Additional Book Details
Dysphagia Following Stroke, Third Edition is a practical and easy-to-use resource for clinicians treating swallowing disorders in the stroke population. The authors bridge the gap between academic and clinical practice with up-to-date research and clinical case examples throughout.
In addition to a thorough overview of dysphagia diagnosis and management, this text focuses heavily on evaluation and management of stroke. Key topics include neural underpinnings of normal and disordered swallowing, swallowing screening, the clinical swallowing examination including cough reflex testing, the expanding array of instrumental swallowing modalities, and the rehabilitation of swallowing including strength training, non-invasive brain stimulation, and skill training. While geared toward practicing clinicians, Dysphagia Following Stroke is also useful for students in professional training programs.
