Aspiration in Older Adults with Dysphagia

Dysphagia, or difficulty in swallowing, can occur as a consequence of aging, or due to physical or cognitive changes. This DVD explains the 4 stages of swallowing, the warning signs of aspiration, and offers care techniques that can be used to reduce the risk of aspiration while hand feeding or tube feeding. The DVD also stresses the importance of good dental hygiene and denture care, body positioning when feeding, and how to select an appropriate risk-reduction intervention. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
