    This book is a practical guide to interpreting audiometric tests, alongside the clinical assessment, to make sound evidence-based decisions in the clinical management of adults and children with ear conditions.

    Audiology is central to clinical decision making, but it is not always taught well to ENT surgeons, and often not taught at all. This third edition of a popular and classic text is an essential revision aid for ENT trainees preparing for specialist examinations including the FRCS (ORL-HNS).

    Fully updated and well-illustrated, it provides up-to-date content on the management of a wide range of ear conditions and will be of interest to the whole multi-disciplinary team including audiologists, audiological scientists, audiological physicians, private hearing aid providers and speech and language therapists.
