Prediction of Functional Health Status and Aspiration Using Multiple Dysphagia Scales Over 6 Months After Acute Stroke

To determine the dysphagia scale with significant predictions of aspiration and functional health status in patients with acute stroke, video-fluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS) will be performed to the patients who will be referred for VFSS among stroke patients who would be diagnosed by Brain MRI / CT. When any type ...

IDDSI Nutritional Drink for Dysphagia Study

Dysphagia is a complex condition common in a number of diagnoses including stroke, Parkinson's disease, head and neck cancer, dementia, learning disabilities and gastric/oesophageal motility disorders. A modified textured diet and/or fluid is considered as an effective intervention in management of dysphagia. The International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) have ...

PES to Avoid Extubation Failure in Intubated Stroke Patients at High Risk of Severe Dysphagia

Endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation are common procedures for critically ill stroke patients. Although necessary and life-saving, timely extubation after ventilator weaning is desirable, because patients with delayed extubation experience higher pneumonia rate, increased need for tracheostomy, longer length of stay on the intensive care unit and higher mortality. On ...

Using Plain Water With Oral Care to Increase Hydration for Long Term Care Residents With Disordered Swallowing

The investigators will recruit a convenience sample of 36 participants from a single long-term care facility. Participants will be randomly assigned into control or intervention groups. Both groups will be assessed at study onset for swallowing and oral health and continue with agreed upon diet texture and fluid modifications. The ...

Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation for the Treatment of Dysphagia After Extubation

The PhINEST study is designed to assess the effects of Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES) (using Phagenyx) for treatment of oropharyngeal dysphagia after invasive mechanical ventilation (of any duration) by means of naso or oro-tracheal tube in critically ill intensive care unit (ICU) patients. The main clinical outcomes assessing unsafe swallows ...
