Presented by Tiffany Mohr, MA, CCC-SLP

Click here for a recording of the live webinar broadcast on November 4, 2014. This video includes a 40 minutes presentation with an additional 20 minute Q&A session.

In this video, you will learn about pneumonia, a breathing condition in which there is swelling or an infection of the lungs or large airways. Aspiration pneumonia can occur when food, saliva, liquids, or vomit is breathed into the lungs or airways leading to the lungs.  This presentation will cover the risk factors, symptoms, assessment, and treatment for aspiration pneumonia, as aspiration pneumonia can be a serious life-threatening complication for those with swallowing disorders.
