SESSION TITLE: Airways 4

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Recent reports have suggested an impairment in swallowing function and higher risk of aspiration in COPD patients. The Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) is one of the preferred methods that is currently used at the bedside to study the process of swallowing in hospitalized patients which provides static and dynamic evaluation of the structures involved during the swallowing process. We aimed to evaluate dysphagia and risk of aspiration in COPD in a consecutive cohort of patients who underwent swallowing evaluation performed by speech language pathologist.
