The theme for this issue of Perspectives is physiology and interactions with respiration and swallowing. Andrea Vovk and colleagues discuss the concept and organization of a neural central pattern generator for swallowing. Roxann Diez Gross addresses the role of sublottic air pressure in swallowing motor control. Maggie-Lee Huckabee summarizes swallowing respiratory coordination across the lifespan. Cavallazzi, Vasu, and Marik review the definitions, risk factors, and management of aspiration pneumonia versus aspiration pneumonitis. Finally, Karen Dikeman and Marta Kazandjian and colleagues describe challenges for the speech-language pathologist working with patients with medically complex conditions who are dependent on a tracheostomy and/or ventilator. Thank you to all our authors for sharing their time and for the excellent quality of their contributions.
