This comprehensive manual provides a clinical, yet practical, approach to treating tracheostomized and ventilator-dependent patients. Its organizational structure is conducive to learning, as information builds on itself progressively from chapter to chapter. Learners are provided with the clinical and case research information pertaining to specific aspects of care and are encouraged to apply that information to their patient's needs on an individualized basis. Emphasis is also placed on individualizing treatment and assessment protocols.

Marketing Coordinator for SingularReview:
"The quality of the book is exceptional. It is an excellent tool for a practicing speech-language pathologist in a medical or rehabilitative setting and also for those in academia. It provides the reader with a core foundation of not only disordered respiratory and phonatory systems but also normal systems from which to gain a better understanding of how to provide treatment. The chapter on non-oral communication is extensive and extremely helpful for not only ventilator-dependent adults but those with other debilitating neurological impairments. It was important to produce a second edition due to the advances speech-language pathologists have made in the management of dysphagia and the inclusion of therapists on interdisciplinary teams." -- Catherine Baer Coleman, Divine
