Product Description: This new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Geriatric Medicine substantially improves on its predecessor. It is the definitive international reference book on an emerging and inescapable medical discipline. There are three new international editors, and many new contributors. Whereas the firstedition was designed to complement general textbooks of medicine, this edition stands alone as a reference on all aspects of the medical care of older persons. There is more detailed clinical information on every disease, and this information is given with reference to the changes that take placewith ageing, and the resultant appropriate guidance on management and prevention in older patients. There are major sections on common problems in older patients such as incontinence, falls, and delirium. The coverage of ethics, outcomes, legal issues, long-term institutional care, communication,the provision of services, community-orientated support services, and the contribution of non-medical specialists to theory and practice in the care of older persons has been strengthened. There are outstanding new sections on autonomic dysfunction, nutrition, back pain, measurement of quality of life, healthy life-expectancy, arterial disease, failure to thrive, sexuality, perioperative care, and special problems such as elder abuse and driving. There is also a section on usefulinformation, containing various tests and scales. The sections on stroke, memory, cardiovascular disease, the respiratory system, nephrology and the genitourinary system, and neurology and psychiatry, have been substantially revised and updated. The need to balance, for the individual patient, the potential for benefit from modern technology, with risks of ill-effects is central to the practice of medicine in an ageing society. Fortunately, there is a growing literature with evidence for the appropriate management of older persons. Thecontributors give clear guidance on management, based on a review of the available evidence and emphasizing where these data are limited; and all chapters have been edited by clinicians actively involved in the day-to-day problems of older people. The Oxford Textbook of Geriatric Medicine has an international perspective, with specialist contributors from nine countries. It will provide every physician involved in the care of older patients with a comprehensive resource on all the clinical problems they are likely to encounter, as well as onrelated psychological, philosophical, and social issues.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
