: Videofluoroscopy (VFS) is considered one of the gold-standard assessments of swallowing. Whilst guidelines for the application and conduct of VFS exist, their translation into clinical practice remain challenging. To build a greater understanding on how VFS clinics operate in the UK. A web-based survey was shared with speech and language therapists (SLTs) working in VFS clinics via professional networks and social media from October 2018 to January 2019. 101 responses were received. Two thirds...

Post stroke dysphagia (PSD) is common and associated with poor outcome. The Dysphagia Severity Rating Scale (DSRS), which grades how severe dysphagia is based on fluid and diet modification and supervision requirements for feeding, is used for clinical research but has limited published validation information. Multiple approaches were taken to validate the DSRS, including concurrent- and predictive criterion validity, internal consistency, inter- and intra-rater reliability and sensitivity to ch...

INTRODUCTION: Nurses and other nonspecialists in dysphagia are often trained to screen swallowing poststroke. There are many basic tools that test water only, they are usually conservative, and patients that fail the test remain nil by mouth until a speech and language therapy assessment. More comprehensive tests also allow nonspecialists to recommend modified oral intake. Little is known about the accuracy, clinical utility and cost-effectiveness of these tests. METHODS: Following PRISMA guidel...

Abstract Objective To describe and systematically review the current evidence on the effects of swallow therapy augmented by biofeedback in adults with dysphagia (PROSPERO 2016:CRD42016052942). Data Sources Two independent reviewers conducted searches that included MEDLINE, EMBASE, trial registries, and gray literature up to December 2016. Study Selection Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and non-RCTs were assessed, including for risk of bias and quality. Data Extraction Data were extracted by...

BACKGROUND: Dysphagia (swallowing problems), which is common after stroke, is associated with increased risk of death or dependency, occurrence of pneumonia, poor quality of life, and longer hospital stay. Treatments provided to improve dysphagia are aimed at accelerating recovery of swallowing function and reducing these risks. This is an update of the review first published in 1999 and updated in 2012. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of swallowing therapy on death or dependency among stroke ...

Background and Aims: Aspiration is common in acute stroke survivors with dysphagia, is associated with increased pneumonia rates, and is an independent predictor of mortality. However, studies evaluating the nature and pattern of penetration and aspiration post-stroke are lacking. Method: The Penetration-Aspiration Scale (PAS) was used to rate baseline videofluoroscopic swallowing studies of 17 dysphagic stroke survivors from the STEPS trial of pharyngeal electrical stimulation (onset <14 days, ...
