Description

Dysphgia, or difficulty in swallowing, can occur as a consequence of aging, or due to physical or cognitive changes. This informative program explains the four stages of swallowing, the warning signs of aspiration, and offers care techniques that can be used to reduce the risk of aspiration while hand feeding or tube feeding. We also stress the importance of good dental hygiene and denture care, body positioning when feeding, and how to select an appropriate risk-reduction intervention. This program is an excellent resource for all healthcare professionals managing the health requirements of elderly patients.
