Neurologic And Neurodegenerative Diseases Of The Larynx

Neurologic And Neurodegenerative Diseases Of The Larynx

Neurologic And Neurodegenerative Diseases Of The Larynx

This comprehensive text summarizes what is known about the myriad of different neurological conditions that cause dysfunction of communication, swallowing, and breathing as it relates to the upper aerodigestive tract. It serves to provide clinicians and scientists, at all levels of experience, a practical and thorough review of these diseases, their management, and frontiers in science. Chapters are written by experts in these conditions from a broad spectrum of medical specialties in order to create a book that is inclusive of diagnostic and therapeutic considerations that clinicians should think about when caring for patients with these conditions. Neurologic and Neurodegenerative Diseases of the Larynx will be an instrumental resource in guiding clinicians to better recognize the subtle and not so subtle voice, swallowing, and airway manifestations of these diseases, and improve management of patient symptoms and concerns in order to maximize both quality of life and longevity. It will aide otolaryngologists, laryngologists, neurologists, speech language pathologists, and other allied health care professionals in developing a more efficient, evidence-based, patient-focused, and multi-specialty approach to managing these complex and challenging patients.

Neurogenic Dysphagia

Neurogenic Dysphagia

This book is a clinical manual that covers the whole spectrum of swallowing and its disorders. It starts with physiology of swallowing, pathophysiology of disordered deglutition, diagnostic methods (clinical and instrumental) and ends with an in-depth’s and up-to-date presentation of current treatment options. The clinically most relevant topics of dysphagia management on the stroke unit and the intensive care unit are dealt with in separate chapters. Also the closely intertwined issue of nutritional management is specifically addressed. Most importantly, the book covers all obligatory topics of the Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)-curriculum, an educational initiative that started in Germany in 2014 and is currently being extended to other European and non-European countries. The book is richly illustrated and an online video section provides a number of typical patient cases. FEES is probably the most commonly chosen method for the objective assessment of swallowing and its disorders. It is used in stroke units, intensive care facilities, geriatric wards but also in rehabilitation clinics and within dedicated outpatient services. This book on neurogenic dysphagia therefore addresses a wide range of different medical disciplines, such as neurologists, geriatricians, intensive care physicians, rehabilitation physicians, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, phoniatrists and also speech-language pathologists.

Sleep And Neurologic Disease

Sleep And Neurologic Disease

Sleep and Neurologic Disease reviews how common neurologic illnesses, such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s dementia impact sleep. In addition, the book discusses how common primary sleep disorders influence neurologic diseases, such as the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and stroke, as well as their association with various primary headache disorders and epilepsy syndromes. The utilization of sleep technology, such as polysomnography, multiple sleep latency testing, actigraphy, laboratory and CSF testing is also covered. The book is written for the practicing neurologist, sleep physician, neuroscientist, and epidemiologist studying sleep. Reviews how common neurological illnesses impact sleep and the impact sleep disorders have on neurologic disease Up-to-date, comprehensive overview written for practicing neurologists, sleep physicians, neuroscientists, and epidemiologists Includes informative discussions on sleep physiology, circadian rhythms, sleep and stroke, and treatment options for neurologists

Neurokids Child Neurology Workbook

Neurokids Child Neurology Workbook

"NeuroKids" is the innovative answer to the clinical challenges in child neurology as workbook and corresponding app. With the basic idea of mind maps, the classic textbook has been further developed to provide more targeted information. An uniform classification allows a quick orientation: The Paediatric Clinical Scouts (PCS) provide a condensed knowledge overview and are a guide to diagnostic work-up and therapeutic decision-making. The PCS concentrate on the single patient and give professional skills for emergency medicine, for health care of chronically ill children and adolescents and rehabilitative and palliative therapy. The PCS are complemented by a comprehensive, precise, internationally oriented drug register as well as schemes for neurological and developmental neurological examination with the evidence of good practice. "I am very happy that NeuroKids was endorsed and supported by the board of the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS). We sincerely believe this is a major step forward in training and educating young and old paediatric neurologists and are therefore extremely happy to collaborate in this project." (Lieven Lagae, President European Paediatric Neurology Society) In cooperation with: European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS) Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Paediatric Neurology and Developmental Medicine, Children's Hospital Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Institute for Medical Education (DAM) Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany Center for International Health (CIH)
