 Comprehensive Management of Swallowing Disorders, Second Edition has been revised with new authors and expanded information on the clinical evaluations made by dysphagia specialists and with state-of-the-art medical, behavioral, and surgical treatment options. The editors have selected specialists in every swallowing-related discipline to bring this edition to a true "state-of-the-art" comprehensive text on dysphagia. The text meets the needs of students, scientists, and practitioners who are involved daily with the complex issues of dysphagia.

It is divided into seven main parts:

Part I. IntroductionPart II. Anatomy and Physiology of SwallowingPart III. Evaluation: A. Clinical EvaluationPart III. Evaluation: B. Functional TestsPart IV. Pathophysiology of Swallowing DisordersPart V. Nonsurgical Treatment of Swallowing DisordersPart VI. Surgical Treatment of Swallowing DisordersPart VII. Swallowing Disorders: Prevalence and Management in Special Populations


Each section has been carefully edited with up-to-date references and provides the reader with a host of new material related to diagnosis, testing, and management of swallowing disorders. The authors represent the current core of those involved in multidisciplinary swallowing centers, and each focuses on his or her area of specialization. They bring their own perspective on the issues and challenges they face in managing swallowing disorders, knowing that other specialists are equally involved. This single volume is intended for practicing clinicians, students, and research scientists and represents up-to-date information in each area of specialization.

Special Features:

Details extensive discussions of normal swallow in pediatric and adult populationsProvides concise outlines of specific clinical examinations by seven clinical specialists: Otolaryngology, Speech Pathology, Rehabilitation Medicine, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Pediatrics, and NutritionDescribes a variety of treatments offered by many different specialties, including prosthodontists, speech-language pathologists, infectious disease specialists, and pediatriciansBrings issues of diet and nutrition up to date within the international dysphagia diet guidelinesFeatures a multidisciplinary team approach blended throughout the text that reflects the needs of the patients with swallowing disorders

The surgeon assumes responsibility for all factors that might influence the success of his or her craft, so a knowledge of potential complications is essential. Complications in Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery fills an important gap in the field by examining complications in all areas related to otolaryngology and head and neck surgery (excluding facial plastic and aesthetic surgery). From procedures in the middle and inner ear, paranasal sinuses, and salivary glands, through endoscopic skull base surgery, to airway management, laryngectomy, thyroid surgery, and much more, this book is a practical reference for any surgeon.

Special Features:

A comprehensive guide to the risks and complications in otology, rhinology, and head and neck surgeryWritten by a team of leading authorities from around the world, it presents the reader with a wealth of clinical experience in every instructive chapter Formatted for easy accessibility, including a definition of each complication and its sequelae, the incidence of occurrence, the point during surgery when it is most likely to happen, tips for avoiding it, and techniques for managing it Includes current scientific, evidence-based information throughout More than 360 full-color intraoperative photographs, endoscopic images, and illustrations to help readers visualize surgical problems and solutions for every case, including revision surgery

This unique book is essential reading for all surgeons who need to prepare for and manage every contingency for the best possible outcomes in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery.

With many service members now returning to the United States from the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, concern over adequate access to behavioral health care (treatment for mental, behavioral, or addictive disorders) has risen. Yet data remain very sparse regarding how many service members (and their dependents) reside in locations remote from behavioral health providers, as well as the resulting effect on their access to and utilization of care. Little is also known about the effectiveness of existing policies and other efforts to improve access to services among this population. To help fill these gaps, a team of RAND researchers conducted a geospatial analysis using TRICARE and other data, finding that roughly 300,000 military service members and 1 million dependents are geographically distant from behavioral health care, and an analysis of claims data indicated that remoteness is associated with lower use of specialty behavioral health care. A review of existing policies and programs discovered guidelines for access to care, but no systematic monitoring of adherence to those guidelines, limiting their value. RAND researchers recommend implementing a geospatial data portal and monitoring system to track access to care in the military population and mark progress toward improvements in access to care. In addition, the RAND team highlighted two promising pathways for improving access to care among remote military populations: telehealth and collaborative care that integrates primary care with specialty behavioral care.
