Support dysphagia

Dysphagia is characterized by a feeling of discomfort or blockage when food travels between the mouth and the stomach, sometimes accompanied by aspiration. Difficulties swallowing are frequent in a number of pathologies. It can affect more than half of patients who have suffered a cerebrovascular stroke and up to 80% of patients with Alzheimer’s or neurodegenerative disorders. It is estimated that 60% of elderly people living in their own homes may have difficulties swallowing and thus feeding themselves or drinking. The severity of these difficulties varies and ranges from moderate discomfort to a complete inability to swallow. The consequences can be more or less serious, and can result in respiratory infections.

The DSA Pack

To help prevent false routes, many products of hydration or nutrition are recommended to change textures but none are standardized or characterized by a measured texture. A functional assessment of the patient’s swallowing is essential to propose the right product. Therefore Nutrisens Medical has developed a Standardized Assessment of Dysphagia (DSA® – Dysphagia Standardized Assessment) via the DSA pack®. It offers a comprehensive approach combining a functional test and solutions tailored to each profile of patients, for a better management of problems related to dysphagia.
