Overview

Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders, Fourth Edition is a core graduate-level textbook that addresses the needs of students who will treat swallowing disorders as well as clinicians who currently treat swallowing disorders in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and private outpatient clinics. The Fourth Edition has been revised to bring the reader up to date in all aspects of the management of swallowing disorders.

New to the Fourth Edition:

  • Full-color images throughout
  • Two new chapters that focus on the instrumental evaluation of swallowing (Chapter 6) and feeding and swallowing treatment options with infants and children (Chapter 10)
  • Liberal use of tables that highlight text material
  • Revised detailed glossary to explain medical and surgical terminology
  • Extensively revised throughout to contain current information, reviews, and definitions
  • A PluralPlus companion website with an image bank and lecture slides for instructors, and video examples of actual patients, flashcards of glossary terms, and the appendices from the book in printable form for students


Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders, Fourth Edition examines the diagnosis and treatment of swallowing disorders in children and adults and emphasizes team management, swallowing safety, nutrition, behavioral treatments, and surgical options. The diagnosis and treatment of swallowing disorders is a major medical discipline that traverses multiple medical specialties, especially speech-language pathology and otolaryngology. The essential aspects of dysphagia management are presented in a format that both beginners and clinicians needing a practical update on dysphagia will find useful.

A workbook is also available to aid instructors in the delivery of content and to enhance and reinforce student comprehension.
