A familiar, compact primer on the essentials of surgical diagnosis and treatment, including neurosurgery, urology, and gynecology. Much of the contents, particularly that on diagnosis, overlaps with similar handbooks for internal medicine. The section on cardiopulmonary resuscitation, trauma, and minor surgical procedures makes this primer suitable as a compact, inexpensive reference for physicians in nonsurgical fields, who are temporarily expected to deal with emergencies, such as in summer camps or on wilderness trips.
