National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders - A community for those suffering from dysphagia and swallowing related illnesses

You look up the information on your first patient; 55 year-old male with base of tongue cancer experiencing difficulty swallowing 4 weeks into his radiation treatment. You review his swallow study results and consider the best plans for swallowing treatment. Your pager beeps. Hands sweating, you walk to the waiting room to call the patient back. Confidently, you introduce yourself and ask the patient to share the reason for this visit. A wave of relief hits as the patient pulls a cell phone from his shirt pocket, giving you time to unclench every muscle in your body and decide how to introduce the treatment plan. After two minutes (which feels like twenty), the patient hangs up, sets his phone to “vibrate only” mode, briefly apologizes, and we get on with the session. Speech news right to you! If you do anything long enough, it stands to reason that you may experience burn out.

Speech news right to you!

After 20 plus years in skilled nursing facilities, I have times when I feel like I’m at my wits end. A couple of months ago, I had had one of those weeks.

Dysphagia Care for Individuals with Dementia

CASLPO, SLP (c); Ph.D. Candidate Introduction Dementia is a syndrome caused by a number of progressive disorders that affect memory, thinking, behavior, and the ability to perform activities of daily living (World Alzheimer Report, 2010). Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias currently affect more than 5 million Americans (Fargo and Bleiler 2014) and 747 thousand Canadians (Alzheimer Society of Canada, 2012), and the incidence is expected to exceed 7.1 million by 2025 (Fargo and Bleiler 2014). Individuals with mild dementia may experience early taste (Murphy 1999), smell (Nordin, Murphy et al. 1996), and swallowing dysfunction (Humbert, McLaren et al. 2010), which may result in decreased oral intake and weight loss.

MBSImP™©: Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile. The Modified Barium Swallow Study, while a clinically useful tool, remains a subjective test.

MBSImP™©: Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile

Evidence, rather than opinion, should guide clinical decision-making. The Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile, or MBSImP, is an evidence-based, standardization of the MBS study in adults. The MBSImP assesses 17 critical components of swallowing and provides an objective profile of the physiologic impairment affecting adult swallowing function. For the first time, the MBSImP provides the means for clinicians to communicate MBS study results in a standardized, evidence-based manner that is consistent, specific, and accurate.

Consistency Guide

Both of these are swallowed differently. A healthcare professional will be able to help decide what consistency is most suitable for you. This Consistency Guide gives more information about the products your healthcare professional recommends. The consistencies below are within The National Dysphagia Diet guidelines, published by the American Dietetic Association1. Liquid consistencies.

By Karen Sheffler, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S A summary of a talk titled: “Managing Dysphagia in Aging Adults,” at the 2014 ASHA Healthcare & Business Institute by. My “name mnemonic” used for the Clinical Bedside Swallow Evaluation - Gray Matter Therapy. Today, Gray Matter Therapy is fortunate to have a guest post from Eric Blicker, CCC-SLP D. The clinical bedside swallow evaluation (CBSE) is a common procedure conducted in hospital and skilled nursing facility settings. As speech language pathologists (SLP), we are required to assist in making critical recommendations for patient care. The role of the SLP in the CBSE crosses over many components of patient care: respiratory, nutrition, digestion, hydration, phonation, and more. The SLP is also an educator as part of CBSE to patient, staff, and patient’s family.

It can seem overwhelming at times, to ensure that all of the components of the CBSE have been covered as the SLP is required to multi-task to capture the full clinical picture.

Lateral Medullary Syndrome (LMS) – Wallenberg Syndrome literature review. I want to share my literature review I did for fun when my son had just started at preschool, and I had a little more time on my hands! The inspiration was not only from my patients with LMS, but also from hearing James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S speak at an ASHA convention.

He was advocating for clinicians/dysphagia practitioners to do research. I then presented the information in a 2-hour lecture at the ASHA convention in San Diego in 2011. The literature review (LMS – Wallenberg Syndrome literature review and case studies) is extensive, at over 60 pages double spaced, but such a fascinating topic! I will add to this in the future as I’m sure there have been recent publications since I completed the writing several years ago. Swallowing (deglutition) from Anatomy & Physiology Online.

Chin Tuck Against Resistance (CTAR): New Method for Enhancing Suprahyoid Muscle Activity Using a Shaker-Type Exercise. Dysphagia (2014) 29: 243-248.I was beyond excited to pick up my newest edition of the Dysphagia journal.

I've never said I wasn't a nerd. There was an article in the journal about chin tuck against resistance. I've always used what I call Modified Shaker exercises. Look at patients with dysphagia from Pharyngoesophageal Segment (PES) dysfunction, we look at strengthening the suprahyoid muscles. CTAR vs Shaker: Both have a component of isometric versus isokinetic. The isokinetic portion is 30 repetitions of up and down head movement 3 times.

This study used 40 healthy individuals (20 male, 20 female) 21-39 years of age. What the researchers found: CTAR: The Chin Tuck Against Resistance was less strenuous than the traditional Shaker, with increased sEMG values during isometric and isokinetic movement.
