Emergency medicine has taken a rapid stride in the last decade or so; but, very few books are written by the authors keeping in mind the needs of both undergraduate and postgraduate medical students which is even more true in the subject of otorhinolaryngology. The author has made an honest attempt to include various aspects of emergencies in the field of ENT along with a few chapters from various contributory authors also, who are experts in their respective fields. A comprehensive chapter on maxillofacial trauma is given, as road traffic accidents causing facial injury and other trauma in head and neck area are increasing every year. It is bound to have some mistakes, omissions, lacunae or drawback in the first edition, but it will be updated after getting the critical remarks from the esteemed readers along with addition of new chapters in subsequent editions.
Emergencies in ENT are frequently encountered in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (ORL & HNS), but there is hardly any textbook available exclusively on this important subject for the benefit of medical students and residents in ORL and HNS. The Medical Council of India has also stressed on starting Trauma and Emergency departments in all the medical colleges of India including postgraduation in Emergency Medicine. Keeping in view all these aspects, this book Emergencies in Otorhinolaryngology is written comprehensively to cover all the common emergencies in ENT like Epistaxis, Maxillofacial Trauma, Stridor, Neck Space Infections, Vertigo, Foreign Bodies, Airway Obstruction and Tracheostomy, etc. which are essential for any student of ENT to develop the clinical competency for successful patient management in emergencies. The topics covered are mandatory for problem-based learning and will definitely serve as a guide to the practicing ENT specialist including undergraduate and postgraduate students of ENT.
