This issue of Perspectives focuses on spinal cord injury and respiratory complications and the interaction with dysphagia. Dr. Teresa Pitts begins the issue with a discussion of the anatomy and physiology of cough. Julie Huffman updates readers on esophageal dysphagia after spinal cord injury and roles of the SLP with this group. Rebecca Gould and Elizabeth Reeves discuss dysphagia following cervical fusion surgery and the roles of the SLP. Next, Dr. Lori Burkhead reviews contemporary approaches for the SLP working with individuals with dysphagia and ventilator dependency. In our Food for Thought article, Lynn Brady-Wagner provides a thoughtful case study format to explore patient autonomy and choice about life sustaining treatment after spinal cord injury.
