CURRENT: Practice Guidelines in Inpatient Medicine, 2018–2019 digests evidencebased guidelines into salient point-of-care applications, enabling physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical students to incorporate the advice of major professional societies and government agencies into the care of hospitalized adults. Each section outlines the initial assessment, acute management, and subsequent care for conditions commonly encountered in the hospital, putting relevant information at the busy clinician’s fingertips. The author is grateful to the contributors, a select group of teaching faculty and resident physicians from the Ventura County Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program, for conferring their expertise. Their knowledge of medicine and commitment to excellent care for all is inspiring, and will be the principal reason for any success the book enjoys. Acutely ill patients deserve consistent, high-quality care informed by the guidelines summarized in CURRENT: Practice Guidelines in Inpatient Medicine, 2018–2019. However, no guideline encompasses every scenario, and no handbook obviates the need for clinical training and critical analysis of the available evidence. The clinician’s experience and judgment and the patient’s unique circumstances and preferences will at times supersede the recommendations found herein. Though painstaking efforts have been made to accurately represent these recommendations and to find and correct errors and omissions, inaccuracies may remain. If you care to suggest an improvement or correct an error, please e-mail at EditorialServices@ mheducation.com.
