Diseases of the Nose, Throat and Ear: For Practitioners and Students, Fourth Edition provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the diseases of the ear, nose, and throat. This book discusses allergy and its allied conditions. Organized into six sections encompassing 41 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of anatomical structure of the nose. This text then explores the various processes of examination of the cavities of the nose, pharynx, larynx, and ear. Other chapters consider inference with phonation, which is one of the most common symptoms in affections of the larynx. Other chapters consider the sensitivity of the nasal mucous membrane to atmospheric changes, including temperature, humidity, sunshine, prevailing wind, and dust. This book discusses as well heliotherapy as a useful adjuvant to other treatment in nasal disease. The final chapter deals with the congenital defects of the labyrinth, which are responsible for the condition known as sporadic congenital deaf-mutism. This book is a valuable resource for clinicians.
