Developed and edited by one of the specialty s most respected and distinguished surgeons, this new and completely up-to-date handbook functions equally well as a survival manual for residents, as a quick reference for experienced clinicians, as a go-to source for managing emergency situations, and as a study guide for anyone preparing for board exams. It articulates the standards of care recognized by all licensed practitioners and the specific protocols that must be followed in providing treatment for the surgical patient. Spanning the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, chapters address routine aspects of care such as doing a proper history and physical examination, interpreting lab tests and radiographs, and managing complications of dentoalveolar surgery; specialized treatment for patients with infections, cysts and tumors, salivary gland disease, neck masses, and other forms of oral and maxillofacial pathology; and protocols for managing anesthetic and medical emergencies, severely traumatized patients, and those with other life-threatening injuries. The authors are recognized authorities who know the most pressing questions that are likely to arise in the clinic and operating room as well as the answers to them. Compact and portable, this handbook is a ready source of essential information for the busy clinician.
