  22. Oral Prep Phase
    • -Voluntary & Can be bypassed
    • -Bolus formed (food broken down and moistened with saliva)
    • -Lingual velar closure prevents premature spillage
    • -Airway open, nasal breathing, labial seal, 
    • -Duration is variable
  23. Oral (Transport) Phase
    • -Voluntary
    • -Food moved to back of mouth by tongue (AP rolling)
    • -Tongue propels bolus into pharynx
    • -Duration: 1-1.5 seconds
  24. Pharyngeal Phase
    • -Involuntary
    • -Respiration put on hold
    • -Airway closure
    • -Velum is raised to prevent food entering nasopharynx
    • -Bolus driven through the pharynx
    • -Tongue is retracted to prevent food from re-entering mouth and drive bolus into pharynx
    • Duration: 1-2 seconds
  25. What is the most important phase of the swallow?
    Pharyngeal phase
  26. 3 actions that occur to protect the airway
    • 1. Larynx & hyoid pulled up & forward
    •   -lowers epiglottis
    •   -creates vacuum in pharynx pulls bolus down
    •   -relaxes CP to open esophagus
    • 2. Epiglottis flaps over larynx
    • 3. Larynx closes at:
    •   -Base of epiglottis to aryepiglottic folds
    •   -False VF
    •   -True VF
  27. Esophageal phase of swallow
    • -Involuntary
    • -CP/UES relaxes and is pulled open
    • -Bolus is pulled down esophagus
    • -larynx lowers and returns to original position
    • -CP contracts to prevent reflux
    • -Respiration resumes
    • -Duration: 8-20 seconds (longer in elderly)
  28. When food or bolus enters vestibule/airway to any level but not below the superior surface of the true VF
  29. Entry of food into the airway below the level of the true vocal folds
  30. What is the technical term for bedside eval?
    Clinical evaluation
  31. What does a bedside evaluation include?
    • -History
    • -Physical inspection of swallowing musculature
    • -Observation of swallow (test swallow)
  32. What is the order of solids from "Least restrictive" to "most restrictive"?

    • -aspiration with delayed sensation
  39. How would you interpret nasal regurgitation?
    velopharyngeal imcompetence
  40. How would you interpret food stuck in throat, especially solids?
    • Weak laryngeal constrictors
    • reflux
    • poor hyolaryngeal movement
