OUP Oxford; 2nd Edition
The Head, Neck, and Dental Emergencies, 2nd Edition (PDF) offers the reader a pragmatic approach to the management and diagnosis of all emergent or urgent disorders that occur above the collar bones. The book focuses on the head, the neck, and the teeth. This manual features illustrations, brief comments, and images, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while retaining a high index of suspicion. Because emergency care needs to be quick and straightforward, the manual was written in this manner.
The new features included in this second edition are geared toward facilitating a speedier diagnosis. Each chapter is centered on a specific symptom and organized according to how the patients manifest themselves. At the beginning of each chapter is a set of quick-reference boxes that describe typical presentations and the causes of those presentations. Following those boxes is a set of tricks and recommendations on what to look for and what questions to ask the patient. Complete in every respect, the brand new second edition also includes two brand new chapters titled “The Throat” and “The Nose,” respectively.
It is condensed and gets right to the point, both of which are highly helpful for those who are studying medicine or dentistry. This ebook is a must have; because it is small enough to fit in a pocket, it is perfect for reading when traveling or while spending time in a medical facility. — Adham Chakhachiro, a Medical Student in his Third Year at the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London
An ebook with a very straightforward layout that is also highly detailed! It is clinically useful to individuals who are practicing medicine as well as medical students like myself, and it is easy to carry around with you wherever you go (particularly in hospitals). The logical style not only assisted me in finding the material I required in a very timely manner, but it is also one that I would strongly suggest to any student. — Jenny Nguyen; Department of Medicine; Imperial College London; Faculty of Medicine
