The ADA's Practical Guide to Patients with Medical Conditions is a clinical manual that provides practicing dentists with information on a range of common medical conditions and guidelines for treating patients presenting with these conditions. Individual chapters reflect different systems-such as Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Endocrine and Metabolic, Neurologic, Gastrointestinal and others-or specific disorders and conditions-such as Bleeding Disorders, HIV/AIDS and Related Conditions, Head and Neck Cancer, Women's Oral Health Issues, and others. Chapters follow a consistent format and include sections on background, description of disease, pathogenesis, coordination of care between the dentist and patient, medical management, dental management, and key questions to ask the patient and the physician. With contributions from over 25 experts in the field, The ADA's Practical Guide to Patients with Medical Conditions is a must-have resource for all general dentists in practice.
