About

Examining the validity of a novel 3 oz protocol in patients with tracheostomies as compared to the gold standard of instrumental swallow assessments (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of the Swallow or Modified Barium Swallow Study).

Full description

The purpose of this research study is to determine if a 3 oz water screening protocol is an effective screen for patients with openings in their airways (i.e. tracheostomies). This procedure is already in use for many different populations and is particularly useful for clinicians who want to understand who is at risk for having food or liquid enter the lungs while eating or drinking (i.e. aspiration).
