This second edition of a best-selling Oxford Medical Handbook provides a comprehensive guide to the practice of ENT and head and neck surgery in a concise, practical, and easily accessible format. For use on the ward or for revision purposes, this new edition is organised anatomically and each section provides a summary of the essential approach to a specific presenting complaint. Quick access chapters are included detailing emergency conditions and their acute
management. This new edition includes expanded sections on anatomy, paediatrics, drugs, practical and surgical procedures, and emergencies. There are new chapters covering ENT manifestations in HIV/AIDS and sleep disorders. Still the only pocket-sized reference of ENT available, this handbook is unique in
offering diagnostic flowcharts which guide readers based on specific sets of symptoms. Patient-centred and practical, this book represents a more accurate experience for those typically faced with ENT and head and neck surgery in clinical practice.

Review quote

This handy volume, also for the individual plastic and reconstructive surgeon, is a very practical, didactic, and comprehensive guide. * European Journal of Plastic Surgery * ...a concise, clinically relevant overview of the speciality that would serve any ear, nose and throat junior well, particularly in the run up to examinations. Perhaps this book could be thought of more as a timely replacement to that other seminal text, the revision favourite Key Topics. * P. Jani and T Wilson, ENT Dept, Cambridge University Hospital *
