Summary

Understanding Voice Problems: A Physiological Perspective for Diagnosis and Treatment emphasizes the physiological perspective of voice disorders and the behavioral and emotional factors that can influence these changes. Readers will find a strong foundation in normal phonatory physiology and acoustics as well as pathophysiology arising from voice misuse, abuse, or neurological involvement. Coverage includes in depth explorations of patient interviewing, history taking, examination, and testing and discussions of pediatric and geriatric voice considerations.

The book contains numerous illustrations, including full-color plates of vocal fold pathologies. A companion website features nearly 30 video clips that demonstrate healthy, normally functioning larynges at work, plus larynges with various pathological problems.

‘’I love the physiological support in discussing voice disorders and especially in discussing management for disorders; students express difficulty following some sections most notably the anatomy and physiology, The other book presented better anatomy physiology for my needs, but Understanding Voice Problems better meets our course needs with its more expanded sections on disorders seen by SLPs and on the treatment options.’’-B.M., Marshall University
