The now classic “Pasha” pocket guide–Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery: Clinical Reference Guide–returns for its fifth edition. This well-known guide concisely reviews rhinology, laryngology, endocrinology, general otolaryngology, and more, with a focus on relevant pathologies, diagnostic methods, and treatment recommendations. Spanning the breadth of the entire field, this “high-yield” book retains a “by residents, for residents” feel, while also including expert content useful to accomplished physicians. Medical students, allied health professionals, and otolaryngologists alike will find the fifth edition a valuable resource.
The concise, outline format is useful for clinical situations as well as a last minute review before a consult or rounds. The guide has proven essential for board review and maintenance of certification exams as well as a quick source for primary care providers. The fifth edition of this essential reference features:

Updates across all chapters featuring the latest diagnostic and treatment information
A host of new contributing authors
A new radiology appendix
New and updated illustrations throughout
Updated cancer staging

REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “The text is a worthwhile reference for those in the beginning stages of their career, such as medical students rotating on-service seeing otolaryngology patients and procedures for the first time. Allied health professionals serving otolaryngology patients may use it as a quick reference during clinics. It is especially useful to trained otolaryngologists seeking to rapidly review an organized handheld resource for board examination review. . . .Overall, this is a very nice reference. I would recommend this as a part of every training otolaryngologist’s library, designating it as especially useful for a comprehensive yet succinct board review.” –Kristen Hurst, University of Iowa, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology (2015)

REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “I have rarely learnt so much, in seconds of thumbing through a textbook, as I did reading about central sleep apnoea…[It] is ideal for fast access reference and revision on the flight to the exit exams! In practice I have opened this many times, picking subjects at random and found the writing style reader friendly throughout.” –Liam M. Flood, FRCS, FRCSI, James Cook University Hospital, Journal of Laryngology & Otology (2013)
