Received March 16, 2018 Accepted for publication March 17, 2018 Dysphagia occurs in 15 to 23% of older persons living in the community (1-4). It is prevalent in hospitalized patients, reaching nearly 50% and up to 90% of hospitalized patients with Community Acquired Pneumonia (4, 5). A study from 19 countries found that dysphagia was present in 13.4% of nursing home residents (6). Patients with dementia and dysphagia are more likely to aspirate than nondemented patients (7). Patients with… Expand
Oropharyngeal dysphagia in elderly population suffering from mild cognitive impairment and mild dementia: Understanding the link.
TLDR
While patients understate their swallowing problems, the caregivers are not competent enough to manage this situation in a great percentage of cases, the study underscores the fact that oropharyngeal dysphagia is present in many cases of mild cognitive decline. Expand
Risk factors for aspiration pneumonia in geriatric patients with dementia and prolonged dysphagia
TLDR
The predictive risk factors for the development of aspiration pneumonia in dementia patients with dysphagia were malnutrition, comorbidities, severe dementia, and severe aspiration scale and tube feeding. Expand
Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Study Findings Associated With Subsequent Pneumonia in Patients With Dysphagia Due to Frailty
TLDR
The study findings might assist clinicians in making clinical decisions based on the VFSS findings in this population of patients, and the functional dysphagia scale (FDS) scores of the patients who developed subsequent pneumonia were higher than those of the Patients who did not develop subsequent pneumonia. Expand
Association Between Dysphagia and Inpatient Outcomes Across Frailty Level Among Patients ≥ 50 Years of Age
TLDR
Dysphagia was associated with greater LOS, higher total costs, increased non-routine discharges, and more medical complications among both frail and non-frail patients using the three frailty definitions. Expand
The Contribution of Temporal Flat Lateral Position on the Mortality and Discharge Rates of Older Patients with Severe Dysphagia
TLDR
TFLP can improve the discharge and mortality rates in community hospitals, thereby improving patient outcomes and Clinicians should focus on practical education and the implementation of TFLP in communities in order to promote it. Expand
Is the modified Mann Assessment of Swallowing Ability useful for assessing dysphagia in patients with mild to moderate dementia?
TLDR
It is suggested that the modified Mann Assessment of Swallowing Ability (mMASA) would be useful for the routine evaluation of swallowing function in patients with mild to moderate dementia for the detection of dysphagia. Expand
Self Reported Dysphagia is not Associated with Sarcopenia Defined by the Revised EWGSOP2 Criteria and Regional Thresholds at the Hospital Among Ambulatory Older Patients
TLDR
Dysphagia was not associated with sarcopenia defined by the EWGSOP2 criteria in ambulatory hospitalized patients over 60 years of age and further studies using revised criteria, different adjustments and thresholds are needed to reveal possible differences. Expand
High prevalence of malnutrition and frailty among older adults at admission to residential aged care.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence for high prevalence of malnutrition and frailty at admission to residential aged care is provided and Findings highlight the need for strategies to prevent, detect and treat malnutrition in community health care and support nutrition screening at admission of older adults at early admission to Residential aged care. Expand
Interrupting the trajectory of frailty in dementia with Lewy bodies with anabolic exercise, dietary intervention and deprescribing of hazardous medications
TLDR
The need to aggressively identify and robustly treat reversible contributors to frailty, irrespective of advanced age, progressive ‘untreatable’ neurodegenerative disease and rapidly deteriorating health in such individuals is highlighted. Expand
Malnutrition Screening and Assessment in Hospitalised Older People: A Review
TLDR
The validity and reliability of Nutritional Screening Tools (NSTs) for older adults in the hospital setting are compared and the various nutritional screening and assessment tools used to identify malnutrition in hospitalised older adults are provided. Expand

Evidence based practices in caring for those individuals with dementia and dysphagia with guidelines for evaluation and management are described. Expand
Evaluation and management of oropharyngeal dysphagia in different types of dementia: a systematic review.
TLDR
A systematic review of the literature is done to determine the patterns of swallowing deficits in different types of dementia and to look at the usefulness of different diagnostic and management strategies. Expand
Pathophysiology, relevance and natural history of oropharyngeal dysphagia among older people.
TLDR
It is recommended that OD should be recognized as a major geriatric syndrome, and a policy of systematic and universal screening and assessment of OD among older people to prevent its severe complications is recommended. Expand
Dysphagia in patients with frontotemporal lobar dementia.
TLDR
When assessed via instrumentation, swallowing abnormalities are found in many patients with frontotemporal lobar dementia and the appearance of dysphagia signals progression of FTLD to brainstem systems. Expand
Dysphagia in Dementia: Influence of Dementia Severity and Food Texture on the Prevalence of Aspiration and Latency to Swallow in Hospitalized Geriatric Patients.
TLDR
The relationships observed in this study encourage screening for dysphagia and adapting meal consistencies to prevent aspiration in patients with dementia, especially in Patients with moderate to severe cognitive impairment. Expand
Understanding Dysphagia in Dementia: The Present and the Future
TLDR
A new focus on development of treatment regimens, possibly involving taste and smell receptor stimulation and rehabilitative exercise that may be implemented during the prodromal stages of dementia, is necessary to prevent or delay further swallowing decline. Expand
Dysphagia in the elderly: management and nutritional considerations
TLDR
Data describing age related changes in swallowing is reviewed and the relationship of dysphagia in patients following stroke, those with dementia, and in community dwelling elderly is discussed, including both compensatory and rehabilitative approaches. Expand
Eating Difficulties in Patients With Probable Dementia of the Alzheimer Type
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that eating difficulties occur in a majority of institutionalized DAT patients, but can be managed without resorting to tube feeding. Expand
Oropharyngeal dysphagia in older persons – from pathophysiology to adequate intervention: a review and summary of an international expert meeting
TLDR
Physicians in charge of older patients should be aware that malnutrition, dehydration, and pneumonia are frequently caused by (unrecognized) dysphagia, and the diagnosis is particularly difficult in the case of silent aspiration. Expand
Dysphagia in Lewy body dementia - a clinical observational study of swallowing function by videofluoroscopic examination
