Course Description:
What’s the safest diet? Is he aspirating? Can she swallow these pills? He hates the pureed food – what else can we do? She’s refusing the thick liquids! Is he going to get pneumonia? Does he need a feeding tube?

These are issues that we face every day in our work with children and adults with dysphagia. How do we keep our clients safe, while making sure they’re well hydrated and well nourished, and normalize eating as much as possible?

Sometimes, it’s about more than just swallowing.

This course will examine the inter-relationships between respiration, gastro-intestinal function, and swallowing to allow clinicians to better identify the underlying causes of their client’s swallowing difficulties. We’ll look at specific respiratory and GI diagnoses and their impact on what, when, how much, and how safely our clients eat. Using clinical case studies, we’ll examine the evidence to provide you with the tools you need to perform a thorough assessment and implement a comprehensive treatment plan that takes into account all of the potential contributing factors.

• Use your understanding of the interrelationships between the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems to identify and treat the causes and not just the symptoms of dysphagia in your pediatric and adult clients.
• Evaluate the impact of respiratory and gastrointestinal functions on swallowing systems in order to choose targeted interventions and increase your effectiveness in reducing aspiration risk.
• Design effective treatment plans for clients with respiratory and GI disease processes including COPD, Respiratory failure and GERD.
• Expand your diagnostic tool box to include cough testing, water screenings, pulse oximetry, respiratory muscle strength testing and other evidence based tools.
• Ensure the success of your treatment plans by identifying reflux disease and its impact on swallowing function in your clients.
• Design assessment strategies that allow you to identify those clients who are more likely or less likely to get sick as a result of aspiration.
