The most comprehensive reference on voice care and science ever published!
Substantially revised and updated since the previous edition published in 2005, Professional Voice: The Science and Art of Clinical Care, Three-Volume Set, Fourth Edition provides the latest advances in the field of voice care and science. In three volumes, it covers basic science, clinical assessment, nonsurgical treatments, and surgical management. Twenty new chapters have been added. These include an in-depth chapter on pediatric voice disorders, chapters detailing how hormonal contraception, autoimmune disorders, and thyroid disorders affect the voice, as well as chapters on the evolution of technology in the voice care field, and advances in imaging of the voice production system.
The appendices also have been updated. They include a summary of the phonetic alphabet in five languages, clinical history and examination forms, a special history form translated into 15 languages, sample reports from a clinical voice evaluation, voice therapy exercise lists, and others. The multidisciplinary glossary remains an invaluable resource.
