FEES Video Examples

The video recorded FEES examples are of actual patients and are only one swallow trial taken from a completed study.  View each one carefully and observe both the normal and abnormal events occurring.  Analyze each using the 5-point Airway Protection Scale (ASP) found on this website and the 5-point Yale Residue Scales.  Then seek to determine the necessary underlying biomechanical reasons for your observations:

Sample 1

Sample 2

Sample 3 Elderly normal piriform triggered swallow

Sample 4

Sample 5
