About

This is a prospective, randomized controlled clinical trail involved Elderly Patients With Dysphagia.The goal of this clinical trial is to compare the clinical effect of Intermittent Oro-esophageal Tube Feeding in Elderly Patients With Dysphagia. The main questions it aims to answer: Can Intermittent Nutritional Tube Supplementation help improve the nutritional status in Elderly Patients With Dysphagia. Participants will be divided into two groups randomly. All patients are given routine rehabilitation and the intervention group is given Intermittent Oro-esophageal Tube Feeding once a day.

Full description

The current situation of dysphagia in elderly individuals is characterized by difficulty or discomfort in swallowing. This condition can occur due to various factors such as muscle weakness, neurological disorders, or structural abnormalities in the throat or esophagus. Dysphagia can lead to complications such as malnutrition, dehydration, aspiration pneumonia, and reduced quality of life. It is important for healthcare professionals to assess and manage dysphagia in elderly patients to ensure proper nutrition and prevent potential health risks.
