Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed: A Review by Jackson Traductor Lu

Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine is one of the most authoritative and comprehensive textbooks on internal medicine. The 18th edition, published in 2011, covers the latest advances and evidence-based practices in the field. It is written by a team of experts from various specialties and institutions, and edited by Dan L. Longo, Anthony S. Fauci, Dennis L. Kasper, Stephen L. Hauser, J. Larry Jameson, and Joseph Loscalzo.

In this article, I will review some of the key features and contents of this edition, and share my personal experience and opinion as a medical student who used it as a reference for my studies. I will also compare it with other popular textbooks on internal medicine, such as Cecil Medicine and Goldman-Cecil Medicine.

Features and Contents

Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed consists of two volumes, with a total of 4012 pages and 57 sections. The first volume covers general topics, such as cardinal manifestations and presentation of diseases, genomics, infectious diseases, disorders of the immune system, oncology and hematology, rheumatology, endocrinology and metabolism, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, critical care medicine, renal and genitourinary disease, gastrointestinal disease, diseases of the liver and biliary system, neurology, poisoning, drug overdose and chemical exposure. The second volume covers special topics, such as disorders of the skin and connective tissue, musculoskeletal disorders, sports medicine and physical therapy, pain management and palliative care, geriatrics, environmental medicine and global health issues.

Each section consists of several chapters that provide detailed information on the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various diseases and conditions. The chapters are well-organized and easy to follow, with clear headings and subheadings. The text is accompanied by numerous tables, figures, algorithms and color illustrations that enhance the understanding of the concepts. There are also references to relevant literature and websites for further reading.

One of the strengths of Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed is its emphasis on evidence-based medicine. The authors cite the best available evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses and systematic reviews to support their recommendations and guidelines. They also highlight the level of evidence (A to D) and the strength of recommendation (strong to weak) for each intervention or diagnostic test. This helps the readers to evaluate the quality and applicability of the evidence to their own practice.

Another strength of Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed is its integration of basic science with clinical medicine. The authors explain the molecular mechanisms and genetic factors underlying various diseases and disorders. They also discuss the implications of these findings for diagnosis and treatment. This helps the readers to appreciate the scientific basis of medicine and to keep up with the rapid advances in biomedical research.

Personal Experience and Opinion

I used Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed as a reference for my internal medicine clerkship and exams. I found it to be very useful and informative. It covered almost all the topics that I needed to know for my clinical rotations and assessments. It also helped me to prepare for my board exams by providing comprehensive reviews of core concepts and high-yield facts.

I liked the style and format of Harrison's Principles Of Internal Medicine 18th Ed. It was easy to read and understand. It was also well-illustrated and visually appealing. I especially liked the summary boxes at the end of each chapter that highlighted the key points and take-home messages.

I also appreciated the online access that came with
