Keep Calm and Assess the Risk of Aspiration Pneumonia
Does aspiration = pneumonia? Maybe. This handout is designed to help Speech-Language Pathologists navigate this complex conversation with patients who are at risk of dysphagia. The handout breaks down the evidence base of three variables and how they stack up to different risks. This provides a clear visual as to how a healthy immune system and quality, consistent oral care may be a strong avenue to prevent aspiration pneumonia, even in the presence of aspiration risk.
