Mind Maps in Surgery uses a concise and visually stimulating method, Mind Maps®, to teach the reader the main topics in surgery. Each Mind Map covers a particular topic, disease, or condition; and includes the various aspects of a surgical disorder such as its pathophysiology, etiology, symptoms and signs, investigations, differential diagnosis, and management. In addition to covering the major types of surgery, the book contains chapters on the management of acutely ill patients and surgical patients, which is of vital importance for the reader.
Instead of presenting the information in seemingly endless, lengthy text, the
book is thoughtfully and carefully structured so that it contains only the essential
knowledge. It is aimed especially at undergraduate medical students doing their
surgical rotations, as a wonderful study aid for their final exams. It is also
useful for surgical trainees working towards their membership exams, as well
as doctors and nurses in the surgical profession.
