The Vademecum series includes subjects generally not covered in other handbook series, especially many technology-driven topics that reflect the increasing influmce of t^hnology in clinical medicine.

The name chosen for this comprehensive medical handbook series is V^emecum, a Latinword that roughly m^ans "to carry along". In theMicdlle Ages, traveling clerics carri^l pocket-sized books, excerpts of the carefully transcribe canons, known as Vademecum. In the !9th century a m^ical publisher in Germany, Samuel Karger, called a series of portable m^ical books Vademecum.

The Lances Bioscience Vademecum books are intended to be used both in the training of physicians and the care of patients, by medical studmts, mrfical house staff and practicing physicians. Vfe hope you will find them a valuable re^urce.
