Oropharyngeal dysphagia is a major complaint among many patients suffering from neurological diseases as well as in the elderly. Its severity ranges from moderate difficulty to complete inability to swallow, and it may give rise to clinically relevant complications such as aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition and/or dehydration, impaired quality of life, and death. However, despite its high prevalence and even though it would be very cost-effective to avoid complications by adequate treatment, dysphagia is still severely underdiagnosed. The contributions in this book present and discuss state-of-the-art diagnostic methods, treatment, and care of dysphagia patients, putting special emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach. A variety of clinical specialists will find this publication a most valuable addition to their library, including nurses, speech-language pathologists, dieticians, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and related specialties.

Dysphagia and globus sensation (globus pharyngeus)

Dysphagia should be identified and the patient referred for further investigations without delay. Dysphagia should be differentiated from the feeling of a lump in the pharyngeal region (globus sensation). If globus sensation is suspected the possibility of an organic disorder must be excluded. Dysphagia is uncommon in comparison with other upper abdominal symptoms. Dysphagia may also be a manifestation of a neurological condition, which usually would also have other symptoms.
