Perspectives, SIG 13, Vol. 3, Part 3, 2018

Authors Carmin Bartow, Nina Collins, Eugene Kopp, and Oscar Guillamondegui discuss the goals, development, and benefits of a multidisciplinary tracheostomy team in the acute care setting, while highlighting the role of the speech-language pathologist as an integral member of this team. Next, authors Arwen Jackson, Shaunda Harendt and Christopher Baker provide a review of existing evidence and propose a model of collaborative decision-making to guide clinicians managing swallowing disorders in children with tracheostomies. Further, authors Allison Holman, Gemma Clunie, Justin Roe, and Tessa Goldsmith describe the nature of laryngotracheal stenosis in adults as well as the diagnosis and management options for dysphagia in this population following surgery. Lastly, authors Steven Leder and Heather Warner investigate if clinicians are using evidence from the literature to guide clinical bedside swallow examinations (CSE) by comparing ratings of the exact same swallows from simultaneously recorded CSE and fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing assessments.
