Recognizing the clinician's want for fast entry to a complete and instantly necessary presentation of evidence-based fabric, the authors and editors have condensed the study at the commonest otorhinolaryngological proceedings into this necessary quantity. Their special approach color-codes the extent of study backing each one set of facts with the intention to make evaluate of the facts as fast and necessary as attainable. each one medical challenge is gifted with a "color key," letting the health care professional comprehend the extent of proof on hand: eco-friendly (high-level evidence), yellow (low–moderate degrees of evidence), or crimson (major war of words or purely minimum low-level evidence). The content material of every bankruptcy is established within the similar demeanour so the reader quick turns into familiar with discovering exactly the details wanted for every new case.

Featuring sections on common otolaryngology, head and neck surgical procedure, pediatrics, and otology, Evidence-Based Otolaryngology not just provides the learn, yet offers the clinician instantly acceptable options for sufferer therapy.

Sample text

In adults with stage NO oral cavity carcinoma (patient population), do supraomohyoid neck dissection (intervention) and modified radical neck dissection (control) result in similar survival rates (outcome of interest)? The narrow focus of each systematic review allows specific hypotheses to be tested) and defining that focus is the initial step in this process. 2. Perform a comprehensive search of the literature. The next step in the process of systematic review is the identification of all relevant papers.

3. Assess the quality of studies that meet the review's inclusion/ exclusion criteria. Once all of these relevant papers have been collected) the quality of each study's design is determined) even before the related results are considered. This process is partially accomplished by determining the level of the methodology (see "Levels of Evidence" above). The quality is also determined by how well the methods minimize bias and control potentially confounding variables (see "Credibility of Results" above).

This process is partially accomplished by determining the level of the methodology (see "Levels of Evidence" above). The quality is also determined by how well the methods minimize bias and control potentially confounding variables (see "Credibility of Results" above). The precision of outcome measurements and power of the given sample size and variability are also important (see "Content of Results" above). In addition, depending on the clinical query, other factors such as adequacy of follow-up time are also crucial.
