“The only thing more satisfying than finding clues to a crime and tracking down the bad guy is listening to a patient’s symptoms and tracking down the disease causing those symptoms. Fortunately, there’s a logic to medicine, and I am going to lead you through a step-by-step approach that will allow you to practice your own diagnostic skills, so long as you don’t try to put “M.D.” after your name.” …Sheldon Margulies, M.D.
Symptoms are what the patient complains of, and the symptoms that first bring a patient to the doctor are the “presenting symptoms.”
Diagnosing the disease causing the patient’s presenting symptoms is a two-step process. First you must identify where in the body the patient’s presenting symptoms are coming from and then the disease causing those symptoms – “where” and then, “why”.
In Fascinating Anatomy & Physiology, you will learn 14 different organ systems, defined by the anatomic structures a specialist in that organ system would diagnosis and treat. The purpose of this course is to be a prerequisite to Fascinating Logic of Medicine. Currently the course consists of lessons and scripts. There are no quizzes.
