Assessment and Treatment Approaches for Dysphagia Management Across the Lifespan (WEBS1321323)

Course Description

These Perspectives (SIG 13) articles present clinicians with useful information to help assess and treat feeding and swallowing disorders in a variety of patient populations across the lifespan. Daniel Croake and Vrushali Angadi provide an overview of evidence regarding prophylactic and reactive gastrostomy tubes in individuals with head and neck cancer, to better facilitate joint decision-making of percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) tube timing with the patient and care team. Hema Desai and Audrey Lim extend the discussion to pediatric dysphagia by summarizing the application of neurobehavioral interventions as part of feeding treatment for infants with congenital heart defects.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe patient factors that may determine candidacy for reactive percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) placement
  • list two neurobehavioral interventions to improve oral feeding in infants with congenital heart defects (CHD)
