This highly anticipated text is the only publication on pharmacology and ototoxicity written specifically for audiologists. With contributions from leading audiologists, basic scientists, pharmacologists, and otolaryngologists, Pharmacology and Ototoxicity for Audiologists provides both basic and advanced coverage of topics critical to successful clinical practice. Fundamental concepts and terminology of pharmacology, biochemistry of the auditory system, and mechanisms of toxicity are covered, along with specific chapters on drug and noise-induced ototoxicity. This text is absolutely essential for anyone working in the hearing sciences and hearing healthcare.

    • Covers all common ototoxins, including noise, that audiologists must be familiar with
    • Loaded with figures and photos to support comprehension including 8 pages of color photos providing greater detail into pathologies and structures
    • A glossary of key terms accompanies each chapter making difficult terminology easier to master
    • Provides information on new areas emerging in audiology research relevant to ototoxicity and pharmacology
    • Includes information on finding, evaluating, and using websites on hearing loss, ototoxicity, and drugs to better serve consumers of audiologic services
    • The information is covered in the Diagnostics and the Medical Aspects course. I think this area of study is gaining interest in the profession, particularly due to the ground-breaking and cutting-edge research undertaken by the author.

    • Kathleen Campbell, Ph.D., is Professor and Director of Audiology Research at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, Il. She directed and provided audiology services for over 20 years in Canada and the United States but now focuses primarily on both basic and clinical research. For over 20 years, she has also taught audiology to faculty, residents, and medical students in otolaryngology, pediatrics, neurology, primary care, neonatology, and surgery. She is the author of Essential Audiology for Physicians and numerous book chapters and articles. She currently serves on the American Academy of Audiology Board of Directors. She consults in audiology clinical management, clinical trials, and as an expert witness. Dr. Campbell is also a prolific researcher, publishing numerous articles on both basic science and clinical topics in various areas of auditory science and auditory disorders. She is a noted lecturer both nationally and internationally focusing on audiologic assessment of auditory disorders, and particularly ototoxicity, noise-induced hearing loss and otoprotective agents. She has received an NIH Clinical Investigator Development Award, the James A. Shannon Director¿s Award from NIH for her research in ototoxicity, a Special Presidential Citation from the American Academy of Audiology for her work in Professional Practice Standards, has been named an ASHA Fellow and is in Who¿s Who in America. Dr. Campbell also holds several patents for otoprotective agents and is planning clinical trials. Dr. Campbell recently received the 2004 Copper Black Award for Creative Achievement from American Mensa for her work in otoprotective agents.
