Mobile Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing
Dysphagia assessment brought straight to the patient. A small tube with a camera at the end is inserted through the nasal passage and into the hypopharynx. The patient is then given different consistencies and the swallowing is visualized on a computer connected to the endoscope. The procedure takes about 10 minutes to complete and can accurately evaluated aspiration and penetration as well use of compensatory strategies and safe diet consistencies.
FEES is the most cost effective way to instrumentally assess dysphagia.
