Students need a textbook that is easily readable, concise and in accordance with the prescribed curriculum. The primary objective of this book is to provide basic and practical information on the pertinent topics that will enable the reader to understand and improve his/her diagnostic and therapeutic skills. Special attempt has been made to make the book succinct without compromising on the required details. Included some new topics or added more details such as halitosis, dysphagia, infectious mononucleosis, herpes, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumothorax, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease, shock, cardiac arrest, cardiorespiratory resuscitation, arrhythmias, Addison’s disease, etc. In particular, a chapter on “Medical Emergencies in Dental Practice” has been specially added keeping in view of ever-growing need for dental surgeons to learn and practice emergency medicine. There was feedback from the students that the text in some of the chapters was too concised to comprehend and remember. Hence, in this edition, we have reframed the language of the text, which has now become comfortable and easy to retain. The running text has also been written in point-wise fashion. More figures and tables have been added for better illustration of the subject. The medical science is ever evolving. Newer understanding of the diseases, newer diagnostics and drugs need to be included in the book to enable us to provide state-of-the art treatment. Hence, we have modified definitions, classifications and treatment protocols in order to include recent advancements in the subject. While the book is intended primarily for dental undergraduate and postgraduate students, this should also be useful for medical students and practitioners.
