EP 21: Dysphagia in critical care with Sarah Wallace OBE

A clinical setting that we have not yet covered in this podcast is the intensive care unit (ICU). We were very lucky to have Sarah Wallace OBE as our guest, as she brings a lot of expertise from working clinically as an SLT in critical care as well as conducting research in this field.

In this episode, Sarah will explain why dysphagia on the ICU is multifactorial, why it is so important to restore airflow through the upper airway and how dysphagia clinicians take on a central role in weaning patients from the ventilator.
