Presented in a systematic and highly entertaining
fashion, twelve lessons cover some of the most commonly
encountered situations. These include the family clinic,
the emergency room, appendicitis, the social chat, pregnancy,
family planning, pelvic inflammatory disease and urinary tract
infection, depression, children with asthma, patients with angina,
explaining a venipuncture and a spinal tap, and patients with
shortness of breath. Each lesson closes with a bilingual interview
that includes vocabulary and grammar introduced in that
lesson. A guide to the medical history and physical examination
appears in English and Spanish in the appendix.
Excellent in the classroom or for independent learning,
the Manual will enable health care providers better
to understand and supply the needs of Spanish-speaking patients.
