About this book

Introduction

Recognizing the clinician's need for quick access to a comprehensive and immediately useful presentation of evidence-based material, the authors and editors have condensed the research on the most common otorhinolaryngological complaints into this indispensable volume. Their unique approach color-codes the level of research backing each set of evidence in order to make assessment of the evidence as quick and useful as possible. Each clinical problem is presented with a "color key," letting the physician know the level of evidence available: green (high-level evidence), yellow (low–moderate levels of evidence), or red (major disagreement or only minimal low-level evidence). The content of each chapter is structured in the same manner so the reader quickly becomes accustomed to finding precisely the information needed for each new case.

Featuring sections on general otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, pediatrics, and otology, Evidence-Based Otolaryngology not only presents the research, but gives the clinician immediately applicable recommendations for patient treatment.
