Post Extubation Dysphagia
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01849679|

First Posted : May 8, 2013

The investigators hypothesize that aspiration will be more prevalent at two to four hours post-extubation but will resolve in the majority of patients by 24 to 26 hours post-extubation.
The purpose of the research is to investigate whether there is a difference in swallow function two to four hours after extubation (removal of breathing tube) compared to 24 hours after extubation. This information will help healthcare providers decide if it is necessary for people to wait 24 hours after extubation before they start eating and drinking.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Severity of Aspiration in Post-extubated Subjects||Other: Evaluation of Swallowing|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||71 participants|
|Official Title:||The Effect on Time After Extubation on Aspiration Risk|
|Study Start Date :||March 2013|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||February 2016|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||February 2016|
Other: Evaluation of Swallowing
Evaluating for pharyngeal delay, pharyngeal stasis, and penetration/aspiration
- Severity of Aspiration per Evaluation [ Time Frame: post-extubation at 2-4 hours and possibly 24-26 hours. ]Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow (FEES - a measure of swallowing which will allow for the diagnosis of swallowing) will be recorded at between 2 to 4 hour after extubation. If penetration/aspiration is noted during the evaluation between 2 to 4 hours post-extubation, then a second FEES evaluation will be completed between 24 to 26 hours post-extubation.
