Back to Basics: Typical Swallowing Physiology in Adults

Course Number
1428
Price
39.99
Overview

Presenter:
  Rik Lemoncello, PhD, CCC-SLP
This course will present current best information to help clinicians learn about typical aspects of oropharyngeal and esophageal swallowing in adults and older adults. This course is ideal for clinicians who need a refresher on typical adult swallowing, and is appropriate for SLP, OT, dietary, nursing, and other medical clinicians involved with interprofessional management of dysphagia. Information covered will include review of sensory and motor control of swallowing, timing and neurological control of swallowing, and typical variation in swallowing across the adult lifespan. Discussion will focus around the four classic stages of swallowing (oral preparation, oral transit, pharyngeal transit, and esophageal transit) through structured presentation of sensory, motor, and timing aspects associated with each stage. 

Objective
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:  
  • Describe sensory and motor aspects of the oral preparatory phase of swallowing.
  • Describe sensory and motor aspects of the oral transit phase of swallowing.
  • Describe sensory and motor aspects of the pharyngeal transit phase of swallowing.
  • Describe sensory and motor aspects of the esophageal transit phase of swallowing.
  • Describe typical swallowing changes associated with aging.
