The diagnosis and treatment of swallowing disorders continues to evolve into a major medical discipline that traverses multiple medical specialties, especially speech-language pathologists and otolaryngologists. This third edition of Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders is a core textbook that addresses the needs of those who will treat swallowing disorders as well as those clinicians who currently treat swallowing disorders in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes and in private outpatient clinics. The essential aspects of dysphagia management are presented in a format that both beginners and clinicians needing a practical update on dysphagia will find useful.
The third edition addresses clinical issues in a concise way, provides handy tabular information, and offers practical treatment options for a wide variety of swallowing problems with medical, surgical and behavioral treatment models. The text focuses on treatment of swallowing disorders and avoids long discussions on the causes and complications of many neuromuscular diseases and neurological conditions that result in dysphagia. The Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders offers the practicing clinician a reference text of the procedures for the management of swallowing disorders.

As swallowing disorders are difficult for many clinicians to manage, this book is a useful tool. The authors describe different management options, highlighting how management varies depending on the patient and underlying etiology of the swallowing disorder... This is a well-written book for the intended audience and is a good clinical overview of a challenging medical problem. --Alan Micco, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine), Doody's, (December 2012)
This edition differs from its predecessor most notably by the inclusion of new outcome data and an additional chapter focusing on pediatric swallowing disorders... [T]he book should be appropriate for any practitioner trying to better understand the complex array of swallowing disorders. --Nathan Gonik, MD, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology, (2012)
"This is a comprehensive and readable text on swallowing disorders. The are boxed key to points to emphasize important areas of knowledge and summary tables throughout. This clinically focused book is likely to be most useful for speech-language pathologists, but would be invaluable to otolaryngologists wishing to have a thorough understanding of swallowing disorders and their management. The textbook has an associated workbook and CD. The workbook provides true/false, multiple chose, written, and project-based questions as a useful way of summarising and consolidating knowledge from each chapter of the book. The CD provides excellent accompanying resources including seven short high-quality video clips of fibreoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) in various clinical conditions, along with an explanatory powerpoint presentation highlighting key features of each video and condition. This is not just a textbook, but a comprehensive package of knowledge to allow the reader to consolidate and improve his/her understanding of swallowing disorders and teach others from the provided resources."

The Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders; 3rd edition, by Thomas Murry and Ricardo Carrau, is set apart from other dysphagia texts by its unflagging adherence to a clinical focus on the management of swallowing disorders. It is a difficult task to cover such a broad topic as dysphasia evaluation and management succinctly, but the authors do this well. From two different clinical perspectives, the authors share their vast experience in a straightforward writing style.
This text provides the speech-language pathology students, new practicing speech-language pathologists, medical student, or resident a practical framework for the diagnosis and management of swallowing problems by providing a thorough overview of dyshpagia etiology, an expanded glossary, and easy-to-comprehend explanations of complex disease processes. Study questions at the end of each chapter gives readers the chance to assess their comprehension of the chapter's subject matter, while a discussion question encourages readers to apply this knowledge further. In addition, the authors refer readers to additional resources beyond the text and provide an excellent up-to-date review of the literature. This allows the bibliography for each chapter to become a starting point for further learning.
...More seasoned dysphagia therapists will find this book a quick, practical reference text... This 3rd edition includes a new chapter on pediatric swallowing disorders, which nicely rounds out the topics included in the text... In the end, the authors are able to fluidly distill the complexity of a broad disorder such as dysphagia into a readable format. This book meets the need for a thorough, yet concise, text that conveys the most pertinent information in an accessible manner. --Ashli O'Rourke, MD, Head & Neck 36: 152, (Jan 2014)
