PURPOSE: Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) can cause asymptomatic infection of the lungs as well as clinically significant lung disease. NTM is often associated with destructive changes of the airways that can lead to impairment of quality of life. It is unknown whether impaired swallowing contributes to the pathophysiology of NTM. Micro-aspiration occurs in normal individuals and its prevalence is higher in lung diseases such as COPD, asthma, obstructive sleep apnea, and lung infections due to typical and atypical microorganisms (such as non-tuberculous mycobacteria). It is possible that patients with NTM may exhibit decreased airway protection causing risk for micro-aspiration during thin liquid swallows. The objective of this study was to determine airway protection in 3 and 5ml thin liquid swallows in patients with newly diagnosed NTM
