When Charles Bluestone began his practice over 50 years ago, very little was known about middle-ear disease, in spite of its being the most common disease that clinicians in his field encounter. It has now been 40 years since Jack L. Paradise and he conducted their first investigation into the prevalence of otitis media in infants with cleft palate. Since then, he has devoted a major share of his professional career to understanding this disease and its impact on the health care of patients. This second edition includes a focus not only on the structure and function of the Eustachian tube (ET) and its role in the pathogenesis of middle-ear disease and related conditions, but also how this impacts the clinician’s management of middle-ear disease. Presented in this one source is the current state of knowledge of the ET within its “system” (the nasal cavities, nasopharynx, and palate at its proximal end and the middle ear and mastoid gas cells at its distal end). Dr Bluestone also presents his hypotheses when definitive answers or consensus are not currently available. This volume contains a comprehensive review of all the research over the past 150 years along with updates covering the very latest research studies. It is the hope of the author that this second edition will stimulate more studies and help clinicians better understand ET function to provide the best possible health care to patients with middle-ear disease. Key Features: Brief and descriptive text, extensively illustrated. Current advances along with the history of research on the role of the Eustachian tube in middle-ear disease and its treatment.

Review
REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “The text is a worthwhile reference for those in the beginning stages of their career, such as medical students rotating on-service seeing otolaryngology patients and procedures for the first time. Allied health professionals serving otolaryngology patients may use it as a quick reference during clinics. It is especially useful to trained otolaryngologists seeking to rapidly review an organized handheld resource for board examination review. . . .Overall, this is a very nice reference. I would recommend this as a part of every training otolaryngologist’s library, designating it as especially useful for a comprehensive yet succinct board review.” –Kristen Hurst, University of Iowa, Annals of Otology, Rhinology, & Laryngology (2015)

REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION: “I have rarely learnt so much, in seconds of thumbing through a textbook, as I did reading about central sleep apnoea…[It] is ideal for fast access reference and revision on the flight to the exit exams! In practice I have opened this many times, picking subjects at random and found the writing style reader friendly throughout.” –Liam M. Flood, FRCS, FRCSI, James Cook University Hospital, Journal of Laryngology & Otology (2013)

Home eBooks & eLearning Sound: A Story of Hearing Lost and Found (Wellcome)

 ENT  Comments Off on Home eBooks & eLearning Sound: A Story of Hearing Lost and Found (Wellcome)
Mar 112018
 

‘By the summer of 1998, it had become clear that there was something wrong with my hearing. It didn’t happen suddenly but softly, so softly I almost wasn’t aware of it happening; sound seemed to have stolen away …’

For twelve years, Bella Bathurst was deaf. She missed the punchlines and the jokes, avoided busy restaurants and raucous parties, and grew her hair long to cover hearing aids. But then, twelve years later, pioneering surgery on her ears gave her the chance to hear again.

Sound is the extraordinary story of Bella’s journey into deafness and back to hearing. Mixing memoir with interviews with soldiers, sign language experts, musicians and mental health workers, Bella explores what it means to live with and without sound, and in the process uncovers a hidden world of sense and connection.

If sight gives us the world, then hearing – or our ability to listen – gives us each other. Warm, wry and honest, this is a story not just for the one in six of us with hearing loss, but for everyone who ever listened.

Published in partnership with the Wellcome Collection.

Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library that aims to challenge how we think and feel about health. Inspired by the medical objects and curiosities collected by Henry Wellcome, it connects science, medicine, life and art. Wellcome Collection exhibitions, events and books explore a diverse range of subjects, including consciousness, forensic medicine, emotions, sexology, identity and death.

Wellcome Collection is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive, funding over 14,000 researchers and projects in more than 70 countries.
