    14.Swallowing Disorders Unit / Deglutology Unit

    Swallowing/Deglutition is a complex physiological process, and several conditions can interfere with this process. Dysphagia and swallowing problems are common and can occur in any age group interfering with routines of eating and drinking that can normally be taken for granted. There are many causes: Head and Neck Cancers, Neurological (CVA, Neurodegenerative Disorders), Structural damages are some of common causes of swallowing disorders (Dysphagia). Patients are referred to the Swallowing Disorders Unit/ Dysphagia Unit/ Deglutology Unit to undergo assessment of their swallowing function for identification, management and treatment of Dysphagia. Imaging methods such as Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study (VFSS) and Endoscopic examination (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing- FEES) could also be undertaken if indicated.

    Management of the swallowing disorder is done through counselling the patient and caregivers of specific swallowing techniques/ strategies/ dietary modifications to follow while feeding and surgical intervention if necessary.

    Significance of Swallowing Disorders Unit/ Dysphagia Unit/ Deglutology Unit:

    • Research shows that about 5% of general population have dysphagia.
    • One in two head and neck cancer patients suffer from swallowing disorders, while 80% of adults with Motor neuron disease and children with cerebral palsy and Down syndrome suffer from the same.
    • Adults with Dementia (13 to 57%), Parkinson’s disease (35 to 80%), Mental illness (32%) and prolonged medical care due to old age (30%) also suffer from dysphagia in a large extent.
    • Swallowing difficulties impact normal life drastically not only for the patient but even their care givers. It often leads to malnutrition, dehydration and recurrent chest infections. Mortality rates are also significantly high among these patients. Sometimes, patients have recurrent hospital admission and prolonged hospital stays leading to repeated courses of antibiotics and dependence on feeding tubes, which in turn, increase the financial burden of the families. Notwithstanding its incidence and the influence, it has on so many aspects of daily life as well as on health and wellbeing, swallowing disorders remains undetected and untreated in many medical institutions and residential care home, globally.
