Wheelchair Positioning to Optimize Respiration
Presented by Michelle Lange, OTR/L, ABDA, ATP/SMS
VideoText
Course: #1258Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Wheelchair positioning is designed to provide postural support and alignment, pressure distribution, and stability for functional activities. Positioning can also be used to optimize respiration by facilitating an upright trunk and head and supporting the diaphragm. This course presents common positioning scenarios where respiration may be compromised and interventions to address these concerns.

If You Cannot Breathe, You Cannot Swallow... Breathing and Swallow Coordination in Respiratory Disease
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #1249Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Respiratory and swallow systems are connected in a variety of ways that have implications for both the respiratory therapist and the dysphagia clinician. This course will describe those relationships in healthy individuals and in patients with respiratory disease and will provide options for interventions because...if you cannot breathe, you cannot swallow.
