Written by leading specialists in voice, Voice Disorders, Third Edition is a necessary book for every graduate student in the field of speech-language pathology and provides the level of detail needed to assess and treat those with voice disorders. This third edition of Voice Disorders builds on the earlier editions and offers the student and clinician a comprehensive study of the respiratory, laryngeal, and neurological subsystems that make up voice production. The authors balance voice science with voice treatments, examining traditional interventions as well as recent advances in cellular therapies, muscle strength training, and treatments for special populations such as singers and actors and those with complex medical conditions.
New to the Third Edition:
- Two new chapters on the Immune System (Chapter 12) and Laryngeal Reflexes (Chapter 13).
- Reorganized for a greater flow of information and reader response to content, with revisions to every chapter.
- Updated to reflect the current research and demographic statistics for voice uses, updated references, weblinks, and glossary.
- A thoroughly updated chapter on Voice Therapy techniques, expanded to include description of therapy approaches and instructions to use with the patient, and more detail on humanistic communication, cultural diversity, and adherence.
- Additional patient case examples throughout the Vocal Pathology and Voice Therapy chapters.
- The Performers chapter is enhanced with detailed cases and strategies to promote singers health, along with sample exercises to try when treating injured singing voices.
- Updated information regarding head and neck cancer statistics, clinical pathways and treatment outcomes, with comprehensive case studies included.
- A PluralPlus companion website with an image bank, lecture slides, exercises, study questions, video examples, and laryngeal pathology with accompanying audio samples.
NOTE: For the third edition, there will no longer be a printed companion workbook for sale. The study materials from the workbook are available on the companion site to this textbook.
The third edition expands the approaches to voice therapy and better defines clinical decision making with information about humanistic communication strategies, adherence, and the variables that influence patient outcomes. The authors have categorized therapy approaches in terms of type, such as symptomatic, combined modality, and hygienic. For each approach, they describe specific treatment methods, case examples, and expected outcomes. The third edition of Voice Disorders is written so that the student can comprehend complex material by providing a comprehensive glossary of terms and case examples throughout. Supplemented with case studies and video examples relevant to the study of clinical voice pathology, it provides supplemental material for the educator as well as pragmatic tools for the student and clinician.
