A Case-Based Companion Text to the Bestselling “Pediatric Audiology”
|Pressemitteilung von: Thieme Publishers|
|(openPR) - New York/Stuttgart, March 2011 – “Pediatric Audiology Casebook,” published by Thieme, melds learning and clinical application by providing cases and analysis to aid readers in a wide range of diagnostic decisions. In fact, it is also a perfect companion text to the authors’ bestselling “Pediatric Audiology.”
“How refreshing it is to see a text that dispenses with exposition and makes the experiences of master clinicians available to the reader—student and seasoned practitioner alike,” says Arthur Boothroyd, PhD.
Featuring 69 cases that include both common and uncommon situations, this user-friendly text is ideal for both students and clinicians. “By reading cases in an area in which we do not practice, we may recognize issues in our patients that might require referral,” says co-editor Jane Madell, PhD, CCC A, Pediatric Audiology Consulting.
To facilitate analysis and problem-solving, the book presents a variety of cases including basic and complex diagnostic cases, the management of technologies like hearing aids and cochlear implants, vestibular issues, and the management of auditory development. All chapters follow an easily understandable format, and guide the reader from assessment and diagnosis through treatment and outcome.
“By reading the auditory management cases, among others, the audiologist may recognize other issues in children they are seeing, including sensory processing issues, sensory integration issues, autism, etc.,” says Dr. Madell. “By recognizing concomitant concerns in our children, audiologists can offer them the best holistic management.”
