With two new chapters, improved artwork, and significant updates made throughout to increase readability, the fourth edition of Audiology: Science to Practice continues to be the most comprehensive textbook  for audiology and hearing science courses, as well as for health care  professionals wanting a better understanding of hearing science and  audiology practices. It is written in a style that makes new or  difficult concepts relatively easy to understand, while still providing  more coverage of hearing and vestibular science and clinical audiology  than other introductory texts.

Topics include  information about the profession of audiology, acoustics, anatomy and  physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, preparing for the  patient, otoscopy, pure-tone audiometry and speech measures, audiogram  interpretations, masking, tympanometry, acoustic reflexes, wideband  acoustic immittance, otoacoustic emissions, auditory brainstem  responses, hearing screening, hearing aids, assistive listening aides,  cochlear and other implantable devices, vestibular evaluation,  descriptions of auditory and vestibular disorders, and aural  rehabilitation. There is also a chapter on the roles of speech-language  pathologists related to understanding and caring for persons with  hearing and balance concerns. Where relevant, the material includes  evidence-based practice.
