side-lying, chin-tuck, or head-rotation postures; effortful swallow, Mendelsohn, supraglottic swallow, or super-supraglottic swallow maneuvers) on swallowing physiology for individuals with neurologically induced dysphagia?
After reviewing and selecting the studies pertaining to neurological impairments, we examined only five of the seven postural techniques or maneuvers: chin-tuck, sidelying, and head-rotation postures and Mendelsohn and supraglottic swallow maneuvers.
examined these same effects with the supraglottic swallow maneuver .
Such techniques include a supraglottic swallow
, cyclic ingestion, head turn, double-swallow, and head tilt.
Several swallowing techniques are described here: supraglottic, super supraglottic, and modified supraglottic swallow
patterns; and the Mendelsohn maneuver.
Maneuvers included effortful swallow, Mendelsohn, supraglottic swallow, and super-supraglottic swallow.
Single studies reported using the chintuck posture  and the supraglottic swallow maneuver .
Maneuvers studied included the effortful swallow, the Mendelsohn maneuver, the supraglottic swallow
, and the super-supraglottic swallow
Maneuvers studied included effortful swallow, the Mendelsohn maneuver, supraglottic swallow, and super-supraglottic swallow.
Three studies examined the Mendelsohn maneuver [15,18,23], three examined the supraglottic swallow [15-16,26], and three examined the super-supraglottic swallow [15,26,30].
The latter reports findings from studies examining five behavioral interventions (chin tuck, effortful swallow, Mendelsohn maneuver, supraglottic swallow
, and super-supraglottic swallow
) and the impact of these interventions on physiological and functional swallowing outcomes.
The systematic reviews investigated the specific compensatory swallowing postures and maneuvers commonly used by SLPs, including side lying, chin tuck, head rotation, effortful swallow, Mendelsohn maneuver, supraglottic swallow
, and super supraglottic swallow
, and examined the impact of these treatments on physiology, functional swallow ability, and pulmonary health for nondisordered healthy adults, neurological populations, and head and neck cancer populations.
