The aim of this new third edition of the Oxford Handbook of ENT and Head and Neck Surgery, like all other Oxford Handbooks, is to provide a compact, comprehensive, and easily accessible guide to all areas of the field.
The core text is based on an anatomical list of ear nose and throat diseases. There are separate sections on ENT examinations, investigations, common operations, ward care, and emergencies, as well as a chapter detailing the roles of other ENT health professionals. There is also a chapter on common methods of presentation, which acts a guide for dealing with patients as they present in clinical practice. This enables diagnosis based on symptoms, history, and relevant investigations, and also cross-references to more detailed information in individual anatomical chapters.
This edition also features a new chapter on the ENT specialty in the rest of the world, as well as an illustrated overview of flaps, expanded information on the ear, and new figures to aid understanding, making this Handbook an essential companion to all trainees and nurses specialising in ENT.
