Medical men are, as a class, very much too busy to take stock of singular situations or dramatic events. Thus it happens that the ablest chronicler of their experiences in our literature was a lawyer. A life spent in watching over death-beds--or over birth-beds which are infinitely more trying--takes something from a man's sense of proportion, as constant strong waters might corrupt his palate. The overstimulated nerve ceases to respond. Ask the surgeon for his best experiences and he may reply that he has seen little that is remarkable, or break away into the technical. But catch him some night when the fire has spurted up and his pipe is reeking, with a few of his brother practitioners for company and an artful question or allusion to set him going. Then you will get some raw, green facts new plucked from the tree of life.
This new third edition of A Bibliography of Medical and Biomedical Biography details readily available sources of information in the English language on significant figures in the history of medicine and the biomedical sciences. Archival collections are also noted and a representative selection of general and specialized histories is included. This new edition features more than 1300 new entries, plus updates and amendments to previous entries. Also included, as far as possible, are the names of individuals recorded in Morton and Moore's Chronology of Medicine and Related Sciences (Ashgate, 1997). This bibliography remains an essential guide to the life and works of individuals who have contributed to the development of medicine and the biomedical sciences.
Encompassing twenty-four clinically important and frequently encountered infectious diseases, the text provides all the necessary background and the most up-to-date treatment of the microbes that cause diseases in humans. Each fully illustrated case study is introduced with a patient history, differential diagnosis, clinical clues, laboratory data, pathogenesis, treatment, and prevention. Presented as unknowns, the cases challenge readers to create a differential diagnosis just as they would in practice, including noninfectious causes that could present similar clinical findings.
