  • Registered nurses' knowledge and care practices regarding patients with dysphagia in Saudi Arabia. [Journal Article]
  • IJInt J Health Care Qual Assur 2018 Oct 08; 31(8):896-909
  • Khoja MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: As the medical professionals who have the most contact with the patients, nurses have a central role in the care of patients with dysphagia. This study provides information that will guide strategies for in-service nurse education dysphagia programmes.The estimated Saudi prevalence of dysphagia is high due to increased incidence of medical conditions commonly associated with dysphagia, such as stroke, cerebral palsy and traumatic brain injuries from traffic accidents. Nurses play a pivotal role in caring for these patients. However, little is known about the level of care patients with dysphagia require in Saudi hospital settings.
  • Sapienza GLObal Bedside Evaluation of Swallowing after Stroke The GLOBE-3S study. [Journal Article]
  • EJEur J Neurol 2018 Nov 10
  • Toscano M, Viganò A, … Di Piero V
  • CONCLUSIONS: GLOBE-3S is quick to perform at bedside and can accurately identify aspiration in acute stroke patients. By including the measurement of laryngeal elevation and the monitoring of oxygen desaturation, it could represent a highly sensitive instrument to avoid the misdiagnosis of silent aspirators.

  • Dysphagia in cerebral hypoxia. [Journal Article]
  • NNeuroRehabilitation 2018 Nov 08
  • Ruecker M, Zepharovich K, … Saltuari L
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dysphagia is common in patients with cerebral hypoxia, mainly resulting in a delayed oral phase consistent with impaired volitional execution of swallowing. Additional lesions in the brainstem may affect the integrity of the central pattern-generating circuitry for swallowing, resulting in additional dysfunction of the non-volitional reflexive component. In conclusion, dysphagia in patients with cerebral hypoxia is a common complication particularly in the early stages of remission, while long-term prognosis with respect to swallowing is often good. Swallowing function should be closely monitored in patients with acquired brain injury.
