Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry

Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry HANDBOOK+OF+MEDICINE+IN+PSYCHIATRY+PIC
practitioner today will welcome the Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry
as the first realistic, evidence-based overview of medicine for
psychiatrists in training or practice because it is
Written to address the lack of empirical data showing how the type of
medical knowledge acquired through traditional psychiatric residency
training can be used in the psychiatric setting.
Organized to reflect the realities confronting clinicians working in
self-standing inpatient psychiatric settings, where inadequate
histories, premature diagnostic closure, and a reluctance to perform
physical assessments contribute to underrecognized, misdiagnosed, and
suboptimally treated medical disorders in at least half of all
psychiatric patients.
Based on the findings of a retrospective analysis of internal medicine
evaluations requested for 1,001 patients (501 men and 500 women, ranging
from age 8 to 98) admitted in 2002 to a 208-bed urban private
psychiatric hospital, which found that most medical consultations
requested in a psychiatric hospital were due to a limited group of
symptoms, signs, and laboratory abnormalities—that is potential side
effects of psychotropic drugs (falls, hyperglycemia, hypotension,
hyponatremia, nausea, constipation, leucopenia), pain symptoms, and
respiratory and urinary tract infections.
Structured for easy reading and comprehension, with topics grouped in 14
sections according to a common feature, such as cardiac arrest,
abnormal vital signs, pain, signs of common infections, and respiratory
distress; 5 chapters that discuss essential features in clinical
presentation, differential diagnosis, risk stratification, and
assessment and management in the psychiatric setting.
Focused on the ways in which psychiatric disorders and their treatments
produce pathophysiologic changes and alter the classic presentation of
common and serious conditions.Intended to augment rather than replace
established print and electronic resources of medical knowledge, the
meticulously illustrated and referenced Handbook of Medicine in
Psychiatry offers an invaluable resource for clinicians today as they
pursue the complex practice of psychiatry in the 21st century
