This book for professionals in pediatrics discusses pathologic sound originating in the respiratory tract that may signify diseases in children. A significant update from a 1982 text because of new technologies, chapters discuss examination using conventional methods, endoscopy, acoustic measurements and sound spectrography, and frequency measurement; analysis using digital signal processing; characterization and acoustic description of commonly occurring sound signals (types of cry, stridor, and cough); and finally airway and nervous anomalies associated with pathologic sound production. The accompanying CDROM contains audio samples for study.
