Practical and based on the latest clinical evidence and guidelines, this is the definitive guide for anyone working in oral and maxillofacial departments (OMFS) or covering the specialty during their surgical rotation.
Concise and bulleted, this handbook is broken down into easy-to-read chunks based on daily duties. Sections such as In Theatre and In Clinic cover all the common complaints you will see there, and give vital information for surviving any situation. The handbook also contains sections covering emergencies, presenting syndromes and commonly-used drugs and dental materials. With OMFS now part of the Core Training programme for surgical trainees, this handbook will ensure you have a solid grasp of the basics and fundamentals, and have the confidence to deal with all oral and maxillofacial presentations, practices, and procedures. All junior doctors, specialist nurses, and medical students will find this rapid-reference handbook easy to use, and a vital companion for both study and practice.
