This presentation  defines oropharyngeal swallowing disorders, or dysphagia, and risks of aspiration of ingested foods and liquids, leading to pulmonary contamination, infection, and death. The incidence of aspiration pneumonia, and infectious disease frequently associated with disordered swallowing are described relative to high morbidity and mortality. Discussion focuses on patient populations at highest risk for aspiration pneumonia with a brief review of the modified barium swallow procedure for assessing oropharyngeal swallowing difficulties.
