EP 20: Dysphagia meets nutrition and hydration with Rainer Wirth

In dysphagia management we often think about how our patients can swallow food and liquids the safest and most efficient way and what consistencies are best suited for them. But what about nutritional and hydration needs in people with dysphagia? In this episode we speak to Prof. Rainer Wirth about different nutritional and hydration requirements for elderly people, people with presbyphagia and dysphagia and how we, as clincians, can support our patients in meeting their nutritional and hydration needs.
