Description
Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
I have a vivid memory of a medical assistant in charge of a health centre in a developing country, with a staff of about 10 health workers, some two hours' journey from the capital. He told me that he had not been visited by a physician for at least a year and that he had no means of communication because there was no telephone or radio and the only vehicle had broken down some months ago. Asked what he felt he needed most, he replied A book. This surprised me at first, but then he showed me a child whom he quite correctly considered to have malaria. I know that I should give a reduced dose of chloroquine but I cannot remember how to work out the dose, he said. The dose he had been using was about one fifth of the proper dose. If I had a book I could look it up and get it right.
