This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
This book provides in-depth coverage specific to dysphagia research with a much broader spectrum of neuromuscular diseases, and employs a physiologically based taxonomy. It outlines the levels of the neuromuscular system, extending from the central nervous system to the muscle, with chapters devoted to diseases that are representative of pathologies at each level. It also outlines normal respiratory physiology and airway defense mechanisms, and discusses approaches to evaluation, management and treatment.
