Adaptation, compensation, and decompensation of the pharyngeal swallow

Abstract

Under normal circumstances, the act of swallowing adjusts to varying demands of different bolus characteristics and different head and neck postures. When the swallowing mechanism is impaired by disease, adjustment is essential to compensate for the impairment and allow swallowing. Evidence of adjustment can be demonstrated by cineradiography which provides important clues to the presence of underlying disease. When adjustment to disease is inadequate, swallowing decompensates. In this case, gross changes in swallowing performance are evident from clinical evaluation and cineradiography.
