Feeding the Dysphagic Patient
If feeding patients or nursing home residents is part of your role as a health care worker, this book is for you. Jam-packed with crucial information on how to safely feed patients with swallowing problems, or dysphagia, this book is a fascinating read but it's also a reference book you'll want to keep close at hand.
This comprehensive guide is full of practical advice about the basics of dysphagia and dysphagia diets, potential problems associated with dehydration, tube feeding, and aspiration pneumonia, as well as the unique swallowing problems faced by people with specific diseases such as Parkinson's.
Specifically created for use by nursing staff, certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in the United States, and personal support workers (PSWs) in Canada, this book was born out of a desire to maximize the skills of CNAs and PSWs, while making life better for people with dysphagia.
