SIG 13 Perspectives on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia), October 2007, Vol. 16, 1. doi:10.1044/sasd16.3.1
The theme for this issue of Perspectives is Dysphagia in Specific Patient Populations. Giselle Carnaby-Mann and colleagues discuss dysphagia in patients with thermal burn injury; Lisa Newman and her colleagues provide information on dysphagia in patients with blast injury; and John Riski reviews literature pertaining to feeding and swallowing difficulties in children with cleft lip and/or palate.
Jeri Logemann then provides an interesting discussion on evaluating the usefulness of dysphagia treatment techniques.
Finally, Nancy Colodny reviews issues related to patient and caregiver compliance with recommendations for swallowing. In addition, she discusses the complex psychological, social, self-image, and independence adjustment associated with the grieving process that patients with dysphagia may experience.
