Featured here are contributions from a wide range of disciplines, including pediatric otorhinolaryngology, broncho-esophagology, pediatrics, phoniatrics, audiology, cardiovascular surgery, linguistics, phonetics, acoustics, speech pathology, electrical and biomedical engineering, and information technology. Collectively, they describe over 40 different pathological sounds-occurring in different combinations-in more than 50 different pathological conditions. All are depicted visually and aurally through spectograms, endoscopic photos, radiologic or MRI pictures, and sound recordings on an accompanying CD-ROM to demonstrate the acoustic characteristics of the pathological sound phenomena, the different irregular or unusual sounds occurring, and the characteristic of each respiratory or neuro-developmental disease and disorder. The extensive coverage of the latest therapeutic options for each disease or disorder renders this book a virtual guide to every aspect of pediatric laryngology.
