OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 5, 2005) - The best-selling medical guide Canadians have come to rely on has been completely revised and updated to offer the most authoritative and complete health information available anywhere.

Fully illustrated with hundreds of photographs and illustrations, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) Complete Home Medical Guide includes 70 Q&A charts covering important symptoms, their possible causes and what actions to take. Updated information is also included on the latest medication and treatment methods for over 700 key medical conditions including SARS, West Nile Virus and anthrax.

The Guide, published in collaboration with Dorling Kindersley, is an authoritative and user-friendly resource full of up-to-date medical information. It is the essential choice for Canadians who want to participate actively and effectively in their own health care.
