Head, Neck, and Dental Emergencies, Second Edition provides the reader with a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of all urgent or emergent problems that occur above the collar bones.

Emergency care must be simple and quick so this guide comprises short notes, diagrams, and photographs, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while maintaining a high index of suspicion.

New features for this 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 each chapter list common presentations and their causes, followed by tips and tricks on what to look for and what questions to ask the patient. Fully comprehensive, this new edition also has two new chapters on 'The Nose' and 'The Throat'.
