From The CriticsReviewer: Russell A. Baer, DDS (University of Chicago)
Description: This is a comprehensive book of medical emergencies seen by dental professionals. This is the fourth edition; the third was published in 1987.
Purpose: The purpose is to stimulate dental professionals to better manage medical emergencies. This book would be ideal as the textbook for a course or continuing education seminar in medical emergencies; it would be a valuable office reference as well.
Audience: The stated audience is any person in the dental team providing patient care. The book is more appropriate for the dentist or dental student. Stanley Malamed, author of the three previous editions, is considered the leading authority on this subject.
Features: This well-organized, usable reference book is organized according to clinical symptoms, and flow sheets are used to emphasize this approach. Many of the tables could be used on a daily basis in the dental office. The author has continued to use up-to-date references and tables. Billed as a chairside reference, it would best be used as a textbook for a course on medical emergencies.
Assessment: The author continues to keep one of the best textbooks in clinical dentistry current and extremely usable. This is a must-have book for all dental practitioners.
