During this part of the examination, the patient performs several swallows of thick barium while videofluoroscopy is done in the anteroposterior (AP) projection. An important part of the modified barium swallow exam is the assessment of rehabilitation strategies.
BACKGROUND: Upper respiratory infections (URIs) are associated with airway adverse events (AAEs) during general anesthesia. There have been no large studies examining the relationship between URIs and AAEs during pediatric procedural sedation. We hypothesized that there would be a relationship
thick mucus secreted by the membranes that line the respiratory tract pleura thin, moist, and slippery membrane that covers the outer surface of the lungs and lines the inner surface of the rib cage.
Thick saliva in throat – or mucus – is a viscous, acidic, and semi-opaque secretion, instead of the clear and watery one. Changes can be due to large quantities of organic matter in the saliva
If the patient has current upper respiratory infections and has pharyngeal dysphagia, we as SLP’s must make sure the balance of hydration and safety are completed. The only way to be 100% positive the patient has pharyngeal dysphagia and is possibly penetrating or aspirating is with visual confirmation (instrumentation assessment).
When ren do not swallow frequently enough or at all, they may aspirate secretions from the mouth into their upper or lower airways, which can cause choking, coughing, vomiting, and in some ren, serious respiratory complications including pneumonia.
