The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career. Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success. A one-volume text giving candidates complete preparation for the PACES exam within one portable volume 250 cases organised into the 5 stations of the PACES exam – respiratory and abdominal system, history taking, cardiovascular and nervous system, communication and ethics and skin, locomotion, eyes and endocrine systems Engaging question-and-answer approach at the end of each case – excellent preparation for the exam Boxed tips highlight vital information – helps identify what is most important to remember Produced in full colour throughout Colour coding for each station Many more illustrations added - now over 300 clinical photographs and line drawings in colour Many more cases added, bringing the number up to 250 - 50 per station History-taking and communication skills stations now revised so that they exactly mimic the requirements of the exam

The MRCP (PACES) is a challenging examination as it requires both in-depth knowledge and the ability to present the selected case concisely and coherently. This essential revision aid is designed to help candidates achieve both aims whilst simultaneously being compact enough for ward use, and comprehensive enough for self-study. The book incorporates the new Station 5 (brief clinical encounters), clinical information on the increasingly widespread use of biological therapies, a bank of clinical pictures, details of the latest investigations and management options, and questions reflecting both the standard and detail required for the exam and the new MRCP PACES marking structure. Each chapter has been reviewed by consultants within the specialty, many of whom are Royal College examiners. The cases, which mirror those most frequently encountered in the examination, are all set out in a standardised format, and include hints and tips as well as a summary of consolidated key learning points. Each case contains a section on presentation which will aid the candidate in perfecting this skill. Although most appropriate for MRCP (PACES) examination candidates, the book's clear structure and balance of detail and clarity make it useful reading for medical students and trainee physicians. It will also be an excellent resource for clinicians involved in teaching students and doctors. 'The style is succinct, not minimalist but sufficient. The presentation is fresh and logical. The authors have done an outstanding job in introducing the setting for the PACES examination and the expectations of the examiners.' - from the Foreword by Bryan Williams

Dr. John W. Lynn's remarkable and thorough compilation and annotation brings to life the history, the horrors, and the dissolution of Andersonville Prison. Comprised primarily of hundreds of eye-witness accounts, this book emphasizes the struggles of those who survived their incarceration and of those who did not. Never before in Civil War literature has any book about Andersonville stressed the 'sickness' of this human stockyard from a medically-trained perspective. Union prisoners died in droves from neglect, malnutrition, disease, and pestilence, and other maladies described herein. Dr. Lynn portrays, in moving detail, the prisoners' perceptions of their 800 paces from the train depot to the gates of the prison as entering the depths of Hell. The lack of provisions, medical supplies, food and the werewithal to prepare it, had not only a horrible effect upon the inmates but it frustrated the efforts of some of the prison's officials as well. Told in first-hand accounts which are linked together thematically, and in chronological order, this painstakingly researched volume, complete with dramatic photographs, is a one-of-a-kind effort to document and to analyze the inception, duration, and closure of this Confederate-run prison.
