Book Description:

This new volume in the Current Clinical Practice series puts the most
important evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical guidelines
together in one place. As a result, busy clinicians can go to one
source when, in the care of a patient, a question arises that is best
answered by an existing clinical guideline.

Among the topics covered in this volume are hyperlipidemia, management
of newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation, antithrombotic therapy for
venous thromboembolic disease and atrial fibrillation, and prevention
of bacterial endocarditis. The book details treatment for asthma and
infectious diseases ranging from pneumonia to tuberculosis to diarrhea.
The volume also contains chapters on endocrinology, gynecology,
neurology, and psychiatry.

With the busy clinician in mind, Essential Practice Guidelines in
Primary Care has been constructed from its origin to have a companion
PDA resource, with summaries of the guidelines in this book and
additional summaries of guidelines not included in the book. (The PDA
version of Essential Practice Guidelines in Primary Care is available
from the publisher, ISBN 1-934115-47-9.) Together, these complimentary
textbooks, in print and electronic format, should facilitate the
implementation of nationally recognized clinical guidelines.
