Introduction to Audiology, Eleventh Edition, provides in-depth coverage of the physics of sound; the anatomy of the auditory system; the causes and treatment of hearing and balance disorders; and the relevant diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for these disorders. Now including a new chapter on clinical masking as well as new internet resources, this leading text continues to emphasize the proper evaluation of hearing disorders and the treatment avenues available for these disorders. The accompanying Interactive Companion Website features a variety of videos depicting clinical topics, a series of clinical case studies, multiple-choice questions with immediate feedback, interactive exercises for students to evaluate their comprehension of information, printable clinical forms, and much more. The new edition of this textbook also includes expanded sections on the management of auditory processing disorders, the role of the audiologist in vestibular management, and the role of the audiologist in the counseling process.

Review:

“This is an extraordinarily excellent text, well deserved to be the most widely used text in courses in diagnostic Audiology in the U.S.”

- Maurice H. Miller, New York University

 

“I see each piece of this text as quite necessary to achieving its goal of acquainting the reader with the profession and practice of audiology, from the introductory chapters, through the diagnostic procedures and anatomy and physiology, to the issues in audiologic management of patients.”

- Scott K. Griffiths,Ph.D, University of Florida

 

 “The text is user-friendly and well organized.”

- Karen McNealy,Marshall University

This highly valuable accompaniment to the text is a proven resource for both students and those taking comprehensive national examinations. Containing both visual and auditory examples, the Companion Website is divided into several sections including:

-   Anatomical diagrams                                    -   Assessments                       

-   Simulated hearing losses                               -   Hearing test instructions

-   Ethics/scope of practice                                -   Clinical demonstrations

-   Case studies (acoustic neuroma,

     auditory lesion, etc.)

 

And much more! A one-stop enhancement for content mastery.

Now in its eleventh edition, Introduction to Audiology has been thoroughly revised to reflect new research and to expand its coverage of numerous topics, while retaining its original dedication to the proper evaluation and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. Through well-organized modules, which enable instructors to customize the order in which they assign chapters, this new edition contains coverage of the physics of sound, the anatomy of the auditory system, the causes and treatment of hearing and balance disorders, and the relevant diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for these disorders.

 

Introduction to Audiology not only presents students with a comprehensive and well-organized look at hearing issues, it also gives readers a number of vital tools to help them better understand, retain, and analyze the material. A number of in-text pedagogical tools, paired with an interactive Companion Website of case studies, demonstrations, and self-assessments, make this introduction to hearing and balance disorders truly unique.
