The Adult Dysphagia Pocket Guide: Neuroanatomy to Clinical Practice is a concise, easily portable reference guide designed specifically for the dysphagia clinician. It centers on the clinical application of normal and abnormal swallowing physiology as it relates to cranial nerves, muscles, and innervations.

The text merges clinical neurophysiology of the swallow directly to assessment and treatment of dysphagia to provide quick access of key clinical information and solutions for clinicians as they are completing their swallowing assessments. A discussion of laboratory values and medications in chapters three and four and how they can impact dysphagia adds another layer of uniqueness to this guide. Recurring "clinician's note" and "research to practice" boxes are based on the current research and provide practical and useful tips for clinicians.

The Adult Dysphagia Pocket Guide is a "quick reference" that answers the need for a practical guide that new clinicians, graduate students, and even seasoned clinicians can carry with them and readily access while they are completing their evaluations. It is a must-have resource for any speech-language pathologist treating dysphagia.
