PURPOSE Assessment of swallowing dysfunction, particularly the risk of aspiration, is extremely important to clinicians because it provides crucial information for preventing morbidity and mortality from dysphagia. The purpose of this study was to describe a magneto-impedance sensor-aided screening system (MISS) for assessing swallowing function and clarify its effectiveness with the repetitive saliva-swallowing test (RSST). METHODS An MI sensor attached to the skin over the sternum detected… CONTINUE READING
