I cannot thank you enough for this cheat sheet!!

Thanks for this. On top of ENT being the worst dictators (at least at my hospital) it is so hard to find anything reliable on it.

Thanks to you both – glad the information helped. If you would like anything else specific to a specialty or anything else for that matter, just let me know.
