Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry provides psychiatrists and psychiatric residents and nurses with detailed, practical guidelines for the recognition and management of medical issues of patients in psychiatric hospitals and mental health facilities. For the second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated and offers expanded coverage of life-threatening adverse reactions to psychotropic drugs, metabolic emergencies, and risk assessment for medical deterioration in psychiatric settings. This information is of critical importance, as at least 50% of psychiatric patients have significant medical disorders that contribute to their poor quality of life and decreased life span. Indeed, clinical medical experience obtained during psychiatric residency may seem distant to psychiatrists confronted with seriously ill patients. The book represents a significant contribution to the resources available to physicians who deliver care to our most complex patients. Comprehensive and structured for maximum utility at short notice, Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry provides the medical knowledge and practical strategies clinicians must have to deliver quality care to patients with serious psychiatric disorders and complicated medical issues.2011. make voluntary movements.
