Companion to Clinical Pathophysiology Made Ridiculously Simple. Understanding is key to clinical reasoning. This program provides a logical approach to the understanding of the “differential diagnosis” of disease, specifically common laboratory abnormalities and patient symptoms and signs. Each clinical problem in the program is organized around two main questions:
“Where is the problem?” – namely, where in the anatomy or chain of physiological reactions does the problem lie? “What is the cause?” namely, having localized “Where is the problem?” – what specific disease has caused the problem at that location?
Most diagnoses will be shown to be classified according to the mnemonic “VINDICATE ME.”
