This book is a practical guide that will assist ENT doctors in interpreting swallowing videoendoscopies correctly and in choosing complementary instrumental examinations to consolidate or exclude their provisional diagnosis. In addition, it provides speech-language pathologists with valuable hints on how to treat patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia more efficiently. The book is constructed around videoendoscopic features. The relevance of these features to diagnosis and treatment is carefully described with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. Beyond this, the relationship of videoendoscopy to two further instrumental examinations – videofluorography and pharyngeal manometry– and to the three treatment paths of texture adaptation, rehabilitation, and surgery is explained. The use of pictograms in this context helps to elucidate the connections, creating in the reader’s mind “clusters of behaviors” of benefit in clinical practice. The book also includes a short summary on swallowing anatomy and physiology, a chapter on medications inducing dysphagia, key take-home messages, and suggestions for further reading.

Background: Stroke is the leading cause of disability in adult life. Oropharyngeal dysphagia occurs in 65-90% of cases, and its identification in the acute phase of stroke can prevent complications.Aims: To verify whether oropharyngeal dysphagia during stroke hospitalization is associated with functional capacity assessed by the modified Rankin Scale (mRs) and mortality 90 days after stroke. Methods: A prospective cohort study evaluating 201 patients hospitalized at the Stroke Unit was carried out. Dysphagia was evaluated during hospitalization using a specific protocol to evaluate swallowing biomechanics and the functional oral intake scale (FOIS), in which FOIS 1-3: tube feeding; 4-5: oral feeding requiring food consistency changes; and 6-7: no changes in food consistency. The mRsu22653 at 90 days after discharge was considered disability. The data were adjusted for National Institute of Health Stroke Scale score, sex, age, type of stroke, and thrombolysis. The significance level was 5%.Results: Of the 201 patients evaluated, 42.8% (86) who had dysphagia were older and had a higher severity of stroke. A FOIS score of 6-7 may be a protective factor against disability (mRs

BackgroundDiabetes mellitus is a systemic endocrinal disease that results either from deficiency of insulin hormone (type 1) or from insulin resistance or both (type 2). The pathophysiology of the oropharyngeal dysphagia in diabetics is still not completely clear. However, the autonomic neuropathy associated with long term hyperglycemia is claimed to be the cause. Literature is scared related to dysphagia with diabetes. This complaint is expressed by some patients and needs to be explored.AimThe aim of this work is to screen Egyptian diabetic patients (type 1 and type 2) in El-Demerdash hospital for oropharyngeal dysphagia using the validated Arabic version of Eating Assessment Tool (A-EAT-10) questionnaire in order to explore the degree of such symptom among them.MethodsThis was a cross sectional study conducted to screen the diabetic patients (of both type 1 and type 2) in El-Demerdash hospital for oropharyngeal dysphagia. 200 Egyptian adult diabetic patients, aged 18 u2013 59 years, were included in this study. The present study included 118 patients of type 1 diabetes and 82 patients of type 2 diabetes.The participants were selected from Ain Shams university outpatient clinic. The inclusion and exclusion criteria were determined by the medical history taken from the patients before answering the Arabic version of Eating Assessment Tool (A-EAT-10).ResultsThe increase in mean age of the dysphagic patients (43.63 u00b110.47) years compared with the mean age of the non-dysphagic patients (38.36u00b112.55) years with p= 0.012 and having a female gender (22.6% of the female patients participating in this study complained from dysphagia symptoms compared to only 7.5% of the participating male patients, P= 0.008) were considered of high risk for dysphagia among diabetic patients participating in this study. 23.2% of patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 had dysphagia symptoms compared to 13.6% of patients with diabetes mellitus type 1 who had dysphagia and this difference was statistically of no significance, p=0.578.The commonest symptom among diabetic patients who complained from dysphagia was u201cI cough when I eatu201d.DiscussionDiabetic patients might encounter swallowing problems which could be overlooked by caregivers and should be put in consideration while dealing with diabetic patients. The A-EAT 10 is an easy method that can be used for screening of swallowing difficulty.I have no potential conflict of interest to disclose.

The second edition of this well-received book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date description of the diagnosis and management of dysphagia, including oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal dysfunction. All aspects of dysphagia are covered, with detailed consideration of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. In addition to a variety of benign and malignant disease entities, signs and symptoms, and treatment approaches, many other relevant topics are addressed, including endoscopy, manometry, malnutrition, dehydration, oral care, dementia, ethics, and the social and psychologic impacts of dysphagia. Specific aspects of importance in pediatric and geriatric patients are highlighted. This edition features a number of completely new chapters focusing on, among other subjects, dysphagia in further disease contexts and following laryngectomy and radiation therapy. The authors are without exception world-leading experts in their fields. The book will be of value for practitioners in all specialties involved in the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia. It is therefore a truly multidisciplinary project.

Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a major complaint among many patients suffering from neurological diseases as well as in the elderly. Its severity ranges from moderate difficulty to complete inability to swallow, and it may give rise to clinically relevant complications such as aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition and/or dehydration, impaired quality of life, and death. However, despite its high prevalence and even though it would be very cost-effective to avoid complications by adequate treatment, dysphagia is still severely underdiagnosed. The contributions in this book present and discuss state-of-the-art diagnostic methods, treatment, and care of dysphagia patients, putting special emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach. A variety of clinical specialists will find this publication a most valuable addition to their library, including nurses, speech-language pathologists, dieticians, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and related specialties.

Many nursing home residents with dysphagia are dependent on certified nurse assistants (CNAs) to feed them. It is reported CNAs lack adequate knowledge and training to feed them. Experiment four examined the knowledge and beliefs of 20 CNAs about dysphagia and how to feed nursing home residents using non-participatory structured feeding observation, critique of staged feeding on videotape, interview and Q methodology. Methods triangulation of the knowledge data showed CNAs lack training in dysphagia and how to feed difficult residents. CNA textbooks provide inaccurate, incomplete information on dysphagia. Exploratory investigation of CNA beliefs on how to feed residents using Q methodology showed two groups with differing belief systems. Differences in belief systems may affect feeding practices.
