9780805858945: An Essential Guide to Hearing and Balance Disorders

An Essential Guide to Hearing and Balance Disorders consolidates the most significant clinical aspects of hearing and balance disorders, ranging from cause and diagnosis to treatment and cure. Experts in various subspecialties of this extensive topic introduce readers to the most sophisticated and state of the art methods of diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter expands on a specific topic area along the continuum of how medical personnel diagnose hearing and balance disorders, to how surgical implantation of the cochlea and rehabilitation can remedy various conditions.

In concise format, the book begins with a case history and follows with comprehensive descriptions of current knowledge regarding fundamental causes of hearing loss and balance disorders, as well as a thorough examination of objective assessment. The latter half of the volume presents specialized treatment and rehabilitative options for various disorders. The chapters in this part cover special topics and conclude with pertinent case studies. Unique areas of discussion in a text of this kind include:

  • genetics of deafness
  • pediatric hearing loss and hearing loss later in life
  • business essentials in audiology private practice
  • professional issues, such as ethics, methods of practice, and conflicts of interest.

As its title implies, this book is critically important for all students and professionals in hearing/balance related disciplines, including audiology, otolaryngology, general medicine, and rehabilitation oriented allied health care occupations.

About the Author:

R. Steven Ackley, Ph.D.is director of the Au.D. and Ph.D. programs in audiology at Gallaudet University where he is director of the Electrophysiology and Balance Center. He was department chair of Communication Disorders at the University of Northern Colorado prior to his appointment at Gallaudet, and he was associate professor of audiology at Colorado State University from 1984-1992. He is a guest researcher at NIH/NIDCD, Bethesda, Maryland and his publications include studies of electrophysiology, cochlear histology, perilymph fistula, Down syndrome, and vestibular assessment. He had a hospital appointment at Kaiser Permanente, Denver, Colorado from 1987-2000 and a private practice specializing in auditory electrophysiological assessment during that time.  

Review:

"This textbook, literally, exceeds the claim of its title.  It is, indeed, the quintessential reference source for professionals and students working in the hearing and vestibular sciences.  Readers will find this text to be an immediately useful and practical guide to the diagnosis, treatment and management of patients with hearing and balance disorders."―Jerry L. Northern, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado School of Medicine
