Summary

This book presents the first evidence-based casebook for hospitalists and other hospital-based physicians, associated staff, and trainees. Each clinical chapter concludes with practical "pearls" for application to the user's own practice, while a free CD contains all images and case summaries in PowerPoint files. Based on and expanded from the wildly popular Clinical Care Conundrum (CCC) series in the Journal of Hospital Medicine, this attractive new volume combines high-quality images and text to form an indispensible reference and study text for the wards or the classroom.
