Assessment of Swallowing


Bedside Assessment of Swallowing:
A Useful Screening Tool for Dysphagia in an Acute Geriatric Ward
Y Y Sitoh. A Lee, S Y Phua, P K Lieu, S P Chan. Singapore Med J 2000: 41 (8): 376-381

Conclusion: "A simple bedside swallowing test can be used as an effective screening tool in detecting hitherto undiagnosed dysphagia. The validity of this tool in the diagnosis of aspiration requires further investigation."
