Once familiar, the intensive care unit (ICU) quickly becomes an intriguing, albeit demanding and fast-paced environment frequently filled the most challenging patients in the hospital. Participants in this course will compare and contrast various hospital ward and ICU patient rooms, and be provided with a broad overview of the impact and consequences of critical care on patients. Dr. Brodsky provides suggestions that will make for more efficient patient contact time and methods for improved communication with medical personnel will also be provided.

The Consequences of Critical Care on Swallowing

Presented by Martin B. Brodsky, PhD, ScM, CCC-SLP

The Consequences of Critical Care on Swallowing

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Would you believe that, after life sustaining treatments and comfort considerations, swallowing is priority #1 among patients who are critically ill? You'd better! Patients surviving critical care with dysphagia may be a challenge for even the most experienced clinicians, especially when considering the presence and dynamics of various medical therapies and medication effects, intubation with mechanical ventilation, and cognitive, mental, and other physical impairments. Timely and meaningful assessments lead to the creation of a comprehensive care plan. Evidence-based treatments for dysphagia that are provided by a well-integrated, multi-disciplinary, goal-directed, and efficient team will provide the most favorable of patient outcomes.
