was not
Kahrilas et al (1988) found that the UES opened _ and _ as bolus volume increased.
Welch et (1992) found that chin tuck posture narrowed three dimensions of the pharynx:
narrowed laryngeal opening
tongue base to pharyngeal wall
entrance to airway
According to Horner & Massey (1988)aspiration following stroke is often _
Three factors that contribute to opening the UES in the order that they occur are:
CP muscle relaxes
larynx elevates and goes forward opening the UES
pressure pushes bolus down
Airway closure occurs first at the _, then at the _, and then at the _.
true vocal folds
airway (false vocal folds, arytenoids, base of epiglottis)
There are three spaces in the phayrnx which can collect food if the swallow is abnormal. These are the:
left pyriform sinus
right pyriform sinus
Pressure is always applied to the _ of the bolus during the pharyngeal swallow.

I need to find the cause for this patient's swallowing discomfort.
What do you not say to a dr when you want an order for a MBS?
I need to find out if this patient is aspirating.
