Pediatric Aerodigestive Disorders

Kenan Haver

Featuring topics by a wide range health care professionals across the specialties who care for children with these disorders, Pediatric Aerodigestive Disorders presents a clinical set of problems that are disease, not specialty specific, and approaches them from the various standpoints of the different specialties to highlight how each can work together to identify a unified diagnosis and proper treatment.

This philosophy is based on a five-year experience between the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, where a core team of pediatric otolaryngologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and speech-language pathologists see patients together, viewing them from differing perspectives, using different tests to arrive at diagnoses, and performing joint procedures as necessary.

The outcome is a book and DVD package that is at once novel, exciting, and educational. It represents a cross-fertilization of thoughts and ideas from a seemingly diverse group of specialists that focuses on specific pediatric disease-based and pediatric voice pathology-based topics.

Hearing Loss: The Otolaryngologist’s Guide to Amplification

Richard Seewald

Currently, most hearing loss cannot be helped by surgery or medications. The most appropriate treatment for most sensorineural and some conductive hearing loss is with properly fitted hearing aids. This textbook, representing the collaborative efforts of leading otologists and audiologists, is designed for otolaryngologists, both those in training as well as in practice, to enhance the basic knowledge of hearing aid mechanics and dispensing taught in residency programs.

The text has informative chapters on special testing, real-ear measurements, the requirements of fitting the pediatric patient with hearing loss, as well as the patient with tinnitus and hearing loss that otolaryngologists can expect to see commonly in practice. The increasing body of the “science” of hearing aid fitting is addressed in chapters covering evidence-based prescribing of hearing aids, as well as future trends to be expected in hearing aid and otologic research. Practical suggestions on professional marketing of hearing aids, as well as a breakdown of the economics of hearing aid dispensing to enhance profitability in today’s increasingly difficult practice environment are also well covered.

The text is sure to enhance the knowledge base of the otolaryngologist in one of the fastest growing areas within the specialty.
