Swallow Test

We can travel directly to the facility you are staying at and conduct a swallow test conveniently in our medical van.

Swallow Test

Swallowing disorders, otherwise known as dysphagia, can occur at any of the three phases of the swallowing process. For instance, you might have difficulty swallowing at the pharyngeal phase, oral phase, or esophageal phase. Regardless of where your swallowing problems occur, you are probably anxious to determine the cause of the issue and receive needed treatment to regain your ability to eat and drink without difficulty.

Before treatment solutions can be provided, however, your doctor will likely recommend a swallow test to determine the location and severity of your swallowing problems. When this occurs, at TwinCity Medical Mobile, we can travel directly to the facility you are staying at and perform the swallow test conveniently in our medical van. This way, you do not have to spend up to half a day at a hospital or outpatient facility dealing with the testing process.

During your swallow test, we will have you consume food or drink containing barium. After you do this, we will track the swallowing process using X-rays and record the results via DVR. These results will be submitted to all necessary parties, including your medical provider, and after the swallow test is over, you can resume your daily activities once more without any recovery or downtime.

At TwinCity Medical Mobile, we perform swallow studies at extended care facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and many other locations. Reach out to us today to find out more about how we can help your care center!
