This collection of articles primarily focused on some of the current interventions as they pertain to the vital function of breath-swallow coordination across the age continuum, in four different patient populations. Kevin Coghlan and Dr. Stacey Skoretz discussed the goals, benefits, limitations, and impact of noninvasive high flow oxygen therapy on patients’ swallow function. Dr. Memorie Gosa and Pamela Dodrill extend the review of feeding and noninvasive respiratory support to the neonatal population. Further, authors Alyssa Huff, Alyssa Brown, Dr. Barbara Smith, and Dr. Teresa Pitts explored the mechanisms of impaired cough in the Parkinson’s disease patient population and described the effectiveness of expiratory muscle strength training as an intervention to treat this impairment, as it pertained to swallow function. Lastly, Dr. Bonnie Martin Harris, Dr. Kendrea Garand and Dr. David McFarland presented a thorough review of the application of the respiratory-swallow training program in improving breath-swallow coordination efficiency in patients with oropharyngeal head and neck cancers.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe the current state of the literature regarding high flow oxygenation and the swallow function
  • list the common pulmonary conditions related to prematurity in infants
  • discuss the mechanisms of reduction in cough response effectiveness in patients with Parkinson’s disease
