Disfàgia. Com cuidar a una persona amb disfàgia

És la dificultat o impossibilitat d'empassar els aliments sòlids i/o líquids. Les causes de la disfàgia poden ser diverses. Des de malalties que afecten la musculatura, com a fragilitat en pacients molt majors, producció escassa de saliva o lesions en la llengua i genives.

Els pacients amb disfàgia tenen risc de deshidratació i poden patir problemes respiratoris. Per evitar-ho cal realitzar cures específiques, sobretot modificant la consistència dels aliments.
