Overview

Clinical Anatomy and Physiology of the Swallow Mechanism explores the science behind the swallow mechanism and considers factors not typically covered in traditional communication sciences and disorders anatomy and physiology books, but that are crucial to understanding normal and abnormal swallow performance. This book examines the oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal components of the adult swallow mechanism and identifies normal structure and morphology as well as structural and physiological abnormalities. It is organized to lead the reader through anatomical and physiological structures and functions as they would be encountered in a diagnostic evaluation of the swallow mechanism. A clinical framework is provided to aid in the accurate, effective, and efficient diagnosis and management of individuals with swallowing disorders.
