More About This Textbook

Overview

Diseases of the ear make up a large part of primary practice and can be challenging to diagnose and treat, especially for clinicians whose knowledge and expertise in otology may be limited. Concise and easy-to-read, here is your guide to almost everything that can go wrong with the ears - a brief clinical encyclopedia of ear disease.

This book is based on the author's more than 25 years experience in a thriving ENT practice, and covers everything from proper equipment and examination methods, to anatomy and disorders of each region of the ear. The clear and succinct text is packed with valuable tools you can utilize in daily practice, and cuts through to important truths about ear symptoms, diagnoses, and treatment - information that is not always taught in medical training programs.

This title is part of Thieme's acclaimed Flexibook series of clinical and basic science pocket guidebooks, which are sold worldwide and have been translated into more than 20 languages.

Key features of this pocket reference:

  • Comprehensive: complete and sound advice on nearly every common and rare ear disease seen by primary care physicians
  • Concise: key facts communicated in 145 pages
  • Easy-to-read: bold print stresses diagnostic and treatment concepts, and highlighted text emphasizes summary paragraphs and clinically important points
  • Beautifully produced: over 40 full-color photographs and illustrations
  • Practical: includes a comprehensive glossary of terms as well as a top ten list of common clinical misjudgments and how to avoid them

Designed to be read from cover to cover, or as a reference when needed, this 145-page book is an essential professional tool - especially at a time when well-trained gatekeepers are crucial to high-quality healthcare. Here is the pocket guide anyone who treats or diagnoses ears and hearing - primary care physicians, family practitioners, pediatricians, otolaryngologists, audiologists, and more - needs to have at their disposal. Residents and students rotating through ENT will be amazed at the wealth of information provided in such a succinct text.
