Clinical Management of Swallowing Disorders, Fifth Edition is a textbook for speech-language pathology programs that examines the diagnosis and treatment of swallowing disorders in children and adults. Thoroughly updated, this popular text emphasizes evidence-based practice, multidisciplinary team management, swallowing safety, nutrition, behavioral treatments, and management following surgical options. Authored by two speech-language pathologists and an otolaryngologist for a multidisciplinary approach, the Fifth Edition continues to be easy-to-understand text for students and also serves as an up-to-date reference for practicing clinicians who treat swallowing disorders in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and private outpatient clinics.
The text comes with online supplementary materials, including instructor lecture slides, study flash cards, and downloadable versions of the appendicies.

"This is a very attractive book, with glossy pages, sharp printing of images, high-quality colour illustrations and clear labelling. It is very nicely set out, with boxed tables, highlighted bullet points and case studies, and even the textbook carries many a question and answer session. As a simple ex-otologist, I learnt much from this book, having had quite an insight into the symptom during the past year, but I am confident trainees will derive great benefit from it. [...] The textbook is a very comprehensive review of the subject, with impressively updated content. It should appeal to the senior laryngologist as much as the trainee, and is, of course, essential reading for speech and language pathologists, dieticians, and all in the multidisciplinary team."
—Liam M. Flood, FRCS, FRCSI, in Journal of Laryngology & Otology (February 2021)
"The book is intended for use as a training tool for students in the field of speech-language pathology studying swallowing and swallowing disorders. The authors state that the fifth edition provides updated information from previous editions and includes a new chapter on aging and swallowing. This book meets its objectives as a comprehensive tool for training students in the topic of dysphagia. The addition of the online material adds great value to the textbook. The videos of MBS and FEES exams in particular add great value to the learning experience of the students and the quality of instruction for professors.
This book is intended for undergraduate and graduate level students in speech-language pathology training programs. It is appropriate for the intended audience as it provides foundational background information in anatomy and physiology of swallowing as well as assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders. Dr. Murry is a well-known expert in the field of swallowing disorders, and his coauthors' experience in otolaryngology and swallowing research support their expertise in this area.
The book is comprehensive as an educational tool on the topic of swallowing and swallowing disorders. The writing is clear and an appropriate level for the audience it is intended for. The detailed diagrams included are clear and helpful, and the study questions at the end of each chapter help students summarize what they read in the chapter. [...]
For me, the highlight of the book under review is its online resources. The videos in particular are very helpful for student learning."
