Abstract

Expiratory air flow preserves the freedom of the upper airway from foodway contamination in patients with dysphagia. Valving the tracheostomy cannula, "quad coughing," the Heimlich maneuver, the "supraglottic swallow," and coupling to a ventilator each has a place among the measures used for treating aspiration.
