The relationship of reflux to dysphagia, breathing abnormalities, and vocal dysfunction are perplexing and complex. This course helps healthcare professionals gain a keen working knowledge of this relationship, along with its diagnostic and therapeutic implications.
The course takes the professional out of the realm of traditional dysphagia therapy and into the realm of therapeutic management of the esophagus, oral cavity, nasal sinus region, larynx, and respiratory function. Healthcare professionals will walk away with therapy goals, strategies, and techniques to deal with all aspects of this triad region. Patients in their care will benefit from this interdisciplinary approach, as the professionals breadth of vision will protect patients in a more holistic manner rather than tunnel vision traditional swallowing therapy only.
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a study on dysphagia and reflux disease.
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
• Identify the triad relationship resulting from Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Disease (LPR)
• List the trigger system of normal upper digestion
• Define chemical pneumonia.
• Identify the therapy strategy of coughing and throat clearing cessation.
