The first book in an exciting new series, Head, Neck and Dental Emergencies provides the reader with a working approach to the diagnosis and management of these patients in casualty. It has been laid out in a similar way to the Oxford Handbooks series - a small format, plastic-covered, note-based, practical volume for looking up information quickly. The book covers how to diagnose and manage all urgent or emergent problems that occur above the collar bones. Emergency care must be simple and quick so this book comprises short notes, illustrations and photographs, with an emphasis on establishing the diagnosis while maintaining a high index of suspicion. Where possible, the book covers one topic per on one to three pages and uses a series of four icons to allow rapid identification of the degree of urgency. This system will help the reader to get an idea of how soon each problem should be seen. Aimed primarily at undergraduate dentistry students, this book will also have a wide postgraduate market amongst dentists and junior doctors and nurses in accident and emergency medicine, maxillofacial surgery, ENT, opthalmology, anesthetics and plastic surgery.

This sensibly-sized handbook, which Oxford University Press excels in producing throughout its range, should perhaps be a permanent feature in the white coat pocket of those in the frontline managing these patient categories, from student through SHO to consultant. As a useful and easily available concise means of confirming management of these issues for most clinical professionals, it is a best buy at the cover price. Dental Practice This is required reading for undergraduate dental students but is also useful for house officers who will undoubtedly be called upon to deal with the various emergencies outlined in this handy, pocket sized paperback, which is in the typical OUP handbook format with wipe-clean cover (perhaps especially necessary with this title!). Given the ease of access to the understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of the many maxillofacial emergencies depicted here, the novice working in an A&E department will - for a time at least - find this little book indispensable. BDA News, Vol 18 a great quick reference in an emergency situation. ICSM Gazette I have never been so excited about a book in my whole life! Tom Walker, Medical Student, Aberdeen
