121. Clinical Predictors of Oro-esophageal Tube Feeding Success in Brain Injury Patients With Dysphagia Full Text available with Trip Pro

into two groups, based on the OE tube training success. Clinical factors assessed included age, cause of brain lesion, gag reflex, cognitive function and reasons for OE tube training failure.Of the 76 cases enrolled, 56 study patients were assigned to the success group, with the remaining 20 in the failure group. There were significant differences between these two groups in terms of age, gag reflex, ability to follow commands, and the score of Korean version of Mini-Mental Status Examination (K-MMSE (...) ). Location of the brain lesion showed a borderline significance. Multivariable analysis using logistic regression revealed that age, cause of brain lesion, gag reflex, and K-MMSE were the main predictors of OE tube training success.A younger age, impaired gag reflex and higher cognitive function (specifically a K-MMSE score ≥19.5) are associated with an increased probability of OE tube training success in dysphagic patients.

122. Role of bromocriptine in multi-spectral manifestations of traumatic brain injury Full Text available with Trip Pro

cases of traumatic brain injury in minimally conscious state were enrolled in the study. After hemodynamic stability, bromocriptine was given at paediatric dose of 3.75 mg/d and adult dose of 7.5 mg/d. It was administered through a naso-gastric (NG) feeding tube in the patients with minimally conscious state, then changed to oral route after proper swallowing and good gag reflex were ensured in the patient. The drug was slowly reduced over three weeks after neurological improvement in the patients

123. Collet-Sicard Syndrome With Hypoglossal Nerve Schwannoma: A Case Report Full Text available with Trip Pro

Collet-Sicard Syndrome With Hypoglossal Nerve Schwannoma: A Case Report Collet-Sicard syndrome is a rare syndrome that involves paralysis of 9th to 12th cranial nerves. We report an uncommon case of schwannoma of the hypoglossal nerve in a 39-year-old woman presented with slurred speech, hoarse voice, and swallowing difficulty. Physical examination revealed decreased gag reflex on the right side, decreased laryngeal elevation, tongue deviation to the right side, and weakness of right trapezius

failure rate and its related coughing and gagging when compared with mini dose.The use of succinylcholine compared with none can facilitate LMA insertion and reduce insertion-related reflexes without significant postoperative myalgia. However, additional prospective studies with a larger sample size are required to fully evaluate the dose-dependent effect and complications of succinylcholine for LMA insertion.© Article author(s) (or their employer(s) unless otherwise stated in the text of the article (...) that succinylcholine reduced the first-attempt LMA insertion failure rate (RR, 0.22; 95% CI 0.12 to 0.43), coughing and gagging (RR, 0.26; 95% CI 0.15 to 0.45) and laryngospasm (RR, 0.14; 95% CI 0.05 to 0.39). The use of succinylcholine did not result in a significant increase of postoperative myalgia (RR, 2.58; 95% CI 0.79 to 8.44) and did not reduce the risk of postoperative sore throat (RR, 0.76; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.03). Subgroup analysis further showed that low-dose succinylcholine reduced the LMA insertion

damage, requiring tracheotomy and gastrostomy. These patients were unable to swallow, produce valsalva, yawn, and needed oral suctioning. Examination included fiberoptic nasopharyngoscopy, gag reflex and soft palate assessments, otoscopy, and tympanometry.Nineteen patients (38 ears) were evaluated: 14 men and 5 women, aged 18 to 93 years (average 59). Duration of gastrostomy and tracheotomy were between 3 months and 18 years. All the patients lacked gag reflex, palatal movements, or supraglottic

and viscous solution (combination group, n = 170). We compared the number of pharyngeal observable sites (non-inferiority test), pain by visual analogue scale, observation time, and the number of gag reflexes between the two groups. Results The mean number of images of suitable quality taken at the observable pharyngeal sites in the spray group was 8.33 (95 % confidence interval [CI]: 7.94 - 8.72) per patient, and 8.77 (95 % CI: 8.49 - 9.05) per patient in the combination group. The difference (...) in the number of observable pharyngeal sites was - 0.44 (95 % CI: - 0.84 to - 0.03, P = 0.01). There were no differences in pain, observation time, or number of gag reflexes between the 2 groups. Subgroup analysis of the presence of sedation revealed no differences between the two groups for the number of pharyngeal observation sites and the number of gag reflexes. However, the number of gag reflexes was higher in the spray group compared to the combination group in a subgroup analysis that looked

inflammation of the mucosa, which triggers copious mucus production [ ]. Gastric reflux may also cause pooling of fluid in the hypopharynx [ ]. Oropharyngeal or gastric contents may be aspirated into the larynx and lower respiratory tract. Factors predisposing to aspiration include impaired consciousness, old age, impaired cough or gag reflex, and structural diseases of the airway and upper gastrointestinal tract. People who aspirate may have recurrent episodes of choking, coughing, or pneumonia

Reduced conscious level is also an indicator of aspiration risk. 37 The gag reflex is unreliable and insensitive as an independent predictor 26 and should only be used as part of a more detailed assessment procedure (see section 3). 38 One screening study suggests that reduced pharyngeal sensation may be associated with aspiration

They can be almost constantly present, or rarely seen. 3) Automatic chewing (lips typically closed) and swallowing are frequently present. 4) Blinking is a common finding (including blinking while the lids are closed). The patient who has an essentially preserved brain stem, intact cranial nerves and end organs, will have preserved pupillary, corneal, oculocephalic, vestibulo-ocular, gag and cough reflexes. With brain stem or cranial nerve (...) for the imagery tasks could have elicited some type of cortical response independent of awareness, some kind of a very sophisticated knee-jerk reflex. Ropper suggested that instead of cuing the patients with “playing tennis” versus “relax”, Monti’s team should have asked patients “imagine playing tennis” and compared with “imagine not playing tennis”. Perhaps nothing in clinical medicine is as complex as the assessment of consciousness, thus Allan Ropper, Andrew Billings, and others(3)(13)(14)(15) all hold

Obviously not. “Okay,” I said, “let’s come up with a plan that doesn’t require you to swallow big pills all the time. I know that it’s not easy when you have a strong gag reflex and have to take big pills. Let’s find something that works well for you.” He smiled broadly and seemed to relax. I
