Bronchial Asthma do solely from Ghai(Pedia)

Harrison gives much imp 2 pathophysiology which is less imp 4m exam point of view. Unfortunately, we have to think 4m xam point of view.

Management is given good in Rx. But not drugs and doses. Njoy!

To work out the rate take 300 and divide by the distance between two QRS complexes. Normal is 60 - 100 beats per minute in the average .
• 6 squares = 300/6 = 50bpm (bradycardia)
• 5 squares = 300/5 = 60bpm
• 4 squares = 300/4 = 75bpm
• 3 squares = 300/3 = 100bpm
• 2 squares = 300/2 = 150bpm (tachycardia

one shud study kundu after he has acquired concepts from a good text book like kumar clarke or davidson....otherwise u will be left confused......and u will forget everything that u study.....this happend to me a few days ago


usha21

Hi Amborishnath! Don't confuse others.
Have you seen the new 6th edition of Kundu's? It is marvelous and uncomparable book on clinical medicine.
I think that kundu's, Part I book should be kept at the bedside & then to study individual case. The book is an asset for every medical student. I am deeply addicted to it like many others. The book deals the global as well as Indian perspectives.
Moreover, Kundu's Part II book is like a story book which should be ventured by every student. It is a wonderful book on ECG, X-rays, emergency medicine....
Macled is too good also.


amborishnath


6th edition in the market? .....gotta look for it...............................


i felt kundu is a bit disorganised........like examination of nervous system ....most of the important things are given at the back of the book....reflex, gait, cranial nerve testing.....also the auscultation of chest, percussion, examination of liver and spleen.....its not given at proper places........u need to flip thru the index....while searching for a particular topic........


but overall....... its a very good book if u want to pass the exam...... very good for people who have got a verbal memory and love to mug up and gulp down every thing without feeling the taste.....

having said that.......i must add that......its hard to find a substitute for Kundu..........its a must read book for all.......only u need to be a bit more sincere with other standard text books like davidson, kumar n clarke , harrison


usha21
Aim MD Medicine

Amborishnath, you are absolutely correct.

I repeat you that it is an unparallel book & there is no substitute of this kind of book.

The style of presentation is different from others, student-oriented, science-bound with lots of explanation to questions peeping in mind of us. I do not think that it is disorganised but it it looks more organised than others. The things, though more important, if given in back pages are meant for us to read in totality. In the preface, the author reminded about 'index' reading.

Every book has its sweet and bitter parts. I agree with you that there is no harm to read Kundu blending with Davidson or Kumar & Clark.

I think Dr. Kundu has one fault in his part for being a petty Indian author.....

i have been using both along with hutchison (as my primary) ....so hutcison is the best for clinical kills and correct methods while kundu is exam oriented and should not be missed ......you have to refer to both

i completely agree this is one of the best clinical books by an indian author along with others like das for surgery


here i would like to thank amborishnath for recommending it to me ........ icon_smile.gif


usha21

So, everybody agrees with me that Kundu's is the best in totality.

I also request my friends to go through Arup Kundu's Part II book on 'Bedside Clinics in Medicine'. The ECG, x-rays, data analysis ....are superb & unparellel.

I think that Allagappan is a mere textbook in Medicine. and not at all a clinical medicine book. If one textbook has to be read, it is Davidson or Kumar & clark (obviously not Harrison at UG level).

Medicine is vast as well as endless........so, there is no end of it. We all UGs should be economic & professional in our study too, keeping in mind to aquire the basic knowledge.

Kundu Medicine & Das surgery are now 'Gita' for us.

A good news for all medicos like me. Kundu's new Part I's 6th edition & Part II's 5th edition have come out in the market with a new look. I have gone thro' both of them. Marvelous for passing out as well as gathering knowledge. Part I photographs are really mind blowing.

I'm reading Macled & Kundu wholeheartedly. Few rubbish books have been published by Jaypee's greedy Publisher which are nothing but copy of Kundu's. Nobody should read unauthentic books. Our time is short & we should utilise every second by economic reading. Wrong informations by fake books (like Jaypee's) should not penetrate our brain.

Selective reading of Kumar & Clark is really helpful. Harrison is Michel Tyson to me. I think that we should not miss a single clinical class which actually gives a long-lasting memory of the case.

Macleod & Hutchison's are great & time-tested clinical medicine books. But Hutchison's is quite big & Macleod's is too-much algorithm-oriented and a bit clumsy --- all are my opinion & one may not agree with me though I read both the books.
But I think that Kundu's Bedside medicine is a magic book with wonderful items to pass in exam with ease. Sometime, it hypnotizes the reader. My friends in Nepal, Srilanka, China read this book as 'Gita' in Medicine. It is exam-oriented, student-friendly, science-bound, & written point-wise which is easy to cram. Over & above, I have heard that all the teachers in Medicine read this book, & so some questions are common in final exam........ Moreover, if Kundu's is punched with Clinical posting class notes, it will be unputdownable. I can not imagine to pass without Kundu's. It is a must.
Other so-called books available in Indian market are either not-worth or copy of these renowned books.
