EENT disorders include many of the most common conditions encountered in clinical practice, affecting women and men, children and the elderly equally. Mastery of this topic is fundamental to effective general, family, and pediatric practices. The realm of the text is wide, exploring the clinical experiences of 61 diseases that range from common acute infections to rare surgical emergencies.
The book is a valuable reference for enhancing critical thought; logical and methodical analysis, strategies and formula selection are presented, helping practitioners to master a specialty rarely taught in depth in the West. Authors, Professor Peng and Ms. Frank detail the process of pattern differentiation based on the location and presentation of the disease to help practitioners diagnose with accuracy. Familiar formulas are reframed and used innovatively. Historical formulas rarely translated in Western textbooks are presented with analysis and contemporary empirical formulas; formulas that have never been previously presented are shared.
