Part physical examination primer, part differential diagnosis tool, DeGowin's Diagnostic Examination takes you a step beyond elementary physical diagnosis.

DeGowin's covers all physical examination techniques and procedures, but this highly practical point-of-care guide goes further, focusing on the meaning of signs and symptoms. It also shows you how to catalog clinical findings resulting from the physical examination--and order them into a differential diagnosis.
