Development of a modified swallowing screening tool to manage post-extubation dysphagia

This new paper by Assoc. Prof. Martin Christensen and Michaela Trapl focuses on the condition of post-extubation dysphagia, which is becoming a growing concern for patients in the intensive care unit. The aim of the study was the development of a bedside swallowing screening tool to assess effective swallowing post-endotracheal extubation. This was a first step of a quality improvement initiative to promote a nurse-led and nurse-initiated bedside swallow screening tool, which will enhance both patient care and safety.
