OBJECTIVE : To determine the effect of bolus volume on pharyngeal swallowing using high-resolution manometry (HRM). STUDY DESIGN : Repeated measures with subjects serving as own controls. METHODS : Twelve subjects swallowed four bolus volumes in the neutral head position: saliva; 5 mL water; 10 mL water; and 20 mL water. Pressure measurements were taken along the length of the pharynx using a high-resolution manometer, with emphasis placed on the velopharynx, tongue base, and upper… CONTINUE READING
