interview and physical examination can be a quicker and more cost-effective route to an accurate diagnosis. The Fourth Edition of "Sapira's Art and Science of Bedside Diagnosis" is your guide to gaining the most reliable information from your patients, developing a differential diagnosis and an efficient diagnostic strategy.
