The FIRST text ever on speech breathing disorders! This text takes the reader from the laboratory to the clinic. A hallmark is its strong translational focus. Seven chapters lay out Preliminaries, Foundations of Breathing, Normal Speech Breathing, Evaluation of Speech Breathing, Management of Speech Breathing, Ventilator-Supported Speech Breathing, and Clinical Applications. Detailed table of contents. Review.
Included in this edition are 461 pages of text, 28 original figures, 7 new clinical forms (including a bedside evaluation protocol), 54 sidetracks (asides of historical and modern interest), 8 instructional clinical scenarios, and 254 interdisciplinary references. This unique text offers coverage of all of the latest advances in this area, provides information never before published, and gives the clinician a user-friendly framework from which to approach client care. Aspiring and working speech-language pathologists, pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, and related professionals are the targeted audience.
The principles and methods discussed are applicable to clients with neuromotor disorders, voice disorders, and pulmonary disorders. Detailed evaluation protocols are included for case history, auditory-perceptual, physical, and instrumental examinations. Sixteen major sections are devoted to management methods. Special features include extensive coverage of speaking-related dyspnea and detailed sections on each of the five types of ventilatory support in individuals who cannot breathe on their own. Case scenarios focus on functional misuse of the breathing apparatus, low cervical spinal cord injury, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, high cervical spinal cord injury, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, respiratory myoclonus, cerebellar tumor, and muscular dystrophy.
