Swallowing Studies for Dysphagia

Dysphagia is a disorder of swallowing that occurs at any point during the swallowing process - taking food or liquid into the mouth, moving it to the throat, or moving it down the throat to the esophagus and the stomach. The major complications that arise from dysphagia are inadequate nutrition and/or hydration as well as aspiration. Aspiration occurs when food or liquids enter the passages to the lungs rather than those leading to the stomach.
