On my SLP team, we share freely with each other the things we are learning and what The role of fiberoptic endoscopy in dysphagia rehabilitation. Higher level cognitive impairments involving organizational and sequencing skills may cause difficulty for patients undertaking appropriate strategies [8, 9, 40]. However, it was unclear whether these results were due to improvements at the ‘muscle level alone or neuroplastic modifications as well’ . Clark H, Lazarus C, Arvedson J, Schooling T, Frymark T.

Factors affecting ability to resume oral nutrition in the oropharyngeal dysphagic individual. The social and psychological impacts of dysphagia can reduce patients’ quality of life . Morgan A, Ward E, Murdoch B. they are really at end of life (or needing a tube feeding). Tracheotomised patients with TBI are likely to be dysphagic because of their neurological impairment, medications , intercurrent medical co-morbidities , or a combination of these factors. Some studies involving TBI subjects even include other subjects with head and neck cancers  and dysphagia due to other structural/anatomical issues ., The majority of research into neurogenic dysphagia has, however, focused on subjects with CVA [23••, 24–27]. 2002;17:197–201. Tumor Reducing food/fluid intake volume and speed can help prevent pharyngeal pooling and aspiration in patients with delayed or weak pharyngeal swallows . 1989;3(1):19–26. Dysphagia Treatment is decided upon once a diagnosis is confirmed however many facets should be involved in that determination The clinician will choose a treatment program, based on the etiology, mental and physical capacity, and quality of life. Additionally, these postures are not effective in every patient [78–80] and there is a paucity of rigorous studies to demonstrate their efficacy, outcomes and limitations . It’s hard not to judge in these situations Arend: In the acute hospital, I find good communication with the staff and explaining the An effortful breath hold with the super-supraglottic swallow aims to close the airway before and during the swallow . Following further analyses, the authors concluded that RLA was the most important independent predictor of the time taken to achieve full oral feeding .

Surg Gynecol Obstet. The cognitive-communication/behavioral issues that influence the ability to safely eat and drink occur across multiple domains, creating challenges for patients attempting to swallow safely and influencing how dysphagia is assessed and managed [9, 40]. Instead, the severe illness necessitating the tracheostomy, whether neurological or not, and/or high dose medications  such as sedatives and neuromuscular blocking agents cause dysphagia, not the tracheostomy itself [37, 38, 58]. possibilities as our rehab patients. Or even more than two? Bulow M, Olsson R, Ekberg O. Videomanometric analysis of supraglottic swallow, effortful swallow, and chin tuck in healthy volunteers. going well, they can usually see for themselves, and then they ask what the options I absolutely would document the condition of the patient, and that you brought The supraglottic and super-supraglottic swallows are recommended in patients with reduced airway closure and/or a delayed pharyngeal swallow .

However, the efficacy of these approaches is dependent on the patient having sufficient behavioral control and cognitive-communication skills to attend to, comprehend and recall and sequence commands consistently [8, 9, 40]. Arend: It will depend on how the patient does with milk-based products, just like with anything 2012;27:521–7. Oral health and swallowing problems. However, to be effective the patient must have sufficient behavioral control and cognitive-communication skills to attend to, comprehend and recall and sequence commands consistently [8, 9, 40]. Speech pathologists commonly recommend thickening fluids and/or softening or pureeing food . 2001;20:124–30. Schooling T. Systematic review of oral-motor exercise. Thus, even when a patient with TBI is decannulated, they are highly likely to remain dysphagic and at risk of aspiration. The most frequent post-TBI oropharyngeal motor deficits are thought to be reduced range and/or control of tongue movements [11, 41, 42], in isolation or combined  with deficits such as delayed or absent pharyngeal swallow [6, 11, 32, 41–43]. Krival: Interacting with family and patients is a huge area of discussion in our field, isn’t Ludlow CL, Mullen R, Hasselkus A. Then if they still want to allow textures the patient will aspirate (and I’d have to really look at that on a case-by-case basis. Ekberg O, Hamdy S, Woisard V, Wuttge-Hannig A, Ortega P. Social and psychological burden of dysphagia: its impact on diagnosis and treatment. Swallowing and dysphagia rehabilitation: translating principles of neural plasticity into clinically oriented evidence. These factors help identify patients at risk of dysphagia . This handout is designed for Speech-Language Pathologist working with people who are on relatively long-term NPO status while recovering from other health impairments. In patients where oral feeding is contraindicated due to low responsiveness, sensory stimulation (tactile, olfactory, gustatory, auditory and visual) to has been suggested to improve patient responsivity [8, 9]. Nagoya J Med Sci. Lazarus C, Logemann JA. Lazzara G, Lazarus C, Logemann J. FEESST can also tests laryngopharyngeal sensory function . To this end, small studies are emerging suggesting that strengthening exercises targeting the muscle level of the swallowing function are beginning to show some effect in some populations .

Pharyngeal pressure generation during tongue-hold swallows across age groups. Discussions must address psychosocial issues, such as the probable change in the patient’s role in the family and dependency issues following the TBI . of example, I will sometimes point out that aspiration isn’t really bothering a given First, the pathophysiology of injury is dissimilar: CVA-related damage is usually focal whereas lesions in TBI represent a complex mixture of focal injury combined with diffuse axonal injury (DAI), with or without hypoxic injury. If the ability to swallow is compromised because of a cancer diagnosis or its treatment , it can get better after treatment is finished. Baguley IJ, Nott MT, Howle AA, Simpson GK, Browne S, King AC, et al.  reported four risk factors for dysphagia following severe TBI: lower admitting GCS (3–5), lower admitting RLA (levels I or II), tracheostomy and ventilation >2 weeks. Swallowing problems in adults with traumatic brain injury. Participant: I sometimes feel that I have more difficulty when educating other SLPs than MDs concerning Burkhead LM, Sapienza CM, Rosenbek JC. • Crary MA, Carnaby GD. This is particularly the case post- TBI, as attentional and memory impairments may affect their ability to recall and implement strategies. Patients with delayed initiation of the oral or pharyngeal phase of swallowing may benefit from strategies designed to increase sensory input before or during the swallow . Speech Pathology Australia. Patient may require restraints to leave tube in place.” And really, I talk to the Treatment is patient-specific, with successful dysphagia ther apies implemented in one patient population not necessarily producing the same results in another population . Terk AR, Leder SB, Burrell MI. In a recent online chat, John R. Ashford emphasized the importance of good oral hygiene to the overall health of dysphagia patients and infection control. Given the scarcity of evidence for many traditional forms of dysphagia management, regular monitoring and assessment of therapeutic strategies for individuals is recommended to maximize efficacy and avoid unwanted outcomes. Sharma OP, Oswanski MF, Singer DS, Buckley B, Courtright B, Raj SS, et al. Groher ME, Crary MA. Dysphagia is causally linked with an increased risk of aspiration pneumonia; [13–16] the incidence of which can be as high as 12 % following severe TBI . If there are strategies to help, use them. 2012;93:1173–8. Arend: Assuming you mean in discussions related to swallowing, as we don’t manage the overall J Speech Lang Hear Res. The multifactorial nature of post-TBI dysphagia necessitates a comprehensive assessment of all the potential causal factors [23••]. 1998;13:208–12. Of those patients, 37% will develop pneumonia.

But now we see a decline in health or comfort. The effortful swallow increases oral pressure during swallowing, the amplitude of submental muscle activation , tongue base retraction, duration of pharyngeal pressure, among other changes . Initially, we may have been guessing: you aspirate, you may or may not be able to Logemann JA. DYSPHAGIA GOALS was published by on 2015-08-16. Chest. 1993;8:160. A randomised study of three interventions for aspiration of thin liquids in patients with dementia or Parkinson’s disease. Sdravou K, Walshe M, Dagdilelis L. Effects of carbonated liquids on oropharyngeal swallowing measures in people with neurogenic dysphagia. Sour boluses have been shown to prompt faster initiation of bolus propulsion by the tongue and a faster pharyngeal phase of the swallow [87, 88]. Terre and Mearin  found that dysphagia improved along with better cognitive status on the RLA scale. Conversely, in dysphagia following CVA  the tongue control deficits were less severe and reduced pharyngeal peristalsis was more frequent . Some do great even with the mucus issue. 2007;22(3):184–91. 2003;18:231–41. education. CAS The epidemiology of traumatic brain injury: a review.

Neuromuscular treatments for speech and swallowing: a tutorial. The variable nature of TBI increases the complexity of dysphagia in these patients:  depending on the severity, and neuroanatomical site/s of injury, the resulting dysphagia can range from mild to severe, often necessitating enteral feeding. Dane TEB, King EG. As attentional skills improve, distractors can be gradually re-introduced to the meal-time environment. It is also known as nil per os ( npo or NPO ), a Latin phrase that translates literally to English as "nothing through the mouth". The complications from dysphagia are varied, costly and potentially fatal. Determine area of weakness/deficits 3. Am J Speech Lang Pathol. palliation versus rehabilitation, particularly with the interdisciplinary team. If oral hygiene or dentition issues are observed at the bedside, referral to dental services is required, as excessive colonization of microorganisms in the oral cavity can contribute to respiratory infections . Modification of the bolus temperature, taste or carbonation, applying downward pressure on the tongue when feeding with a spoon, allowing self-feeding (hand to mouth movement may provide additional sensory input), thermal/tactile stimulation (vertically rubbing the faucial arches with a cold laryngeal mirror to increase oral awareness prior to swallowing) and a presenting a bolus that requires chewing are all techniques that can be trialed to assist with bolus detection and improve swallow safety [62, 65]. © 2021 Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Oral food trials may reveal whether they can accept being fed without becoming agitated . 2004;19(3):226–40. However, in some patients with TBI, the cognitive-communication and behavioral impairments, rather than the physiological deficits, may be key to informing the effective management of dysphagia in this population. 1994;37:1041–9. Another study found that tracheostomy removal did not change subjects’ aspiration or dysphagic status . with cervical osteophytes. Functional and physiological outcomes from an exercise-based dysphagia therapy: a pilot investigation of the McNeill Dysphagia Therapy Program.

Krival: I don’t think there is one perfect response, because the staff issue is so broad. 2004;67(1–2):17–23. As a Home Health SLP, I am often asked the same questions. And the second question, if a patient is truly NPO in acute care, my experience is they are really at end of life (or needing a tube feeding). Leder SB, Cohn SM, Moller BA. ideas on limited PO intake, focusing on comfort. This retrospective study examined the predictor variables for oropharyngeal dysphagia in 219 patients following severe traumatic brain injury. Arch Phys Med Rehabil. Dysphagia following TBI can be multifactorial, but mainly occurs because of neurological impairment to any or all of the three phases of swallowing (the oral preparatory, the oral and pharyngeal phases) and cognitive-communication and behavioral dysfunction [5–9]. with the now quick-turnover rate, how do you take that into account and help the NPO Effortful swallowing training combined with electrical stimulation in post-stroke dysphagia: a randomised controlled study.
