Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine (10th Edition)

Brief Introduction

There is a broad movement through the Kumar & Clark’s Clinical Medicine from early chapters which focus on general principles of clinical practice, to later chapters that deal with individual organ systems and clinicalsubspecialties.

These later chapters, based around individual subspecialties, begin by offering a tailored approach to basic clinical skills such as history-taking and examination. We have tried to encourage generic skills to be applied thoughtfully to the specialty in question: to encourage learners to adopt the approach taken by experts in the field, so that relevant questions are asked and key physical signs are carefully sought. Most chapters then cover basic sciences, including the anatomy and physiology of the relevant organs in question, before dealing with individual conditions in order.

Within the text:
• Pink subheadings introduce individual conditions,
• Green subheadings introduce the scientific background to the condition (e.g. ‘Aetiology’ or ‘Clinical features’), and
• Orange subheadings introduce clinical material, such as ‘Investigations’or ‘Management’.

Excerpts

ENT is a broad specialty that, in addition to covering diseases of the ears, nose and throat, is also concerned with diseases of the trachea and the skull base and is responsible for head and neck cancer, facial plastic surgery, sleep-disordered breathing as well as congenital head and neck anomalies. One-fifth of general practice relates to ENT conditions and whilst only 3% of emergency department visits are related to ENT diagnoses, they are often the most life-threatening(e.g. acute airway obstructions and major upper airway haemorrhage). Common emergency presentations include severe and complicated upper respiratory tract infections, epistaxis, upper airway compromise, ingested or inhaled foreign bodies and penetrating neck injuries. An ENT surgeon typically begins medical treatment and if this fails can manage these emergencies using surgical intervention.
