The second edition of this well-received book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date description of the diagnosis and management of dysphagia, including oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal dysfunction. All aspects of dysphagia are covered, with detailed consideration of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. In addition to a variety of benign and malignant disease entities, signs and symptoms, and treatment approaches, many other relevant topics are addressed, including endoscopy, manometry, malnutrition, dehydration, oral care, dementia, ethics, and the social and psychologic impacts of dysphagia. Specific aspects of importance in pediatric and geriatric patients are highlighted. This edition features a number of completely new chapters focusing on, among other subjects, dysphagia in further disease contexts and following laryngectomy and radiation therapy. The authors are without exception world-leading experts in their fields. The book will be of value for practitioners in all specialties involved in the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia. It is therefore a truly multidisciplinary project.

Dysphagia Assessment and Treatment Planning

A Team Approach, Fourth Edition

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.

A multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis, treatment and care Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a major complaint among many patients suffering from neurological diseases as well as in the elderly. Its severity ranges from moderate difficulty to complete inability to swallow, and it may give rise to clinically relevant complications such as aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition and/or dehydration, impaired quality of life, and death. However, despite its high prevalence and even though it would be very cost-effective to avoid complications by adequate treatment, dysphagia is still severely underdiagnosed. The contributions in this book present and discuss state-of-the-art diagnostic methods, treatment, and care of dysphagia patients, putting special emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach. A variety of clinical specialists will find this publication a most valuable addition to their library, including nurses, speech-language pathologists, dieticians, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and related specialties.
