Disordered Swallowing can be due to:

speed/timing or strength/weaknees

New cards
New cards

etiologies of dysphagia

  1. Neurogenic= CN, Neuro lesions, neuro diseases

New cards
New cards
  1. Structural= something physical, injury, surgery

New cards
New cards
  1. Medical= infection, swelling, pain

New cards
New cards
  1. Deconditioning= too weak all over, older people just degenerate

New cards
New cards
  1. Psychogenic= believes they can't swallow, only can control it in oral phase

New cards
New cards

Penetration

material in laryngeal vestibule, above VF

New cards
New cards

aspiration

material past VF's, in trachea

New cards
New cards

On MBS or FEES do we see the etiology or consequence?

We see the consequence (residue, etc) and need to work backwards to figure out the physiology (reduced HL excursion, etc) and etiology (CN V lesion)

New cards
New cards

sarcopenia

the loss of muscle mass/fatigue that comes with aging

New cards
New cards

*Affects tongue, UES, and sensory changes

New cards
New cards

Aging and Acute Care

*Over 70% of dysphagia referrals were for older patients of 60 years and above

New cards
New cards

*42% over 80 yrs

New cards
New cards

With age:

  1. Bolus transit times increase

New cards
New cards
  1. UES pressure drop is delayed

New cards
New cards
  1. UES pressure minimum increases to a significant positive value

New cards
New cards
  1. Functional swallow but risk factor

New cards
New cards

Oral phase dysphagia symptoms

Longer chewing times, cutting up food, avoiding certain consistencies

New cards
New cards

Oral Phase dysphagia Signs

  1. Drooling

New cards
New cards
  1. Pocketing of food in buccal and labial sulci (oral residue post swallow)

New cards
New cards
  1. Difficulty manipulating and organizing the bolus

New cards
New cards
  1. Difficulty chewing

New cards
New cards
  1. Prolonged oral prep time

New cards
New cards
  1. Loss of control of bolus (anterior or posterior)

New cards
New cards
  1. Prolonged/delayed transit

New cards
New cards

Oral Phase dysphagia neuro reasons

-Motor planning, discoordination, weakness, paralysis, muscle rigidity, muscle spasticity

New cards
New cards

-Etiology: CN lesions: V VII XII; Cortical and subcortical lesions

New cards
New cards

Pharyngeal phase dysphagia signs/symptoms bedside

  1. Gurgly/wet voice quality at baseline

New cards
New cards
  1. Gurgly/wet voice after bolus

New cards
New cards
  1. Coughing after swallow- Immediate or after meal

New cards
New cards
  1. Choking- airway obstruction

New cards
New cards
  1. Multiple swallows per bolus

New cards
New cards
  1. "Something is stuck"

New cards
New cards

What does a gurgly voice mean?

extra liquid on vocal folds

New cards
New cards

-sensation impaired if pt doesn't cough

New cards
New cards

Pharyngeal Phase dysphagia on FEES/MBS

  1. Delayed onset of swallow: Bolus has been pumped into pharynx, hyoid hasn't moved, Vallecular and pyriform "pooling" before swallow trigger, Penetration, Aspiration(Before, during or after swallow)

New cards
New cards
  1. Reduced HL excursion: leads to Penetration; aspiration, limited UES opening

New cards
New cards
  1. Reduced laryngeal airway closure: leads to Penetration/aspiration

New cards
New cards
  1. Poor BOT to PPW contraction: leads to Vallecular residue, No help inverting the epiglottis

New cards
New cards
  1. Reduced pharyngeal stripping wave: leads to Vallecular stasis, Pyriform sinus stasis, Coating of pharyngeal wall

New cards
New cards
  1. Poor UES opening: leading to Pyriform residue, Aspiration off pyriform residue

New cards
New cards

Pharyngeal phase dysphagia etiologies

  1. Hemispheric stroke: Weakness opposite side

New cards
New cards
  1. LMN injuries: disease, trauma, surgery

New cards
New cards
  1. Brainstem injuries

New cards
New cards
  1. Degenerative disease affecting muscles

New cards
New cards
  1. Common in large, multiple diffuse injuries to brain

New cards
New cards

Neurogenic causes of dysphagia

  1. CVA

New cards
New cards
  1. TBI

New cards
New cards
  1. Neoplasm

New cards
New cards
  1. Progressive neurodegenerative disease

New cards
New cards

CVA statistics with dysphagia

**30-65% of patients with CVA have initial dysphagia (Often resolves over 6 months)

New cards
New cards

**7-29% develop PNA (pneumonia) secondary to dysphagia

New cards
New cards

Dysphagia is highly correlated with

dysarthria

New cards
New cards

CVA characteristics

  1. Hemorrhagic versus ischemic

New cards
New cards
  1. Unilateral vs bilateral

New cards
New cards
  1. Cortical and subcortical

New cards
New cards
  1. symptoms worse at acute and then plateaus in recovery

New cards
New cards
  1. undamaged hemi takes over in recovery

New cards
New cards
  1. self feeding issues if damage on dominate side

New cards
New cards
  1. Cognition and perception issues, RCVA= impulsive, visual field, awareness deficits)

New cards
New cards
  1. Contralateral weakness: lower half of face (VII), tongue (XII)

New cards
New cards

CVA common issues

• Reduced lingual control

New cards
New cards

• Slow oral transit

New cards
New cards

• Decreased sensation: Delayed trigger of swallow response

New cards
New cards

• Reduced pharyngeal wall contractions

New cards
New cards

• Increased pharyngeal transit time

New cards
New cards

• Reduced laryngeal sensation

New cards
New cards

• Reduced laryngeal elevation

New cards
New cards

• Vallecular and pyriform stasis

New cards
New cards

• Penetration and aspiration

New cards
New cards

RCVA vs LCVA

RCVA- cognitive and perception issues, probably will not be able to complete compensatory strategies, deficit in awareness,

New cards
New cards

LCVA- cognitively able to complete compensatory strategies

New cards
New cards

The severity of dysphagia correlates with

• dysarthria

New cards
New cards

• aphasia

New cards
New cards

• low FIM score (functional independent measure)

New cards
New cards

• level of cognitive functioning

New cards
New cards

Bedside presentation correlates with

MBS

New cards
New cards

Functional Independence Measure (FIM)

18-item, 7-level scale that assesses severity of disability in performing basic life activities, 1=total assist

New cards
New cards

-lower score=more at risk for dysphagia

New cards
New cards

Brainstem lesions: Pons

-more oral stage stuff

New cards
New cards

-V and VII

New cards
New cards

Brainstem lesions: Medulla

-More pharyngeal phase

New cards
New cards

• VII sensory, CPG

New cards
New cards

• Pharyngeal muscle function asymmetry
