I want to understand more about the above subject, my Dad is experiencing more than usual difficulties swallowing tablets, so some medicines are being changed to liquid format. What happens though when someone can't or has difficulty swallowing (i.e. If something goes down the wrong way)? What I mean is, why/how can they develop phnemonia? This may seem like a stupid question post but I need it all clearer in my mind!! By the way, there won't be any peg intervention x
Simple explanations greatly appreciated x
Ps if someone chokes on their food/drink, then what do you suggest?
