'An astonishingly complex and moving literary detective story that made me sob but also snort with laughter. It's the sort of novel you have to start rereading the minute you've finished it' Guardian The first Jackson Brodie novel: literary crime from the prizewinning, number-one bestselling author of Big Sky and Transcription. Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance. Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, Jackson attempts to unravel three disparate case histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything is connected...
These histories reveal not only the working of the unconscious in paranoid and neurotic cases, but also the agility of Freud's own mind and his method for treating the disorders.

Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy is a succinct guide that facilitates a case-based learning approach to cardiopulmonary care. This one-of-a-kind text combines evidence-based assessment and management skills and well-thought-out cases of typical presentations of pulmonary and cardiovascular conditions. This combined approach helps students and clinicians learn meaningful skills in a clinically relevant manner. Two primary components present in Clinical Management Notes and Case Histories in Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy are notes on cardiopulmonary assessment and management, and case histories involving respiratory and cardiovascular conditions commonly viewed by physical therapists. Accompanying the notes are thought-provoking questions and problems that enable the reader to establish a foundation of core concepts. The presentation of case histories further facilitates the development of integral skills and enables the reader to integrate those core concepts into a clinical setting. Also, question and answer guides accompany the patient profiles. The two-fold evidence and case based learning approach used by authors W. Darlene Reid, BMR(PT), PhD and Frank Chung, BSc(PT), MSc allows for a more engaging experience. Students are able to learn and develop skills to prepare them for their professional transition while clinicians can use the text as a reference tool. A Few of the Cardiopulmonary Assessment Topics: Physical Examinations Chest Radiology Pulmonary Function Testing EKG Interpretation A Few of the Cardiopulmonary Management Topics: Clinical Decision Making and Setting Treatment Goals Mobilization and Exercise Training Breathing Exercises Medical and Surgical Interventions Case Histories Include: Brief history Description of physical presentation Arterial blood values, chest x-rays, EKG results and/or pulmonary function report
Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees in cardiology, Oxford Case Histories in Cardiology contains 50 well-structured, peer-reviewed cases gathered from the Oxford Hospitals, comprehensively covering the various disorders of the cardiac system. Each case history is followed by questions on important aspects of the diagnosis, interpretation of investigations, and management. The answers are accompanied by a detailed discussion, including the differential diagnosis where relevant and other clinically important aspects of the condition. The book contains numerous illustrations of echocardiographic, radiographic and electrocardiographic data. The list of cases by diagnosis and category according to the cardiology curriculum from the JRCPTB and the extensive index allows the book to be used for revision and reference. The book will be of particular use to post-membership trainees who are preparing for specialty knowledge based assessments in cardiology and acute general medicine in the UK and Europe, and will also be of interest to those who wish to improve their skills in diagnosis and management of a broad range of cardiac diseases.
Oxford Case Histories in Lung Cancer contains a comprehensive selection of 40 clinical cases that reflects the multidisciplinary approach to the management of lung cancer. Written by authors specialising in respiratory medicine, oncology, pathology, radiology, palliative care, and thoracic surgery, the cases cover both incidents commonly faced in clinical practice, or those that pose particular challenges. Each case consists of a brief case history, followed by questions and answers to discuss common questions arising during the management of lung cancer. The answers are based on the best available evidence from the latest research, and should help optimise the diagnostic pathways available to patients. The text is also extensively illustrated with over 75 CT and MRI scans and X-ray images to help the reader develop interpretative skills. The book may also be used in multidisciplinary sessions to help make arguments for patient care decisions based on real-life scenarios. This is an essential new resource for both trainees and recently appointed consultants who will work with patients who have lung cancer, specialist nurses, and lung cancer MDT co-ordinators.
Aligned to the topics within the Intercollegiate Surgical Programme (ISCP) curriculum, this case-based volume covers the common clinical presentations encountered across general surgery. With its clear 'elective' and 'emergency' structure and its question-and-answer format, it offers both a comprehensive overview of general surgical training and evidence-based discussions of specific subspecialties. Oxford Case Histories in General Surgery covers upper gastrointestinal/HPB, colorectal, breast, endocrine and emergency surgery. Each section includes clinically relevant images and detailed descriptions of the radiological and pathological features. The individual case histories outline the key essentials for investigation, diagnosis and management in a wide variety of clinical scenarios. As a part of the Oxford Case Histories series, this book is an important educational tool for those embarking on surgical rotations at final year undergraduate and postgraduate foundation level. It is also an essential reference for the surgical care practitioner and early years core surgical trainee.
Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees, Oxford Case Histories in Anaesthesia contains over 60 clinical cases compiled by expert consultants. The cases comprehensively cover all sub-specialties and a broad range of variations that occur in normal and abnormal physiology, pharmacology and pathology, as well as patient age. The cases have been selected with reference to the revised Curriculum for a Certificate of Completion of Training in Anaesthesia set by the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Each case begins with clear learning outcomes and is mapped to the CCT matrix, greatly aiding those revising for the Final FRCA examination. The cases are presented with a background to the subject area, and a summary of the history and examination findings with relevant investigation results. This is followed by several questions on clinically important aspects of the case with answers and detailed discussion, particularly of the differential management options. Further reading at the end of each case aids future study. As well as those preparing for the Final FRCA, this book will also be of interest for post-fellowship trainees on specialty attachments and those who occasionally have to anaesthetize out with their normal field of practice, for example in subspecialty emergencies or whilst awaiting retrieval teams to arrive for transfer to tertiary care centres.
