|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Dysphagia||Other: Toronto Bedside Swallowing Screening Test (TOR-BSST©) Procedure: Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||100 participants|
|Study Start Date :||May 2011|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||November 2015|
|Med/Surg ICU Inpatients, Intubated ≥ 48 hours||
Other: Toronto Bedside Swallowing Screening Test (TOR-BSST©)
All enrolled patients will be screened for dysphagia by two blinded screeners using the TOR-BSST©.Procedure: Videofluoroscopic Swallow Study
All enrolled patients will undergo a videofluoroscopic assessment of swallowing within 24 hours of being screened with the TOR-BSST©.
- Validity of the TOR-BSST© [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]The validity of the TOR-BSST© will be measured using sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV). Results of the videofluoroscopic assessment of swallowing will be used as the gold standard comparison.
- Inter-rater reliability of the TOR-BSST© [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]Inter-rater reliability will be calculated using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC).
- Estimation of the incidence of dysphagia in adult acute patients following prolonged intubation [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
- Description of the impairment characteristics of dysphagia in adult acute patients following prolonged intubation [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
