Libros de Medicina en PDF
NMS Psychiatry
We are already a decade into the twenty-first century and the scientific basis of psychiatry continues to expand. New medications have been developed for the treatment of individuals with schizophrenia, mood disorders, and severe anxiety disorders. Focused psychotherapeutic techniques have been proven as effective treatments.

Because of the importance of evidence-based medical practice, scientifically based practice guidelines developed by the American Psychiatric Association are now the norminstead of the exception. These guidelines, as well as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition, text revision (DSM-IV-TR), have been used extensively in the preparation of this book.
In this sixth edition of NMS Psychiatry, each chapter as well as the drug appendix has been updated to include the latest medications and treatment protocols. New chapters have been added on the emerging fields of emergency and geriatric psychiatry. In addition, we have continued to revise, update, and add new questions to each chapter and to the comprehensive examination to help students prepare for National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) subject examinations as well as the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 2.
