Interview with Prof Pere Clavé, who will answer the following questions.
1) What is the condition of dysphagia, and how may a disphagia patient be recognized?
2) Why does a generalized loss of muscle mass and strenght aggravate dysphagia?
3) How many people live with undiagnosed dysphagia?
4) Is there a link between dyphagia, malnutrition, and sarcopenia? How do you prevent malnutrition and sarcopenia in dysphagia patients?
In this lecture, Dr. Litchford, Registered Dietitian, will examine the relationships between protein malnutrition and sarcopenia in patients with dysphagia, and will discuss the synergetic relationship between nutrition interventions and exercise to promote muscle protein synthesis.
In this lecture, Dr. Hidetaka Wakabayashi, Director of the Japan Association of Rehabilitation Hospital and Institution, will present how swallowing muscles are inevitably affected by malnutrition, the concept and definition of dysphagia due to sarcopenia (sarcopenic dysphagia), and Iatrogenic sarcopenia, the currently known information on the diagnosis and treatment of sarcopenic dysphagia, and how to manage it.
This symposium discusses protein-energy malnutrition, frailty, and sarcopenia, which are common overlapping problems affecting health outcomes for older patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) that often go unrecognized and untreated. We urgently need validated integrated protocols to screen, assess, diagnose, treat,and monitor all these conditions to improve the outcome of older patients with OD.
Successful transition of patients receiving tube feeding from hospital to home requires careful
planning and appropriate documentation by a healthcare professional. Learn from a US home tube feeding
expert and nutrition educator about the key considerations to address upon discharge, including a potential
change in the tube feeding regimen to support quality of life at home. Documentation required for home
tube feeding coverage is discussed in addition to updates regarding the transition from legacy feeding
tubes and feeding supplies to the ISO 80369-3 compliant devices.
