Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lindsay Lanciault, MA (Doctor's Community Hospital)
Description: This book provides a general overview of dysphagia evaluation and treatment and then goes on to discuss both evaluation and treatment of dysphagia in specific trauma categories (e.g. spinal cord injury, burn injury, etc.).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide speech-language pathologists with a useful clinical resource for the management of dysphagia in the post-trauma patient. Dysphagia is a common sequela of post-traumatic injury, and these are often complicated patients who require care by a variety of healthcare professionals, including speech-language pathologists (SLP). This book provides SLPs with both specific information on swallow dysfunction in a variety of traumatic injuries and general information regarding acute and long-term care of patients with traumatic injuries. SLPs, especially those working in acute care facilities, often encounter trauma patients and any resource supplying information on clinical care is valuable.
Audience: It is written for speech-language pathologists who work with patients with swallow dysfunction, specifically those who work with patients in acute care/trauma facilities. However, it also would be a valuable addition to any advanced dysphagia course and could also easily be targeted to graduate level students.
Features: The book provides an overview of dysphagia management, covering everything from modified barium swallows to specific treatments. It then goes on to discuss specific traumatic injuries and what an SLP would expect to see with these patients, not only with respect to swallowing. The book excels at providing clear and concise information. The tables outline useful information and are easy to access for quick reference. Several useful diagrams and images also enhance the text.
Assessment: This is a valuable addition to the resource library of any SLP who works in an acute care facility, specifically one who works in a tertiary care facility where trauma patients make up the majority of the caseload. It provides relevant information and a highly accessible format.
