About this Textbook

Principles of Deglutition is the first in class comprehensive multidisciplinary textbook to encompass the entire field of normal and disordered deglutition. It is designed as the definitive text for all those who desire to further their knowledge of the dynamic and expanding field of deglutology. The text is created to serve as a treasured reference for clinicians, educators and trainees from such diverse backgrounds as gastroenterology, speech language pathology, otolaryngology, rehabilitation medicine, radiology and others.

Principles of Deglutition brings together the state-of-knowledge from 12 disciplines involved in dysphagia through contributions of over one hundred thought leaders and master clinicians for the benefit of patients and providers alike. It concisely organizes the wealth of knowledge that exists in each of the contributing disciplines into one comprehensive information platform.

Principles of Deglutition provides a one-stop destination for members of all specialties to obtain state-of-the-art and critically reviewed information regarding deglutition physiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. It delivers a comprehensive and in depth review of deglutition related cerebral cortical, brainstem, peripheral nerves, and neuromuscular mechanisms, advanced diagnostic modalities and standard of care and cutting edge medical, rehabilitative and surgical treatments. It is an essential reference for all deglutologists.

About the authors

Dr. Shaker is one the founders of the Dysphagia Research Society and the Medical College of Wisconin's Dysphagia Institute.  Dr. Shaker is internationally recognized for his studies of deglutition and deglutition disorders, gastroesophageal reflux disease and cerebral cortical control of gastrointestinal sensory motor function. His research has led to some of the seminal discoveries in the area of airway protection and has opened new avenues of investigation and treatment for patients with swallowing disorders. He developed the rehabilitative exercises for treatment of upper esophageal sphincter dysphagia: The `Shaker Exercises` commonly used in clinical practice. 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book examines the principles of swallowing, including basic physiology, and related disorders. … The objectives are worthy, as a comprehensive book on this topic is difficult to come by. It is written for anyone interested in learning more about swallowing and its related disorders. … The chapters are a collection of articles on the various topics, each with pertinent illustrations/graphics. … This is a useful, up-to-date, comprehensive reference on swallowing and its related disorders.” (Inna Athar Husain, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2013)
