CD-ROM - The Practice of Chinese Medicine

Giovanni Maciocia's hallmark book, THE PRACTICE OF CHINESE MEDICINE, hailed as "excellent" by The New England Journal of Medicine, has established itself as the most thorough work ever published in the West on this subject. In its newest CD-ROM format, it has become even better, providing immediate access to clear and practical guidance on diagnosing and treating patients and to an invaluable resource of over 150 case histories. In addition to the complete text and illustrations of Maciocia's work, 20 years of additional Medline abstracts for key journals in the field are also included. Using the software's powerful search capability you can swiftly pinpoint the key information you need to diagnose the full range of symptoms commonly seen in clinical practice - from headaches and insomnia through incontinence and influenza- and treat specific diseases using acupunture and Chinese herbal medicine.
