Interpretation of Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies of ADULTS

# e09   Interpretation of Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies of ADULTS

by Jeri Logemann, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BCS-S

0.5 CEUs

$ 89.00

Dysphagia practice today by the SLP is based on the principles taught in this course.  Developed by Jeri Logemann, PhD, this course aims to improve the ability of the dysphagia clinician to diagnose and plan treatment interventions for oropharyngeal dysphagia in adults though videofluoroscopy.  Included are 25 videofluoroscopic swallow studies of various swallowing disorders in adults. Participants will learn to determine the cause(s) of swallow abnormalities and plan treatment strategies that address the cause(s) of abnormal swallow function. A downloadable handout discusses each swallow study, including the rationale for the diagnosis and treatment planning recommendations. A formal written report is also included for each swallow study. Offered for 0.5 ASHA CEUs – 5 contact hours. 

Participants will learn to:

  • Interpret MBS studies in adults.
  • Link symptoms of dysphagia with specific swallowing disorders.
  • Improve patient outcomes and patient satisfaction through more accurate diagnostic skills.
  • Plan treatment programs based on swallow physiology and on effects of treatment introduced during the swallow study rather than only on signs and symptoms of dysphagia.
  • Improve report-writing skills.
Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.
Course Format:  Videofluorographic swallow studies streamed online with downloadable handout discussing each swallow study. This course requires that you have Adobe's Flash Player installed. Click here to download the Flash Player.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify anatomic abnormalities that contribute or cause swallowing disorders.
  • Identify physiologic abnormalities that cause swallowing disorders.
  • State intervention strategies related to specific swallowing disorders that have been shown effective in preventing aspiration, dehydration or malnutrition.
  • State intervention strategies related to anatomic abnormalities that cause or contribute to abnormal swallowing behavior.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to
receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.

"The information provided and the way in which it was organized is very useful. It gives a different perspective and easy to follow treatment plans. It would be a good tool to use for graduate dysphagia classes." – A.P. (Mar. 2017)

"I appreciated the interventions for various swallow dysfunction. I liked the ability to watch different videos and comment on them, then compare my comments to the report." – C.M. (Dec. 2016)

"I found the charts identifying the effects of swallow maneuvers that are visible on the X-Ray. I liked the videos of actual MBSS's completed." – A.J. (Dec. 2016)

"All of the material was beneficial. Thank you for offering this material. I liked the content, organization, accuracy, depth, videos, presenter's passion for the subject, presenter's sense of responsibility, presenter's dedication. I am forever thankful to you, Dr. Logemann." – R.S. (Nov. 2016)

"I liked all of the VFSS and the interpretation given to compare to my interpretation and recommendations. It was easy to follow the information." – K.S. (Nov. 2016)

"I liked the videos and simple, user-friendly ways to word reports so that families and patients will understand. Some of the videos could be a little clearer, and it would be helpful if the type and amount of bolus given was announced prior to showing the trial." – M.C. (Nov. 2016)

"I found the most benefit from watching the videos in the recommended format: watch first, make notes, and then read the report. I found this to utilize crticial problem-solving skills to determine possible etiologies for the subjects without having the case history ahead of time. The practicality is great! As a clinician who conducts 1-3 MBS studies per week, it was nice to view a myriad of etiologies and increase my confidence in interpreting studies." – S.G. (Nov. 2016)

"I appreciated the sequencing of introduction to solutions of aspiration. I liked the downloadable manual, individual pace, and that I can keep materials for later review." – M.H. (Oct. 2016)

"The identification of specific phsyiological dysfunction and appropriate treatment or strategies to help the pt was most beneficial." – K.A. (Oct. 2016)

"The variety of the patient presentations in the studies was very helpful to expose me to cases which may be more rare to observe in week-to-week assessment." – J.B. (Oct. 2016)

"I appreciated understanding what different swallowing disorders look like on a video, lots of time to see different disorders and anatomical structures." – K.H. (Sept. 2016)

"I enjoyed the diversity of reports exposing different etiologies and intervention approaches. I liked that the course was on-line and had no time restrictions." – X.O. (Aug. 2016)

"I loved the presentation of a clearly organized paradigm for dysphagia intervention which includes specific postural changes and swallowing maneuvers to try prior to diet consistency limitations. I loved the well-organized charts to guide multiple facets of dysphagia intervention. The image quality was a little poorer than I expected." – L.W. (Aug. 2016)

"I liked that the course had a wide variety of medical diagnoses. No 2 patients are the same or have the same symptoms, so I enjoyed that aspect. Good practice." – C.L. (July 2016)

"Excellent suggestions regarding specific swallow strategies and tx approaches for different types of swallowing disorders." – M.L. (June 2016)

"I appreciated working with the videos and being able to recognize aspiration and penetration as a student. I liked that it was interactive with the videos and had an easy to follow booklet." – K.C. (Apr. 2016)

"The course was well organized. The charts are a convenient resource. Also, I liked the ability to view a good amount and variety of different MBS in order to become familiar with anatomical landmarks, swallow function, and different disorders and procedures that affect the swallow." – J.F. (Mar. 2016)

"I appreciated the pages of information for review and inclusion of charts prior to watching videos. I liked the use of the videos allowing me to first make my assessment and then check my assessment with the reported results." – N.L. (Jan. 2016)

"The swallowing strategies to reduce aspiration/penetration were very beneficial." – M.Z. (Jan. 2016)

"The discussion about the order of intervention was especially helpful. I liked the delivery with the handouts plus real videos." – D.H. (Jan. 2016)

"I appreciated the review of the MBS and the recommendations. I liked the study guide and the MBS." – L.S. (Jan. 2016)
