The rapidly growing field of Hospital Medicine is the topic of this volume in the popular Secrets Series®. It offers students, residents, and practicing hospitalists a readily accessible, evidence-based guide to the optimal care of hospitalized patients. A new, two-color page layout, a more portable size, and a list of the “Top 100 Secrets” in hospital medicine help readers to better meet the challenges they face today. And, at no extra charge, purchasers also receive online access to the complete contents of the text via Elsevier’s innovative STUDENTConsult.com website. Readers will still find all of the features they rely on the Secret Series for—a question- and -answer format, lists, mnemonics, and tables and an informal tone that make reference fast and easy.
