Over the years, the Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) has gained importance and use for clinicians who assess oropharyngeal dysphagia. Many consider FEES to be another gold standard when compared to video fluoroscopy because of its unique and sensitive findings. The best practice is to have both tools so that the one best suited for a particular patient can be utilized. In this course, Dr. Susan Langmore, who developed FEES, will present an overview of the procedure and its salient findings, enhanced by many video clips illustrating swallowing abnormalities. Two speech-language pathology colleagues of Dr. Langmore will share their histories of adding FEES to their practice. This course is aimed at SLPs who are new to clinical practice as well as those SLPs who have used fluoroscopy for years and are now contemplating adding FEES.
