Welcome to Pulse Reference

Pulse Reference is the new product from Pulse designed to help GPs make sense of patient presentations. Based on the best-selling book Symptom Sorter, it is written and designed by GPs and gives a symptom-based approach to clinical problem solving. The resource covers the vast majority of symptoms seen in primary care. Each symptom is organised into common, occasional or rare differentials, with distinguishing features, and symptom management is prompted through suggestions for investigations, top tips and red flags.

This was launched in September 2022, and we will continuously keep all content up to date.
