Dysphagia is an alteration associated with discomfort or swallowing problems. The person suffering from this disease has difficulty forming the food bolus (the portion of food to be swallowed) in the mouth or for the bolus to move from the mouth to the stomach. This disease can be dangerous because it can cause respiratory and nutritional problems. To avoid this, a specific care plan must be made. The most important thing is to modify the consistency of food and perform exercises to better prepare the food to be swallowed in the mouth.
