Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
These Perspectives (SIG 13) articles present clinicians with useful
information to help assess and treat feeding and swallowing disorders in a
variety of patient populations across the lifespan. Daniel Croake and Vrushali
Angadi provide an overview of evidence regarding prophylactic and reactive gastrostomy
tubes in individuals with head and neck cancer, to better facilitate joint
decision-making of percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) tube timing with the patient
and care team. Hema Desai and Audrey Lim extend the discussion to pediatric dysphagia
by summarizing the application of neurobehavioral interventions as part of
feeding treatment for infants with congenital heart defects.
You will be able to:
- describe patient factors that may determine candidacy for reactive percutaneous gastrostomy (PEG) placement
- list two neurobehavioral interventions to improve oral feeding in infants with congenital heart defects (CHD)
