A classic work, now in its fourth edition, Clinical Voice Pathology is a distillation of the authors’ many years of experience gained in a multitude of settings, across a huge range of disorders in populations through the life spectrum, and represents etiologies arising from medical, environmental, social, psychological, occupational, and even idiopathic threats to vocal health.
Whether typical voice user, occupational voice user, elite vocal performer, head and neck cancer client, or anyone who has lost the ability to communicate competently and confidently due to detrimental voice change, each patient presents a unique diagnostic dilemma: how best to return the voice to optimal condition?
In answering this question, the authors assert that voice pathologists must apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology, etiologic correlates, laryngeal pathologies, and differential diagnosis to conduct an accurate evaluation. Traditional clinical management requires well-developed skills in the interpersonal interview, behavioral observation and modification, and task selection and elicitation. The contemporary voice assessment no longer relies solely on audio-perceptual voice quality judgments, but also demands technical expertise in using voice laboratory instruments for acoustic analysis, aerodynamic measures, and laryngeal imaging to help inform the management plan. Finally, we can only succeed when we have educated our patients to understand and self-monitor voice production behaviors independently and accurately.
