Practical Otolaryngology for Junior Doctors

This book is designed to guide the junior doctor through an Otolaryngology (ENT) rotation from the first referrals to the practical procedures carried out on a daily basis. ENT departments throughout the world will have different ways of managing particular conditions; however, this book will give the user a framework to deliver good quality clinical care and develop skills with confidence wherever one is working. All information is presented in an easy to digest format to give a handy reference guide on how to manage the hugely varied conditions that are dealt with by Otolaryngology. This makes the book an ideal companion to keep in an on-call bag or clinic room. The advice provided in this book is practical and very clear, with good explanations about simple procedures for settling difficult situations. Information is also provided about looking after patients on the ward following common ENT/Head and Neck operations. An ENT junior doctor should feel more confident quickly after checking through this book for advice, as well as knowing when to escalate a problem to a more knowledgeable senior doctor, if the patient is not improving.

"This book will be an excellent resource for all junior doctors just starting their first post in ENT surgery, often in a busy department with very little, if any, previous ENT experience whilst in medical school". Mr. Derek Skinner, FRCS Ec, FRCS (Orl) Eng, FCSHK Director of Education, ENT UK.
