Handout: Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST)
This handout describes the anatomy/physiology involved in clearing foreign particles from the lungs. It describes how with dysphagia, this clearing action can sometimes be impaired due to poor cough strength. EMST is described, along with pictures of samples of EMST tools and a research study that links EMST use with progress in dysphagia therapy.
