This manual is an excellent quick reference resource for clinicians working with dysphagic patients across the continuum of care.

Provides a standardised overview in the anatomy and physiology of swallowing. Focuses on the physiologic factors requisite for the execution of normal swallowing to facilitate a deeper understanding of the swallowing mechanism, which is critical for accurate assessment and targeted treatment. Each component is individually presented and includes customized medical-anatomical illustrations, fluoroscopy visuals, and computer-generated swallow imagery.

Utilise the handy tables and detailed illustrations as a quick reference for the anatomy and neural innervation of specific swallowing structures to better target treatment. Further, this manual advocates for a standardised approach toward the MBS study. Learn how standardised results identify and report specific physiologic impairment, and lead to evidence-based, targeted interventions. The focus is the adult population. Softcover, 76 pages, ©2015.
