Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A(George Washington University)
Description:This updated resource on current trends in the treatment of hearing loss is organized into two main sections, first covering principles of treatment, then important applications for clinical settings. The principles section discusses management of hearing loss with amplification and the applications section provides in-depth information on medical and surgical treatments of all types of hearing loss and auditory processing disorders. The book also covers counseling, implantable products (middle ear implants, cochlear implants), audiologic rehabilitation services, room acoustics, vestibular rehabilitation, and hearing protection. The first edition was published in 2000-2001.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide updated information on new technologies, treatments, and trends in the practice of audiology that have affected the exponential growth of the profession -- both in numbers of professionals studying and entering the field and in its professional stature.
Audience:The editors wrote this as part of a set of three volumes (the others are Audiology: Diagnosis, 2nd edition, and Audiology: Practice Management, 2nd edition) as an effort to "pay back" a modicum of knowledge to the profession. This volume provides audiologists and students in graduate programs with information needed to optimize patient care. The authors are well known in the profession of audiology. Michael Valente is Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology, Division of Audiology, Department of Otolaryngology-Head-Neck Surgery, Washington University Schoolof Medicine; Holly Hosford-Dunn is managing member of the Arizona Audiology Network and President of TAI Inc.; and Ross Roeser is Lois & Howard Wolf Professor of Pediatric Hearing, University of Texas at Dallas, and Executive Director Emeritus, UTD/Callier Center for Communication Disorders.
Features:This second edition includes new chapters on advances in hearing aid technology and electroacoustic analysis of amplification systems, importance of outcome measures to validate hearing aid performance, options for treating those with processing disorders, implantable devices, and new signals for performing real measures on digital products. Each chapter begins with an outline that reviews topics to be covered. Also of note are highlighted boxes with pearls, pitfalls, controversial points, and special considerations that provide recommendations and comments on patient care.
Assessment:This is a very thorough book, with updated information on trends in the practice of audiology -- both amplification and medical/surgical -- for treating hearing loss. It is a worthwhile addition to one's resources.
