About The Book

Dysphagia Post Trauma is a premier book in the Clinical Dysphagia Series. The authors are world renown for their research and clinical insights into the often-challenging patterns of dysphagia caused by a variety of traumatic conditions. This book, like all the books in this series, is written with the practicing clinician in mind. Traumatic brain injury and all other traumatic injuries that influence swallowing are described. The emphasis on evaluation and treatment is described so clearly and thoroughly that a clinician can review relevant chapters and then confidently approach the bedside of even the most complicated patient. This is the one critical swallowing book for those clinicians with traumatically injured men, women, and children on their caseloads.
