The Johns Hopkins Medical Handbook explains in great depth the 100 major medical disorders that most affect the lives of adult men and women. Cancer, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, glaucoma, atherosclerosis, and impotence are all carefully and thoroughly discussed in this comprehensive volume. The Handbook provides the background that you need to understand the effects of each of these, and other, disorders, then covers the diagnostics and treatments currently in use, adding the benefit of the most recent findings available. With clear, concise language to prepare you for consultations with your doctor, a clean, easy-to-read lay-out, some 70 beautifully rendered illustrations, and a comprehensive index, the Johns Hopkins Medical Handbook places the latest medical knowledge within easy reach. A unique Directory, also included in the Handbook, guides you as you seek treatment, information, and support. The Directory gives you the names, addresses, and phone numbers of America's teaching hospitals, health information organizations, government health agencies, and self-help groups. It also provides practical advice on how best to find an expert medical specialist; the hospital that is right for your needs; and the most reliable health information organizations and support groups. The hospital listings are even cross-referenced by disorder to make the right one for you easier to find. A powerful source of knowledge. And more powerful still when you consider that the Handbook combines the resources of The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions with those of the nation's top health information organizations. The American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Lung Association, and the National Cancer Institute are just a few of the organizations that have cooperated with Johns Hopkins in providing material for the Handbook. No medical reference is more authoritative or puts you in touch with so many resources.
