Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with "on the go". Their highly affordable price represents great value for those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Topics reflect information needs stemming from today's integrated undergraduate & foundation courses: * Common investigations (ECG, Chest X-Ray, etc) * Clinical skills (procedures, patient examination, etc) * Important and/or complex specialties in which students receive comparatively little dedicated training (psychiatry, renal medicine) Key Points * Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format - fits in back pocket! * Ear, nose & throat disorders account for a high proportion of the problems that students and junior doctors see during GP, A&E, paediatric & surgical rotations, but they receive little formal ENT training * Descriptions of common disorders enhanced by clinical scenarios (Patient presents with...) which help students and trainees recognise and manage common presenting problems Highly Commended at the BMA Medical Book Awards 2012
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.
The FIRST coding book BY otolaryngologists FOR otolaryngologists! The Essential Guide to Coding in Otolaryngology: Coding, Billing, and Practice Management details how to properly and compliantly code for both surgical and nonsurgical services. It is a practical guide for all otolaryngologists in the United States and fills the gap in training residents and fellows in coding with a readable yet searchable book. Included are sections on otolaryngology coding basics and advanced issues, claim submission, and ICD-10-CM. Focused entirely on a practical approach to coding, billing, and practice management, this text is user friendly and written both for the practicing physician and the coder. A physician's income is tied to the ability to code and good revenue cycle processes; thus, he or she must properly bill and collect for services provided. As profit margins are squeezed, the ability to optimize revenue by compliant coding is of the utmost importance. The Essential Guide to Coding in Otolaryngology is vital not only for new physicians but for nearly every otolaryngologist in practice. Key features include: All chapters written by practicing otolaryngologists, health care providers, practice management, and coding experts Discussion of the foundations of coding, billing, and practice management Otolaryngology subspecialty-focused discussion of office-based and surgical coding Robust index for easy reference
