Swallowing, from soup to nuts. Well, not literally, but the emphasis in the title of this book must truly fall upon the word comprehensive.
Written by an array of well over 50 authors, this weighty tome brings perspective from a multitude of interdisciplinary team members. It is especially strong on the physician’s viewpoints, which makes it an indispensable resource for discussing swallowing disorders with our medical brethren.
The opening chapter gives meaningful information on the epidemiology of dysphagia- statistics and data that can support your program development efforts. Next, evaluation theory and procedure follow a strong pair of chapters on anatomy and physiology from each involved specialty. Both clinical and instrumental evaluation methods are covered in some depth.
