Title: A review of the multiple treatment approaches for oropharyngeal dysphagia and the effectiveness of intervention
Author: Prather, Keith Williams
Abstract: This master’s report collected the available literature regarding the multiple treatment approaches for oropharyngeal dysphagia and the efficacy of each approach in the remediation of swallowing deficits. A variety of traditional intervention techniques are described and their efficacy data is presented, as well as limitations and contraindications to intervention. Efficacy data for modern oropharyngeal dysphagia intervention techniques such as Vitalstim and E-stim is also presented, and the differences between the two techniques are discussed. Ethical decision-making in dysphagia treatment is also discussed.
