Aging and the Respiratory Functions of the Aerodigestive Tract: What’s Normal and What’s Not

As SLPs, we cannot assess swallowing and speech function without a keen understanding of the physiologic functions of the respiratory system. These respiratory and ventilatory functions predict the quality of many things the patient does, including talking and swallowing. In this session, we’ll provide a deeper understanding of the disease processes that affect communication and swallowing so you can more effectively manage communication and swallowing disorders in sick older adults.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • name three structural changes in the respiratory system associated with aging
  • name three physiologic changes in the respiratory system associated with aging
  • identify abnormally rapid respiratory rate, low oxygen saturation, and common arterial blood gas values
