The Adult Audiology Casebook, released by Thieme Publishers, New York, NY, in December 2014, is a compendium of key clinical cases designed to help clinicians develop the critical thinking skills necessary to diagnose and treat patients. The more than 70 cases included in the book are written by experts from around the world who share their experiences in dealing with a range of challenging clinical scenarios.
An important classroom resource, the Adult Audiology Casebook gives readers expert guidance on providing best practice care in the areas of hearing disorders, the diagnosis of auditory and vestibular disorders, amplification, cochlear implants, hearing assistive technology, and management of tinnitus. The book includes nearly 200 color audiograms, and a question and answer series for each case, followed by a summary of key points.
According to the publishers, this textbook is essential reading for graduate level audiology students who want to sharpen and enhance their clinical skills. It can also serve as a valuable teaching tool for audiology and speech pathology professors, as well as a practical reference for practicing audiologists, otolaryngologists, and ENT residents in their daily practice.
This first edition of Adult Audiology Casebook was written by Michael Valente and L. Maureen Valente. It can be used as a companion book to the Pediatric Audiology Casebook, by Jane Madell and Carol Flexer, which was published by Thieme in 2011.
