Course Webinar: Modified Barium Swallow Studies in Infant and Pediatric Patients

Course description: At this time, there are very few infant or pediatric protocols and even less data on normative measures for infant and pediatric modified barium swallow studies (MBSS). This course will present the research on infant/pediatric swallow studies. The course will review candidacy for an MBSS, and include videos of MBSS to identify impairments and discuss clinical analysis.

Presented by Jennifer Raminick, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

Originally presented: Tuesday, January 19, 2021

Jen Raminick graduated from CSULB and has been a speech-language pathologist at CHOC Children’s for 7+ years. She has earned her Board Certified Specialist accreditation in Swallowing and has multiple leadership roles in the hospital, including a chair of the Clinical Practice Committee to guide patient care. She has mentored graduate students and fellow therapists, with an emphasis on MBSS and acute care inpatient competency. At CHOC, she has led a committee to implement the International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative, providing guidance and education to multiple departments throughout the hospital. She has also worked on a team to write a grant for Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing equipment and is working to develop a comprehensive FEES program. She has been both a national and regional speaker, presenting at the California and American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s annual conventions covering topics such as feeding on High Flow Nasal Cannula and implementing the IDDSI. She has also spoken as a pediatric dysphagia specialist to graduate students at CSULB.
