Dysphagia: A Comparison of Treatment Effectiveness

  title={Dysphagia: A Comparison of Treatment Effectiveness},
  author={Larenda J Henshaw},
Effectiveness of swallow maneuvers, thermal stimulation and combination both in treatment of patients with dysphagia using functional outcome swallowing scale
Combining thermal stimulation and swallow maneuvers are significantly more fruitful for the treatment of dysphagia than either thermal stimulation or swallowing maneuvers.


Comparing Treatment Intensities of Tactile-Thermal Application
It is suggested that subsequent studies with larger groups include intensities between 300 and 550, and no single intensity emerged as the most therapeutic.
The management of dysphagia after stroke
Abstract This article provides an overview of the management of dysphagia (a swallowing disorder) after stroke. It includes an examination of the normal swallow, what can go wrong with the swallow
Effects of thermal application on dysphagia after stroke.
This study failed to reveal strong evidence that 2 weeks of thermal application alternating with two weeks of no thermal application improves dysphagia following multiple strokes.
Advances in the evaluation and management of pediatric dysphagia
Research that contributes to the base of knowledge regarding diagnosis and treatment of pediatric dysphagia has been consistently accumulating in recent years, yet much work remains to be done.
Electrical stimulation for swallowing disorders caused by stroke.
ES appears to be a safe and effective treatment for dysphagia due to stroke and results in better swallow function than conventional TS treatment.
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) in Stroke Patients with Oral and Pharyngeal Dysfunction
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) technique is a dual-channel electrotherapy system designed specifically for the treatment of pharyngeal dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to
Adjunctive Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation for Treatment-Refractory Dysphagia
A systematic therapy for chronic pharyngeal dysphagia using adjunctive NMES produced improvement in clinical swallowing ability and functional oral intake without significant weight loss or complications.
Neuromuscular electrical and thermal-tactile stimulation for dysphagia caused by stroke: a randomized controlled trial.
The results suggest that neuromuscular electrical stimulation combined with thermal-Tactile stimulation is a better treatment for patients with swallowing disorders after stroke than thermal-tactiles stimulation alone.
The effects of neuromuscular electrical stimulation for dysphagia in opercular syndrome: a case study
A 76-year-old man with opercular syndrome characterized by complete bilateral loss of voluntary control of facial, lingual, pharyngeal and masticatory muscles is presented with focus on the severe
Thermal oral-pharyngeal stimulation and elicitation of swallowing.
The concept that swallowing is significantly facilitated by cold applied to the oral-pharyngeal mucosa was thus not supported and the importance of these findings is discussed.
