Clinical Cases in Dysphagia Book Description :

Dysphagia is a complex condition that can have significant social, developmental and psychological effects. Alongside the physiology and pathophysiology of the condition, dysphagia can rob patients of the most basic pleasures, such as eating and drinking, causing ongoing difficulties for individuals in social situations throughout the lifespan. As an acknowledged component of evidence-based practice, the humble case report encourages clinical reflection and may be the spark that generates new thinking and motivation for future research. Clinical Cases in Dysphagia provides an opportunity to gain insight into the unique and varied presentation and management of dysphagia across a range of different conditions. With chapters provided by expert clinicians and based on clinical examples ‘from the trenches’, the reader may gain insights into their own practice patterns, refining their clinical problem solving and valuing the education that is offered to each of us by our patients. With additional online resources to support the case-based approach, the book emphasizes the importance of multidisciplinary care and reflects everyday clinical practice, making it a must-read for clinicians and students.

Davidson s 100 Clinical Cases E Book Book Description :

Davidson’s 100 Clinical Cases was awarded First Prize in Medicine in the 2009 British Medical Association Medical Book Awards. This book reflects the real world in which doctors practise medicine. The selection of clinical problems guides the reader, step by step, through the correct path in the maze between the presenting complaint of a patient and the final diagnosis. The text emphasises the value of interpreting available clinical and investigative information in a logical way before considering a definitive diagnosis. The 100 cases are based on the ‘presenting problems’ of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine. The book provides an international outlook reflecting the differences in the practice of medicine in the developing world and in low-resource settings, and addresses the epidemiological, economic and other reasons for many of these important differences. The cases are written by a team of senior doctors, from 12 countries, with considerable teaching experience. The book now includes 100 cases all closely linked to the ‘presenting problems’ sections of the latest 21st Edition of Davidson’s Principles and Practice of Medicine. In this expanded new edition there are many new cases including aluminium phosphide poisoning; occupational lung disease; tremor; and drug interactions.

Dysphagia Evaluation and Treatment Book Description :

This book presents a comprehensive approach to treating dysphagia that has been successfully applied in actual rehabilitation settings. Its main purposes are firstly to equip readers with a strong conceptual understanding of swallowing evaluation and treatment, secondly to provide guidance on the procedure of practical comprehensive dysphagia rehabilitation in real-world settings, and thirdly to update readers on the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies. To do so, it employs the concept of swallowing rehabilitation pioneered at Fujita Health University Rehabilitation. The book is divided into 4 major sections, the first of which introduces readers to the general aspects and the principle of deglutition. In turn, Part II offers clinical approaches to both non-instrumental and instrumental evaluation of swallowing. Part III addresses treatment options in swallowing rehabilitation, especially exercises based on motor learning. Lastly, Part IV highlights three clinical cases demonstrating clinical approaches in dysphagic patients. Readers will find this text useful both as an initial guide and a reference work for assisting clinicians, allowing them to further expand swallowing assessment and treatment, and facilitating the development of swallowing rehabilitation in real-world settings in education and rehabilitation.
