One can't always see a picture and its caption in the same field. Incidentally, the support website listed in the accompanying booklet states that for this CD-ROM there is 'no product support'; however, the booklet does offer an e-mail address and telephone number for customer support.

The fourth edition on CD-ROM has the entire contents of the printed textbook, including figures and tables. The book is billed as unrivalled in its coverage of 'internal medicine and its sub-specialties'. For this review I used it as a reference for problems encountered on general medical unselected acute 'takes'.

Amongst diverse topics that I found well covered were brachial neuralgia, endocarditis, common variable immunodeficiency, Sudeck's atrophy, heart and lung transplant, hypernatraemia, and methaemoglobin this last by Sir David Weatherall. Wearing my 'general medicine' hat I would have welcomed more emphasis on practical aspects of management.

For instance, although there is superb coverage of the clinical presentation and pathology of multiple sclerosis, there is scant information on the practical management of respiratory and urinary infections in these patients.

The harrassed physician will search in vain for guidance on the byzantine process involved in 'sectioning' patients under the Mental Health Act although we are referred to the Concise OTM for further reading!

In my own specialty of respiratory medicine, coverage is excellent. A subject that probably warrants a longer and more comprehensive section in future editions is 'chronic cough'; most chest clinics will have a patient with this complaint. The word-search facility in the electronic version is very useful since the index is not wholly reliable. For instance, I was unable to find either Duchenne's muscular dystrophy or hereditary spastic paraplegia in the index, although both topics are covered in the text.

Looking under 'graft versus host disease' in the index one would be unaware that lungs can be involved although bronchiolitis obliterans does occur separately in the index and is well-covered in the text. Similarly, the index was no use in finding the table of drugs that can cause hyponatraemia.

The index could be made more doctor-friendly. The index lists 'SSRIs' but with no link to the text. Then, these photographs would have entranced me, but I realize that most of these conditions I am unlikely to see in a clinical lifetime.

What use does this book have for a practising anaesthetist today? I have regularly used every edition of this book.

Thus, this text was our main line medical reference from its first issue. It has always been easy to search, once one got use to the indexing system, which refers to the volume and page but not the chapter. Every condition your patient may have preoperatively is surely mentioned in this book.

There is no doubt that you will find it, whether your patient has a rare endocrine disorder of the pancreas or porphyria. This is, I think, the main use for this text in anaesthetic practice.

The standard approach used in these volumes may not be attractive to anaesthetists, for the first volume of the book has long sections on infectious, including tropical, diseases, as in previous editions.

Substantial contributions on typhus, leprosy and envenoming are of little interest to the majority of us.

But this approach is understandable; it makes the book truly international. Environmental factors, Clinical pharmacology, and Nutrition end Volume 1, before Volume 2 starts a systematic approach to disease states. A huge, international list of famous names such as R.

Many of these sections have been substantially reorganized since the third edition, with a host of new authors. There are contributions from the President of the Royal College of Physicians of London on systemic sclerosis, Imrie on pancreatitis, and de Swiet on thromboembolism and chest diseases in pregnancy.

An anaesthetist may not be attracted to such a book for its information about intensive therapy, but it does provide a good background to this subspecialty for a trainee in general medicine or surgery. In contrast, the section on reference intervals for biochemical data number 32 is useful for all medical practitioners. It covers hormones, paediatric reference intervals, trace elements, and drug levels.

Conversion factors SI to conventional are given when appropriate. The approach to practical procedures Other medical emergencies, such as anaphylaxis Chapter Indeed, the section on Emergency medicine Volume 3, Section 33 at the end of the book takes a change of approach.

No longer do we have dry text, but lists, charts and diagrams systematically guide us through the management of a number of acute conditions from diabetic ketoacidosis and sickle cell crisis to heat stroke. It is pleasing that one of the four authors of this section is a director of an intensive care unit; he may make the text more appealing to anaesthetists.

Medical Oncology. T he Fifth edition has been rigorously revised and updated. The book is an authoritative resource on infectious diseases. The fourth edition on CD-ROM has the entire contents of the printed textbook, including figures and tables.

Looking under 'graft versus host disease' in the index one would be unaware that lungs can be involved although bronchiolitis obliterans does occur separately in the index and is well-covered in the text. Edited by two of the leading social work clinician-researchers in the US, this text serves as the definitive resource for practicing clinicians and fulfils the need for social work faculty who wish to complement general health care texts with information specific to palliative and end-of-life care.
