Product information A Pocket Guide to the Ear
Diseases of the ear make up a large part of primary practice and can be challenging to diagnose and treat, especially for clinicians whose knowledge and expertise in otology may be limited. Concise and easy-to-read, here is your guide to almost everything that can go wrong with the ears – a brief clinical encyclopedia of ear disease. The book is based on the author's more than 25 years experience in a thriving ENT practice, and covers everything from proper equipment and examination methods, to anatomy and disorders of each region of the ear. The clear and succinct text is packed with valuable tools you can utilize in daily practice, and cuts through to important truths about ear symptoms, diagnoses, and treatment – information that is not always taught in medical training programs. This title is part of Thieme's acclaimed Flexibook series of clinical and basic science pocket guidebooks, which are sold worldwide and have been translated into more than 20 languages. Key features of this pocket reference: - Comprehensive – Complete and sound advice on nearly every common and rare ear disease seen by primary care physicians - Concise – Key facts communicated in 145 pages - Easy-to-read – Bold print stresses diagnostic and treatment concepts, and highlighted text emphasizes summary paragraphs and clinically important points - Beautifully produced – Over 40 full-color photographs and illustrations - Practical – Includes a comprehensive glossary of terms as well as a top ten list of common clinical misjudgments and how to avoid them Designed to be read from cover to cover, or as a reference when needed, this 145-page book is an essential professional tool – especially at a time when well-trained gatekeepers are crucial to high-quality healthcare. Here is the pocket guide anyone who treats or diagnoses ears and hearing - primary care physicians, family practitioners, pediatricians, otolaryngologists, audiologists, and more - needs to have at their disposal. Residents and students rotating through ENT will be amazed at the wealth of information provided in such a succinct text.

Frequently asked questions

What is an e-book?
An e-book is the electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file.
The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.

What formats are there and how do they differ?
Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.
The PDF format corresponds 1:1 to the printed book and has a fixed page layout. It is therefore ideal for computers, tablets and larger e-readers.
E-books in EPUB format adapt dynamically to the display size of the reading device. It is therefore particularly suitable for smaller devices such as smartphones and small-format tablets and e-readers.

Do I need a special program to open the e-book?
Free reading programs for e-books are available for all operating systems and reading devices: for PDFs, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader, for EPUBs, for example, Adobe Digital Editions.

How does the download work?
You will find a download link on the order confirmation page and in your order confirmation email. Click on this link to start the download and save the file in a directory of your choice.

Can I read the e-book on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use your e-book on multiple reading devices.

Do I have to be online to read e-books?
No, after downloading to your reading device you can access the e-book offline at any time.

Are Thieme e-books copy-protected?
Yes, e-books are protected by a digital watermark. This means that there are no restrictions for you when using them.

Am I allowed to lend or sell e-books?
E-books are for private use only and may not be lent or sold.

Am I allowed to exchange or return the e-book?
Due to their nature, e-books are not suitable for return. Just like downloads of other electronic files (films, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
