SLPs must understand radiologic findings in the context of underlying conditions to make recommendations that facilitate functional feeding. This session will review pulmonary and neurologic conditions and provide cases to illustrate decision-making for optimal goals. 1043 What’s Wrong With My Patient? Lungs, Brains, & Moving our Profession into the Future TH 10:15AM-12:15PM / CC, 205ABC (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): James Coyle, U of Pittsburgh The medical record needs to be thoroughly understood by the dysphagia practitioner to enable informed clinical decision-making.
