Clinical Voice Pathology Theory and Management Synopsis

A classic work, now in its fifth edition, Clinical Voice Pathology: Theory and Management, is a compilation of the authors' many years of experience in a multitude of settings and addresses a considerable range of voice disorders in various populations and from various etiologies--including medical, environmental, social, psychological, occupational, and even idiopathic threats to vocal health. The addition of world-renowned coauthor, Nelson Roy, brings this fifth edition even more valuable experience in clinical voice disorders research. Whether a typical voice user, occupational voice user, elite vocal performer, head and neck cancer client, or an individual who has lost the ability to communicate competently and confidently due to a detrimental voice change, each patient presents a unique diagnostic dilemma: how best to return the voice to its optimal condition? This text thoroughly answers this question through explaining and illustrating the knowledge necessary to treat and manage voice disorders.Key features to the fifth edition: Provides the history and common causes of voice disorders, introducing the interdisciplinary background essential to successful voice therapy and treatment planning : Details the anatomy and physiology of voice production to aid in identification and evaluation measures: Reviews criteria for a comprehensive voice assessment, such as high speed digital imaging and videokymography tools, as well as several voice therapy approaches, including hygienic, symptomatic, psychogenic, physiologic, and eclectic treatments: Highlights current clinical evidence that either supports or refutes popular voice therapy treatments for conditions such as papilloma, mutational falsetto, and transgendered voice: Presents the pathologies of the laryngeal mechanism, organized according to ASHA's Classification Manual for Voice Disorders: Provides guidance for management and rehabilitation of the laryngectomized patient, outlining the complementary roles of the interdisciplinary treatment team to manage multiple treatment goals. With entirely new artwork, full color inserts, case examples, and multimedia images of pathologies, Clinical Voice Pathology, Fifth Edition, not only maintains but also significantly improves on the standards set by its previous editions.

Clinical Voice Pathology Theory and Management Press Reviews

Clinical Voice Pathology: Theory and Management, is the 5th edition of this well-known textbook, with new input from co-author, Nelson Roy. It is intended pri-marily for speech-language pathologists, and it is written in a way that makes it readily accessible to students and academics in undergraduate and postgraduate speech pathology programs, and to practitioners in the field. ... In addition to the subjective and instrumental approaches involved in the comprehensive assessment procedures and differential diagnosis, there are helpful examples of the kinds of questions that a clinician may ask, and ways in which practitioners may explain their rationale for probing further. Case examples are included to illustrate how management might proceed following different diagnoses, and it is excellent to see chapters devoted to the professional voice and laryngectomy. ... The strength of this new edition is that it provides a sound overview of foundation knowledge and practices involved in the specialty of voice pathology, and a strong focus on the crucial contribution of the speech-language pathologist. It is written in a style that is consistent throughout, easy to understand, and engaging in its emphasis on empirical evidence and clinical practice. The authors refer to the importance of the clinician-scientist, and the book reflects the work of three master clinicians who have generously shared their integrated knowledge from their extensive experience in teaching, research, and clinical practice. --Janet Baker L.A.C.S.T.
