Abstract

The feeding skills and health of 73 adults with severe developmental disabilities who aspirated were examined between 1986 and 1990. Sixty individuals had profound mental retardation (82%) and 48, cerebral palsy (66%). Modified barium swallow studies, esophagrams and gastric follow- throughs were completed on 67 clients (92%). Twenty adults aspirated barium. Aspiration was specific for barium texture in 8 (40%). Mobility, level of mental retardation, or feeding skills did not discriminate those who aspirated. Mealtime respiratory distress (65%) or chronic lung disease (55%), however, were significantly associated with aspiration. More studies are needed on the early identification and management of aspiration.
