Oxford Handbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 2nd Edition PDF Free Download
Now in its second edition, the Oxford Handbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has been fully updated to reflect current guidelines, with new images and annotated x-rays to support the text.
Split into sections based on clinical areas, vital knowledge is distilled into bullets and summary boxes for quick and easy reference. Covering all common complaints likely to arise in everyday duties alongside a dedicated emergencies section, this handbook ensures all trainees from both medical and dental backgrounds, specialist nurses, and medical students gain a solid understanding of oral and maxillofacial surgical presentations, practices, and procedures.
This handbook has been updated and amended but its core structure which has been popular has remained the same. It has been written to be your friend and guide during your time working as a junior in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It should serve you well whether your qualification is in dentistry or medicine. It has been written much like a travel guide, to give you the information you need when you need it. While it is full of factual information, it is not intended to be a concise textbook of oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS)— there are plenty of those available. This handbook will tell you those things that other books won’t! Really useful tips that we learned ‘on the job’ have been gathered and added to these pages, alongside practical hints and guidance. We have also included things you will feel you really should know but are afraid to ask. It has grown since the first edition and with your help it will continue to do so. We are grateful to the specialty reviewers for their guidance and hope readers will also continue to give us their feedback to help the book to develop further in time. The trainee entering the exciting field of oral and maxillofacial surgery has every reason to feel rather nervous. Not only is he or she confronted by large numbers of patients with all sorts of interesting, difficult, complex, and confusing problems – some of which may be outside the strict boundaries of the head and neck – but also by the bewildering number of large, beautifully illustrated, and very expensive textbooks which are available on the subject. Fortunately, to the rescue come the four authors of this book; two of them experienced surgical teachers in this field, reinforced by two specialist trainees in oral and maxillofacial surgery. They have succeeded in producing a concise aid, which covers pretty well all the problems the tyro is likely to encounter in everyday clinical practice; the specialized anatomy and radiology of the region, what to do on the wards, the clinics, the theatre and the A and E department, how to cope with the drugs in common use and even how to get on with colleagues. Although not a maxillofacial surgeon myself, I have read through this book with great interest. I am sure the trainees in this exciting and expanding specialty will benefit from using it – and so will their patients!
