Obesity and Voice: Current Views and Future Trends examines obesity-related voice research and suggests future research trends on the link between weight loss, weight gain, obesity, and phonation.

Obesity is becoming one of the leading causes of disabilities and death. This unique text highlights the various means by which excessive weight, and weight loss, may jeopardize voice quality and endurance. All three components of voice production, the respiratory system and abdominal back and thoracic muscles as the power source, the vocal folds as the oscillator, and the vocal tract as the resonator, are targets of anatomic and systemic obesity-induced changes. Consequently, phonatory effects of obesity are inevitable.

Considering the epidemic nature of obesity, obesity-related voice research is a critical topic for anyone interested in conditions affecting the voice, especially professional voice users and physicians.

Reviews

"The book starts with an extensive overview of anatomy and physiology. The content is exceptional and there are pictures to complement the text. The chapters on evaluation cover many questions that clinicians should consider in the history taking along with their rationale and then provides excellent information about objective evaluation methods. The next section of the book delves into obesity and the potential impact to the voice. This is more or less broken down into separate body systems: body size or fat distribution, sex hormones, the respiratory system, the digestive systems and impact of reflux. The remainder of the book covers nutrition and the theoretical impact of weight loss on the voice. The most impressive aspect of this book is the review of current literature on each of the topics and the authors' discussions of the impact or potential impact on the voice based on the existing evidence."
