Since the first edition was published, there has been a great deal of interest in laryngopharyngeal reflux. Research has revealed new information; diagnostic and treatment paradigms have changed; and new medical and surgical therapies have been developed. This latest edition highlights these new developments and cites many articles that were not referenced in the third edition.
This book is designed to be a useful reference for the practicing Otolaryngologist, but is also appropriate for the ENT resident, medical student, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or physical therapist dealing with dizziness. It is also a helpful study tool on otology related topics for the otolaryngology boards.
Written by an international group of airway surgeons, Airway Reconstruction Surgical Dissection Manual is an essential guide for residents and fellows in the fields of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, general surgery, and thoracic surgery, as well as consultant surgeons in these specialties who are responsible for managing airway conditions, but infrequently perform open airway surgeries.
This manual covers everything the trainee requires for mastering open airway surgical procedures on a live animal and extrapolating these techniques to human patients. It is extensively detailed for the beginner or for the experienced surgeon perfecting his or her technique, and can be used by the individual working at his or her own pace or in a group setting.
For the third edition, the authors have completely revised the text, updating the medical information and expanding the exercises. They have also added three new chapters:A chapter entitled "Singing in the 21st Century" that considers the vocal/choral demands of the choral repertoire being written in this century.A chapter on teaching young boys to sing written by Vic Oakes, the conductor of the Chattanooga Boys Choir.A chapter entitled "The Value of Lifelong Singing."
With its updates and additions, Choral Pedagogy, Third Edition, is a valuable resource for students of choral conducting, music education, church music, and choral singing.
