About this deal

Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine is the world's most trusted clinical medicine text—and a superb resource for learning the art and science of clinical reasoning. Once again, the editors have assembled an impressive array of individual chapter authors for the work. Description For internal medicine specialists, Harrison's has been the go-to reference on the current understanding of pathophysiology for decades.

This new edition is fully updated with timely new chapters and essential updates across the spectrum of internal medicine. Improved understanding of how diseases develop and progress not only promotes better decision-making and higher value care, but also makes for fascinating reading and improved retention.

Thorn, who was editor of the first seven editions of the book and editor in chief of the eighth edition. Discover what's inside Harrison's 20th edition with this at-a-glance look at the new features of the leading authority on applied pathophysiology and clinical medicine. If your institution subscribes to this resource, and you don't have an Access Profile, please contact your library's reference desk for information on how to gain access to this resource from off-campus.

Important and timely new chapters such as Promoting Good Health, LGBT Health, Systems of Healthcare, Approach to Medical Consultation, Pharmacogenomics, Antimicrobial Resistance, Worldwide Changes in Patterns of Infectious Diseases, Neuromyelitis Optica, and more offer the very latest, definitive perspectives on must-know topics in medical education and practice. Understanding the role of inflammation in cardiovascular disease, the precise mechanisms of immune deficiency in HIV/AIDS, prions and misfolded proteins in neurodegenerative diseases, and obesity as a predisposition to diabetes are just a few examples of how this edition provides essential pathophysiology information for health professionals. Unlike most textbooks (but exactly like all the thickest medical ones), Harrison's is really a series of smaller articles, arranged in chapter form. Harrison s summarizes important new basic science developments, such as the role of mitochondria in programmed and necrotic cell death, the immune system s role in cancer development and treatment, the impact of telomere shortening in the aging and disease processes, and the role of the microbiome in health and disease.Assessment This new edition continues the outstanding history of this book as the leading comprehensive authority in internal medicine. From the first screech of his electric guitar upsetting musicians at a folk festival to his writing and paintings, Bob Dylan has risen to become a seminal force in American popular culture.

It is very well organized in thousands of articles on all diseases you can ever imagine,also system reviews and latest developments in the field add so much to it! The clinical practice is very much American, but the general principles are relevant to practitioners anywhere in the world. I am very eager to give Harrison's five-stars, because in most other respects, it really deserves it.Disease-oriented chapters reflect the current state of the science, from cardiology to infectious diseases to endocrinology to neurology and more.

New chapters added include "Systems Biology in Health and Disease," "The Human Microbiome," "The Biology of Aging," and "Neuropsychiatric Illnesses in War Veterans. Harrison’s summarizes important new basic science developments, such as the role of mitochondria in programmed and necrotic cell death, the immune system’s role in cancer development and treatment, the impact of telomere shortening in the aging and disease processes, and the role of the microbiome in health and disease.The full content of the 21 st edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine is now online at AccessMedicine and AccessPharmacy.
