In the July issue of the newsletter, we introduced the case of Mr. I. Mr. I is a 73-year-old gentleman, status post the onset of a myocardial infarction, who was orally intubated and mechanically ventilated for 2 weeks following the event. During this time, he received nutrition and hydration via a N-G tube.
He was transferred to a rehabilitation hospital on the cardiology service, admitted on a regular diet and thin liquids, but was noted to be coughing when eating and drinking. The patient had a breathy vocal quality and vocal cord dysfunction was suspected. ENT evaluation confirmed bilateral vocal fold paralysis.
