Since the sequencing of the human genome, major developments in our understanding of otology and neurotology have taken place; diagnostic measures have been transformed, and the underlying genetics of a variety of diseases affecting the ear have already been unraveled. Otorhinolaryngologists and head and neck surgeons will find this monograph an invaluable resource for the management of neurotological problems in their patients. The contributors are internationally renowned, and many of them are affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, a leading center for neurotology and otology. The text thus emphasizes state-of-the-art developments in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of hearing, balance and the facial nerve. Scientific and clinical pathophysiology is reflected throughout. This volume is a key reference guide for medical students, general practitioners, and aspiring otolaryngologists and otologists.

An Essential Guide to Hearing and Balance Disorders consolidates the most significant clinical aspects of hearing and balance disorders, ranging from cause and diagnosis to treatment and cure. Experts in various subspecialties of this extensive topic introduce readers to the most sophisticated and state of the art methods of diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter expands on a specific topic area along the continuum of how medical personnel diagnose hearing and balance disorders, to how surgical implantation of the cochlea and rehabilitation can remedy various conditions. In concise format, the book begins with a case history and follows with comprehensive descriptions of current knowledge regarding fundamental causes of hearing loss and balance disorders, as well as a thorough examination of objective assessment. The latter half of the volume presents specialized treatment and rehabilitative options for various disorders. The chapters in this part cover special topics and conclude with pertinent case studies. Unique areas of discussion in a text of this kind include: genetics of deafness pediatric hearing loss and hearing loss later in life business essentials in audiology private practice professional issues, such as ethics, methods of practice, and conflicts of interest. As its title implies, this book is critically important for all students and professionals in hearing/balance related disciplines, including audiology, otolaryngology, general medicine, and rehabilitation oriented allied health care occupations.
Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition is a comprehensive and challenging textbook for undergraduate students in audiology and hearing science, for graduate students beginning an AuD program, especially those who may not have a background in the subject, and for other health care professionals who would benefit by a better understanding of hearing science and audiology practices. This textbook is written in a style that tries to make new or difficult concepts relatively easy to understand. The approach is to keep it readable and to punctuate the text with useful figures and tables. This textbook seeks to provide a solid foundation in hearing science and clinical audiology, and is an excellent resource for those preparing for the Audiology Praxis Exam. It also serves as a companion to the Audiology Workbook, Third Edition, by Dr. Steven Kramer and Dr. Larry Small. From science to practice, this textbook covers anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, acoustic properties and perception of sounds, audiometry and speech measures, audiogram interpretations, masking, outer and middle ear assessments, otoacoustic emissions and auditory brainstem responses, hearing screening, hearing aids, cochlear and other implantable devices, and auditory disorders supported with expected audiologic data. The reader is also introduced to the profession of audiology and what it means to work as an audiologist. Where appropriate, variations in procedures for pediatrics are presented. NEW TO THIS EDITION The third edition of Audiology: Science to Practice has been extensively revised from the previous edition. The authors systematically reviewed each of the chapters from the previous edition to expand, update, and reorganize the material to make it even more useful to the student new to audiology, and at the same time continues to be more comprehensive than one might find in other introductory texts on audiology. The authors retained the features that worked well in previous editions, including an easy to read format, key learning objectives, and synopses within each chapter with bulleted highlights for review. Chapters are now organized in a more traditional sequence beginning with information about the profession of audiology, followed by acoustics, anatomy/physiology, and an expanded coverage of clinical audiology. References and figures have been updated, including photos of new hearing instruments and amplification devices. The book now has a more beautiful 2-color layout. This edition has four new chapters: Chapter 10. Outer and Middle Ear AssessmentChapter 11. Evoked Physiologic ResponsesChapter 15. Implantable DevicesChapter 16. Vestibular System. Another substantive change includes a revision to Chapter 14 on Hearing Aids to make it more appropriate for the undergraduate student or others who want an overview of this important part of audiology. *Disclaimer: Please note that ancillary content (such as documents, audio, and video, etc.) may not be included as published in the original print version of this book.
The last two decades of the twentieth century have witnessed advances in our knowledge of the biological processes which result in hearing. These have come about from the application of contemporary molecular biological, physiology, and imaging techniques in combination with discoveries in the domain of hearing. This volume presents these pivotal developments and their applications to the understanding of normal and abnormal hearing in humans, information that is essential to the ability of both scientists and clinicians to further their understanding and treatment of hearing disorders.
