Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Clinical Diagnosis and Management is a quick reference manual for pediatricians, residents, audiologists, and others who work with pediatric patients. This text distills the breadth of knowledge on this topic into one that is manageable and easily comprehensible.
Pediatric hearing loss is an incredibly complex topic replete with controversies, evolving research findings, and subtle differences in management and diagnosis with different types of hearing loss. Currently, there is no such manual for pediatric hearing loss and the literature that is available can be overwhelming and difficult to read as a quick reference. This text provides practical content for daily clinical use alongside CT and MRI images, audiograms, and algorithms.
The chapters distill this complex topic into distinct subsets such as unilateral hearing loss, congenital hearing loss, and sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Pediatric Sensorineural Hearing Loss addresses clinical questions that arise in daily practice by pediatricians and otolaryngologists and can be used by residents for preparation for in-service training exams or as a teaching tool.
Dr. Anne completed her Bachelor of Science degree, Master of Science degree, and her Doctor of Medicine degree at Wayne State University. Her post-graduate training includes a two-year otolaryngology residency at The State University of New York, followed by completion of residency at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University. She then did a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh.
Judith E. C. Lieu
Dr. Lieu graduated from the Washington University School of Medicine and completed her otolaryngology training at the BJH/Washington University/SLCH consortium program. She obtained clinical research training at the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at Yale University, then returned to St. Louis Childrens Hospital for a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship.
