This pocket-sized reference is for clinicians who manage patients with dysphagia. Speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physicians, clinical dieticians, nurses, and pharmacists will find this book to be a helpful, handy resource. Drugs and Dysphagia is carefully organized, allowing quick access to precise information. The text comprises three parts: Part 1-overviews the nervous system and the swallow process. An overview of the effects of medications on swallowing is provided in Chapter 3. Part 2-addresses medications that affect the central nervous system. Medications associated with oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal dysphagia; causes of dysphagia; and drug-induced dysphagia are discussed. Part 3-deals with important medications that can cause dysfunction of the gastrointestinal system and those that are used to treat gastrointestinal dysfunction. Tables are included throughout for this quick and easy-to-use reference. These tables are organized into medication groups based on their use. Specific medications from each group are listed by both generic and brand name. The tables include the recommended doses of these medications; and the commonly encountered side effects associated with them, which may contribute to dysphagia.

Swallowing difficulty or dysphagia is a common disorder and affects all age groups from the newborn to the elderly. Several medical conditions like lack of dentition, gastroesophageal reflux disease, eosinophilic esophagitis, cardiomegaly and strokes can cause dysphagia. It can also follow head -neck surgeries. It is important to diagnose and treat dysphagia, otherwise it can lead to malnutrition and dehydration. Improved understanding of the physiology of swallowing, advances in endoscopic and radiological techniques along with an increasing elderly population has resulted in development of a separate swallowing disorders discipline. This book would be an aid for clinicians, educators and trainees from the fields of speech language pathology, pediatrics, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, oncology, neurology, geriatrics and rehabilitation, all of who form a part of the multidisciplinary swallowing team.

Dysphagia Assessment and Treatment Planning

A Team Approach, Fourth Edition

Release On

Dysphagia Assessment and Treatment Planning: A Team Approach, Fourth Edition is an ideal resource for dysphagia courses in speech-language pathology graduate programs. The unique value of this book is its multidisciplinary approach. Too often, speech-language pathologists function clinically with insufficient interaction with, or understanding of, the roles of other professionals involved with their patients. This text incorporates information pertinent to the roles, tools, and views of a multidisciplinary dysphagia team, including physicians, speech pathologists, nurse specialists, and dietitians, who work together on a daily basis. In this fourth edition, the organization has changed, with chapters concerned with assessment techniques coming first, and material addressing special populations comprising the latter portion of the text. This reflects what is likely a more typical approach to dysphagia in graduate courses concerned with the topic and one that complements teaching of the subject matter. Updates to the fourth edition include: The treatment chapter (Chapter 10) has been updated to reflect the current status of therapeutic approaches previously considered in treating dysphagic patients.Chapters dealing with nursing (Chapter 11) and nutrition (Chapter 12) have been updated to incorporate the latest recommendations in nursing care and dietary considerations for patients experiencing dysphagia.The pediatrics chapter (Chapter 13) has been expanded to address specific problems and needs not only of infants but also the entire spectrum of childhood.A chapter devoted to the esophagus (Chapter 14) addresses new information on the management of esophageal disorders, including the novel double-balloon dilation of the UES and a device for manually opening the upper esophagus.Chapters addressing special populations, including neurogenic disease (Chapter 15) and head and neck cancer (Chapter 16), incorporate the latest information regarding dysphagia and approaches to treatment pertinent to each group.A brand-new addition to the book is Chapter 18, which addresses dysphagia associated with alterations to the spine as a consequence of either disease or surgery.*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.

It is now 11 years since the publication of the first edition of Normal and Abnormal Swallowing: Imaging in Diagnosis and Therapy. These 11 years have seen an enormous change in the specialty of the study of dysphagia. First, we have seen the tragic loss of two of the pioneering giants in the field: Wylie J. Dodds, MD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and Martin W. Donner, MD, of The lohns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, a former coeditor of this book. Second, there has been a steady expansion in the number of professionals interested in and working in this spe cialty. The last 11 years have also seen the steady growth of the multidiscipli nary journal Dysphagia, devoted to swallowing and its disorders, as well as the formation of the Dysphagia Research Society, which held its tenth annual meeting in October 2001. The dysphagia special interest division (SID 13) of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) now has some 3,000 members. At the same time, the world population is aging. Dysphagia will be an important health issue in this aging population.

This brand new resource provides a solid, comprehensive and accessible foundation in neurosciences for undergraduates and pre-registration postgraduate students. Using a multidisciplinary approach, it will guide students in their understanding of the most commonly found problems in neurological rehabilitation and inform their clinical practice. The book starts with the foundation of basic neurosciences, covering the normal function and structure of the nervous system from the organism as a whole through to the molecular level. It also introduces perceptuo-motor control and learning - topics that lie at the heart of rehabilitation. The book then goes on to discuss problems that allied health professionals commonly encounter in neurological rehabilitation. Topics covered include problems with perception and movement, planning, attention and memory, communication, motivation and emotion, sleep, continence and sexuality. The book also introduces key theories and evidence underpinning both behavioural and pharmacotherapeutic interventions used in neurologcial rehabilitation. The book closes by summarising current principles underpinning best practice and also looks to the future by identifying gaps in evidence-based practice with ideas for future research and what the future may hold for neurological rehabilitation. Throughout, a variety of supplementary information boxes point towards additional material such as Case Studies which highlight the clinical relevance of topics discussed; and a variety of Research Boxes which refer to more advanced material and/or original research studies. Each chapter ends with self-assessment questions which will check progress and prompt students to reflect on how the information presented in the chapter could be applied to clinical practice. Written by a multidisciplinary team, highly experienced in teaching, research and clinical practice Lays the foundation of basic neurosciences for allied health students Accessible and comprehensive text Introduces students to key theories and evidence underpinning neurological rehabilitation Focuses on clinically relevant information End of chapter self-assessment questions of different levels of complexity
