9780674510852: Laryngeal Biomechanics (Commonwealth Fund Book)

For its size, the larynx is the most complex and versatile mechanical device in the body. In this remarkable book, a distinguished medical illustrator and a world authority on laryngeal biomechanics collaborate to provide both an atlas and a treatise on the behavior of the larynx. In separate chapters the authors consider the functions of the larynx - as safeguard for the free passage of air, to protect the airway from invasion, as a plug that resist expiration during effort, and as the instrument of speech and song. They replace the traditional view of the larynx as a sphincter with a more accurate model. The illustrations include unretouched x-rays, halftone sketches, structural drawings, and diagrams; together they present as complete a picture as possible of the larynx in all its various functional states.
