This easy-to-use manual is arranged by
symptoms (e.g. vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy). Because this symptom-based
approach is different from most medical texts, which are arranged by disease, a
corresponding diagnosis table is provided. Links have been used extensively to
facilitate navigation between symptoms and diagnoses. The clinical action steps
are based on clinical assessment with limited reliance on laboratory or other
tests and most can be performed in a variety of clinical settings.
