Forgo the inconvenience of driving to swallow tests and choose a mobile test instead.
When you run a care facility, you want the best for your residents. Part of this includes seeking out the best medical testing and treatments for them. When a doctor suspects a patient might have issues with swallowing or aspirating, they may order a modified barium swallow test for them. Fortunately, we offer such tests that are both accurate and convenient for your patients, so they don’t have to spend unnecessary energy going to a medical facility. We will come to you in our medical van to perform the modified barium swallow test at your Gastonia, North Carolina care facility.
Here at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we understand that many patients who need swallow tests don’t have the energy or ability to drive to a medical facility to get the test done. The doctor who has recommended the test can put in an order for us to come to your facility instead, and we can have the test done in about 45 minutes on average. We have a speech and language pathologist on our team to perform the test, so you can trust that the modified barium swallow test will be performed correctly to obtain accurate results that will help the doctor and/or speech therapist come to a proper diagnosis for your patient.
Our modified barium swallow tests will entail having the patient consume a food or beverage that contains a small amount of barium. Then we will use an x-ray to track the barium through the three phases of the swallowing process to identify any oddities or issues that occur while swallowing. From there, the speech pathologist can determine any need for diet changes or speech therapy to account for the swallowing disorder.
Give the residents in your care facility the convenience and care they deserve when you decide to forgo the trip to the hospital or other medical facility for a swallow test and choose to work with our mobile crew instead for modified barium swallow tests. You’ll find that our process is easier, faster, and more convenient for patients. If you’re interested in making the switch to mobile swallow testing, just give us a call today.
