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.

 

New to This Edition:

  • An entire chapter on clinical masking procedures has been added to this edition.
  • Assess as You Progress features place questions in the margins throughout the text with the answers located at the bottoms of the pages so that readers can test their knowledge of new information as they read.
  • Website references are listed at the end of most chapters, offering students the opportunity to explore topics in further detail.
  • Evolving Case Studies features have been expanded so that readers can easily follow select disorders chapter by chapter through diagnosis and recommended treatment. This feature is designed to enhance students' understanding of comprehensive patient management from case history through discharge.
  • Two new videos along with an updated and expanded Professional Resource section have been added to the new Companion Website.
  • Various sections have been expanded to increase student comprehension, including management of auditory processing disorders, the role of the audiologist in vestibular management, and the role of the audiologist in the counseling process.
