This collection of articles primarily focused on the evidence-based use of screening techniques to identify swallowing disorders in patients with a variety of medical diagnoses. Kara Maharay and Kelly Salmon reviewed specific dysphagia screening tools for the neurologic population and provided readers with tips for implementing a screening protocol for patients with acute stroke, with a focus on multidisciplinary collaboration. Next, Joy Gaziano and Stephanie Watts provided an overview of the utility of screening for esophageal impairments during videofluoroscopic swallow studies. Mario Alberto Landera, Donna S. Lundy, and Amanda Demane extended the discussion by describing key considerations for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) managing dysphagia in patients with head and neck cancers and the importance of SLP participation in the multidisciplinary head and neck tumor board. Finally, Debra Suiter provided clinicians with an overview of some of the challenges and controversies associated with current dysphagia screening tools.

Authors Jessica Zarzour, Loretta Johnson, and Cheri Canon discussed strategies to employ to minimize clinician and patient exposure to radiation during a fluoroscopic evaluation of the swallow. In the second article, authors Tsega Temtem and Mark Corkins educated the audience on the development and function of the gastrointestinal tract and the mechanism of digestion of foods into nutrients and waste. Next, author Adele Evans presented an extraordinary perspective of the laryngeal system focusing on the differences between the infant and adult laryngeal anatomy and its subsequent impact on laryngeal function. The application of the popular Ice Chip Protocol and the concept of safe aspiration are discussed by authors Susan Langmore and Jessica Pisegna.

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.

The first three articles of this Perspectives focused on skills involved in formulating and documenting the execution of a dysphagia plan of care. These topics will not only serve as a best practice update to practicing speech-language pathologists (SLPs), but will also be of significant value to students learning dysphagia best practice. Patrick Henley leads the discussion on the SLPs skills in utilizing both behavioral and physiological frameworks in the formulation and documentation of a dysphagia plan of care. Nancy Swigert elaborated on the professionalism and skill that clinicians must practice when documenting their sessions with patients so that their notes can provide justice to the excellent, high-quality of care that they strive to provide to their patients. Advocating for, addressing, and treating feeding and swallowing disorders in a school setting can be supported significantly by the approach clinicians take to document services provided. Emily Homer and Christine Faust described this viewpoint in the second article. Finally, Carly Barbon, Dr. Andrew Hope, and Dr. Catriona Steele kept us abreast of the most updated synopsis on the utilization of radiation therapy and its characteristics as it relates to the treatment of head and neck cancers and guided clinicians on how to best utilize this knowledge and understanding in managing dysphagia, specific to each patient.

The articles focused on the published literature that discussed the current state of understanding of the impact of swallowing exercises in the following patient populations: post-stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, and head and neck cancers. Further, the evidence on the impact of swallowing therapy in the pediatric patient population is detailed as well. The first article, by Gary McCullough, explored the literature as it pertains to physiological impairments in swallowing disorders resulting from strokes. In the second article, Michelle Troche and Avinash Mishra discussed the literature’s findings as they relate to strength-based and skill-based dysphagia treatment and treatment strategies in patients with neurodegenerative diseases. The modern management of dysphagia in the head and neck cancer patient population is elaborated in the third article, written by Heather Starmer. In the fourth article, Memorie Gosa and Pamela Dodrill presented the process of effective diagnosis and management of oral-pharyngeal dysphagia in children. Lastly, Lori Morgan Burkhead comprehensively highlighted recent work in dysphagia rehabilitation utilizing the basic principles of exercise therapy as they relate to the interpretation of the content in the aforementioned four articles.

Cathy Lazarus, on the other hand, elaborated on the cumulative impact of normal age related changes in the swallow mechanism on dysphagia associated with cancer treatments in the elderly population. Pippa Hales and Corine Mossey-Gaston discussed the anatomical and physiological impact of lung surgery on swallowing biomechanics and provided the clinician with treatment and referral considerations. Further, Lisa Evangelista and James Coyle reviewed in-depth the clinical aspects of esophagectomy in the management of esophageal cancers and facilitate understanding of the typical expectations post- surgery. Lastly, practicing clinicians will relate to Andrea Croom’s detailed presentation of the association of different personality-types and patients’ abilities to adhere to multidisciplinary cancer treatment.
