Head, Neck, and Dental Emergencies, 2nd Edition (PDF) provides the reader with a practical approach to the management and diagnosis of all emergent or urgent problems that occur above the collar bones. Emergency care must be quick and simple so this guide comprises diagrams, short notes, and photographs, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while maintaining a high index of suspicion.
New features for this 2nd edition are aimed at assisting a rapid diagnosis. Chapters are symptom-based and structured around how the patients present. Quick-reference boxes at the start of every chapter list common presentations and their causes, followed by tricks and tips on what to look for and what questions to ask the patient. Fully comprehensive, this new second edition also has 2 new chapters on ‘The Throat’ and ‘The Nose’.
It is concise and straight to the point, which is extremely useful for medical students and dental students. Overall this ebook is a must have, it is pocket sized which makes it ideal to read on the go or whilst on a hospital placement. — Adham Chakhachiro, 3rd Year Medical Student, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London
A very clearly formatted and comprehensive ebook! It is easy to carry around on the go (especially in hospitals) and is clinically relevant to those practicing and also medical students like myself. The logical format also helped me find information I needed very quickly and I would highly recommend it to any student! — Jenny Nguyen, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London
