COVID-19 and Dysphagia: What We Need to Know
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Feb 2, 2021 at 3:00 pm EST
Course: #9575Level: Intermediate1 Hour
COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus that can result in many respiratory, otolaryngological, and neurological symptoms, including dysphagia. This course explores causal mechanisms of swallow dysfunction in patients with COVID-19 and discusses critical information about assessment and treatment of these vulnerable patients, such as the need to assess respiration during the clinical swallow evaluation.

Post-Extubation Dysphagia: Critical Information for Critical Patients
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudio
Course: #9573Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Intubation provides access to mechanical ventilation for critically ill patients, but what happens when the patient is extubated? This course provides information about risk factors for and causes and consequences of post-extubation dysphagia, and discusses options for assessment and management of these critically ill patients.

Course: #9554Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. SLPs involved in the care of infants with feeding and swallowing difficulties provide assessment and treatment to promote safe, positive feeding experiences. This course will provide an overview of feeding and swallowing problems that can occur in infants, including a discussion of risk factors and underlying etiologies. A review of the research related to best practices in assessment and treatment of these infants will be presented.

Anatomy & Physiology of the Upper Aerodigestive Tract: Breathing and Swallowing in Adults
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Mar 9, 2021 at 3:00 pm EST
Course: #9621Level: Advanced2 Hours
To effectively manage dysphagia in adults requires thorough knowledge of the anatomy and neurophysiology of swallowing and respiration and the coordination of these functions. Shared structures and neurophysiology of the aerodigestive tract are discussed as well as diseases of the respiratory system that can impact swallowing. Examples of applying this information to the evaluation and treatment of dysphagia are provided.

Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study Metrics Across the Lifespan, presented in partnership with Thieme Publishers
Presented by Debra M. Suiter, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Memorie M. Gosa, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #9467Level: Advanced1 Hour
Standardization of measures used in the interpretation of videofluoroscopic swallow studies is necessary to facilitate communication across providers and to ensure the correct application of rehabilitation and compensatory strategies. This course will review the many videofluoroscopic swallow study metrics that are utilized across different stages of the lifespan, and report on the evidence that supports their correlation to treatment.

Polypharmacy & the SLP during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Presented by Jeanna Winchester, PhD
Video
Course: #9430Level: Intermediate4 Hours
Master skills to implement in your practice immediately with continued SLP Master Class. This 4-hour master class will identify factors contributing to polypharmacy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
