This handout is designed for rehabilitation therapists working with patients, staff, family, and caregivers to ensure best practices when it comes to general aspiration precautions in the context of dysphagia. Many of these straight-forward strategies are frequently overlooked; this visual is meant to provide a visual reminder for everyone involved in the care and safety of someone experiencing dysphagia. Note that these are general precautions and are not meant to target any one particular dysphagia diagnosis. Specific strategies will need to be added for individual cases.
