Kate Dimock Developmental Editor: Anne Snyder Publishing Services Managers: There is even a new chapter on examination of patients in the intensive care unit, an excellent example of how traditional physical examination and modern technology work together. I am indebted to many investigators who contributed extra information not included in their published work. These include Dr.
Waldo de Mattos who provided his original data on patients with chronic obstructive lung disease , Dr. Aisha Lateef who provided raw data from her study on rela- tive bradycardia and dengue , Dr.
Colin Grissom who supplied additional information on his technique of capillary refill time , Dr. LeGal who answered questions about the modified Geneva score , Dr. Chiche who provided additional in- formation regarding the correct technique of passive leg elevation , Dr. Torres- Russotto who described the correct technique for the finger rub test , and Dr.
Kalantri who helped me understand the physical findings of pleural effusion.
Through the efforts of these and other investigators, physical examina- tion remains an essential clinical skill, one that complements the advanced technology of modern medicine and one vital to good patient care. We have a wonderfully rich tradition of physical diagnosis, and my hope is that this book will help square this tradition, now almost 2 centuries old, with the realities of modern diagnosis, which often rely more on tech- nologic tests such as clinical imaging and laboratory testing.
The tension between physical diagnosis and technologic tests has never been greater. Having taught physical diagnosis for 20 years, I frequently observe medical students downloading textbooks of physical diagnosis during their preclinical years, to study and master traditional physical signs, but then neglecting or even discarding this knowledge during their clinical years, after observing that modern diagnosis often takes place at a distance from the bedside.
Disregard for physical diagnosis also pervades our residency programs, most of which have formal x-ray rounds, pathology rounds, microbiology rounds, and clinical conferences addressing the nuances of laboratory tests.
