Comprehensive Handbook of Clinical Spanish

¿Tiene usted dolor abdominal?
¿Tiene usted problemas durmiendo?
¿Se examina usted su respiración cada día?

Communicate more effectively with your Spanish-speaking patients! Use this pocket-sized guide to quickly translate the scenarios you face every day-from admission through discharge-into questions that require only "Yes" or "No" responses.

Deliver high-quality care in the ER, office, clinic, or hospital! An easy-to-reference format groups the clinical questions into three categories

  • Comprehensive history-taking questions for adult, obstetric, pediatric, and geriatric patients.
  • Active medical problem questions for chronic, disease-based management.
  • Symptom-based questions for reaching a differential diagnosis.
  • Spanish pronunciation guidelines appear in the front of the book.
  • Multiple translations reflect regi.onal and dialectical differences in usage and spelling.

Commonly used charts on the inside back and front covers include the Wong-Baker pain scale and a body outline for indicating pain.
