Abstract

Many patients can struggle to swallow tablets, capsules or other oral
medicines.1 Especially in an aged care environment, this can often
result in practices such as crushing, and/or mixing with vehicles
that can adversely affect the pharmacodynamics of the drug in an
individual patient.1 Dysphagia is the medical term used when a
patient has difficulty swallowing. Patients with dysphagia may be at
risk of aspiration.
