From Library Journal:
Basic information about medical conditions can help older patients gain a better understanding of their own health and participate actively in healthcare. By being medically well informed, they can differentiate symptoms that are part of the normal aging process from those that signal illness. This handbook is a compendium of symptoms, diagnostic procedures, treatments, causes, and preventative measures for a variety of disorders that affect people over the age of 50: cancer, hearing loss, depression, insomnia. The text--prepared by Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in cooperation with health organizations such as the American Heart Association, the American Academy of Dermatology, and the National Cancer Institute--is authoritative, clearly written, and illustrated with drawings and diagrams. Emphasizing patient participation, the book includes tips on finding a physician and hospital, descriptions of medical specialties, and a state-by-state list of teaching hospitals. There is also a directory of health information organizations. More detailed than H. Winter Griffith's Complete Guide to Symptoms, Illness and Surgery for People Over 50 ( LJ 6/15/92), this manual is highly recommended.
