Herbal medicinal products are increasing in popularity in the developed world although there are many concerns about their quality, safety and efficacy. "Herbal Medicines" provides a comprehensive single source of scientifically rigorous, impartial information on over 150 of the most commonly used herbal medicinal products. This third edition has been extensively revised and updated. It aims to answer the questions raised for the healthcare professional by providing scientifically rigorous, impartial information on medical herbs.
At a time of great change in the technology and delivery of medical care, the timelessness and permanence of the non-technical aspects of medicine-the human side-are of profound value to patients and physicians alike. With more than 30 years of medical practice, teaching, advising, and mentoring medical students and undergraduates, Savett champions two premises: first, that the importance of physicians mastering the human side of medicine is as critical as learning its biology and technology; and second, that this can be taught. Attending to the human side refines diagnosis and treatment by recognizing the uniqueness of each patient's experience, and it enriches the experience for all those in the caring professions. Physicians who have always put their patients' interests first and never compromised their professional values have preserved their identity, vitality, and enthusiasm as caring doctors. This is a book about what keeps the practice of medicine stimulating: not fascinating cases, but fascinating people and relationships, the best reasons to enter medicine.
Learning the human side of medicine, asserts Savett, will help attract talented and compassionate people to the field. Full of stories and lessons, IThe Human Side of MedicineR is important reading for those considering a career in medicine and related professions, those already practicing-and patients.
The most widely used and highly regarded textbook and reference of emergency medicine -- Endorsed by the American College of Emergency Physicians
"Collectively, they have once again produced an excellent text that manages to cover the broad scope of emergency medicine while remaining an easily readable and practical resource....Last, for the inevitable comparison of this current edition of Tintinalli's Emergency Medicine with other available emergency medicine textbooks available: in my opinion, Tintinalliâ€™s still comes out on top. It is more concise and easier to read than some, yet it covers the breadth of emergency medicine practice more comprehensively than othersâ€¦.Just as previous editions did, the seventh presents all of the most pertinent and up-to-date information in a well-organized format that is comprehensive yet easy to read. That and many of the attractive new features in this current edition will ensure its place on my bookshelf for years to come."â€”JAMA
