ABC of Ear Nose and Throat 6th Edition PDF
Thirty years ago Stephen Lock, then Editor of the British Medical Journal, asked me(HL) to produce a series of articles for the journal. Subsequently these were published as the First Edition of this book (1981). He wrote of the importance of our specialty ‘‘counting for a substantial fraction of all consultations in general practice’’ and emphasised their economic importance. He said that the work was ‘‘collected together to provide the busy clinician with a practical, reliable source for these common problems’’. Since that time the specialty of ENT has expanded, diagnostics have improved and treatment of many of diseases and disorders has changed, but the majority of patients seen in General Practice can be reassured by an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management advice. However, some patients who present with ‘‘minor or trivial’’ symptoms will reveal a significant diagnosis when investigated. Following treatment most will be cured, while some will suffer some functional morbidity, and others may have a serious condition that, if not treated quickly and appropriately, may result in mortality. These, the minority of patients, need to be recognised and referred quickly and appropriately for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. Patrick J. Bradley joined as a co-editor for the Fifth Edition (2007), and introduced several colleague specialists, recognised as experts in various subspecialties within ENT. This format has been maintained with an expansion of the topics covered.
