This is the first book to concentrate on dysphagia in rare conditions – those that occur infrequently or those that may occur more frequently but are only sometimes associated with dysphagia. Covering a wide range of conditions – from progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), through connective tissue disease, to conditions as diverse as West Nile virus – the editors and expert contributors efficiently synthesize the available information to provide the essentials needed to help clinicians to perform sophisticated assessments, based on their knowledge of both the conditions and the expected swallowing signs and treatments. Each entry covers the neurology of the given condition, including the signs and symptoms, neuropathology, epidemiology and genetics. Thereafter, coverage of swallowing in each condition examines the diagnostic signs and symptoms, etiology, swallowing neuropathology, associated cognitive, linguistic, and communicative signs and symptoms, special diagnostic considerations, treatment, nutrition, hydration, and medications.

Currently, there are very few resources that provide guidance for practicing clinicians in the area of neuromuscular diseases. Dysphagia in Neuromuscular Diseasesapproaches the subject in a unique manner, allowing clinicians to develop insights into diseases, syndromes, and neurological conditions that extend even beyond those specifically addressed in the text. Compared to competitive texts, this book uniquely provides in-depth coverage specific to dysphagia research with a much broader spectrum of neuromuscular diseases, and employs a physiologically based taxonomy. Recognizing there is no universally accepted methodology for classification of neuromuscular diseases, the authors have addressed this dilemma in three ways: (1) outlining the levels of the neuromuscular system, extending from the central nervous system to the muscle, with chapters devoted to diseases that are representative of pathologies at each level; (2) outlining normal respiratory physiology and airway defense mechanisms, with discussion of how these are altered by various neuromuscular disease processes and how this affects risk for secondary medical complications such as pneumonia; and (3) describing the neuromuscular conditions that are associated with the various diseases with discussion of approaches to evaluation, management and treatment that address the nature of the impairment. With over 50 years of combined clinical practice and extensive experience in working with patients diagnosed with various neuromuscular diseases, the authors offer practitioners the best available evidence to support treatment decisions.

This publication highlights the advances made in managing cough and brings these to otolaryngology practitioners in a concise forum, as well as presenting issues of special interest to laryngologists such as paradoxical vocal fold motion, disordered breathing, irritable larynx, evolution of the vagus as a protective circuit, the importance of cough in deglutition, and surgical interventions. Some of the topics include: The cough reflex, sensory receptors, and neurogenic mediators; Mucus and mucins; Cough and Swallowing dysfunction; Cough due to asthma, cough-variant asthma, and nonasthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis; Occupational, environmental, and irritant induced cough; Pharmacologic management; Unexplained cough; Cough in the pediatric population; and Rhinogenic laryngitis, cough and the unified airway; among others.

Release On

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine is a unique textbook for students and practitioners of complementary medicine, offering a systematic comparative approach to Western and Eastern medicine. Practitioners of complementary medicine increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to develop a core understanding of conventional medical language and philosophy. The book is designed as a guide to understanding conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments, whilst also encouraging the reader to reflect on and translate how these diagnoses may be interpreted from a more holistic medical perspective. Throughout the text the practitioner/student is encouraged to see that conventional and more holistic interpretations are not necessarily contradictory, but instead are simply two different approaches to interpreting the same truth, that truth being the patient's symptoms. After introductory sections on physiology, pathology and pharmacology, there follow sections devoted to each of the physiological systems of the body. In these, the physiology of each system is explored together with the medical investigation, symptoms and treatments of the important diseases which might affect that system. As each disease is described, the reader is encouraged to consider the corresponding Chinese medical perspective. The textbook concludes with chapters relating specifically to dealing with patients in practice. In particular these focus on warning signs of serious disease, supporting patients on medication and ethical issues which may arise from management of patients which is shared with conventional practitioners. The book also offers a detailed summary of 'Red Flag symptoms' which are those which should be referred for 'Western' medical investigation or emergency medical treatment, and also a guide to how patients can be safely supported in withdrawing from conventional medication, when this is clinically appropriate. Those wishing to use the text for systematic study can make use of the question and problem-solving approach offered on the accompanying CD to which references to self study exercises appear at regular stages throughout the book. This means that the text can be easily adapted to form the basis of a study course in clinical medicine for students of complementary medicine. In addition to the self-testing questions and answers, the supporting CD also contains checklists for revision and full-colour illustrations. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Clare Stephenson is a qualified medical practitioner who worked in hospital medicine, general practice and public health medicine for a number of years before training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture. Over the course of a decade she developed and taught an undergraduate course for students of Chinese medicine on Western medicine and how it relates to TCM. She is particularly committed to encouraging communication and understanding between practitioners of different health disciplines. She currently works as a GP in Oxfordshire.
