In this one-day workshop, Dr Julie Cichero will review background information regarding cervical auscultation and the recent literature pertaining to the anatomy and physiology of swallowing and risk factors associated with development of aspiration pneumonia. Registrants will be given an opportunity to develop an appreciation of the acoustic characteristics of normal and abnormal swallowing cycles and an understanding of the current information on the cause of swallowing sounds. Participants will have a practical opportunity to correctly place a stethoscope for auscultation of swallowing and swallow-related breath sounds.
It is suggested that participants have read the Speech Pathology Australia Dysphagia Clinical Guideline prior to attending the workshop accessible via the SPA Website.
Stethoscopes are provided for the practical sessions, however, you are welcome to bring your own stethoscope if you have one.
