Description

Clinical observations suggest that many hospital patients and nursing home residents are given straw sips of thin liquids by others while reclining in bed. The purpose of this study is to analyze the sip size volume of healthy, young individuals when seated at differentiated angles to determine “average” sip size volumes at each angle. The results of this study will provide further information for future research regarding strategies that will potentially decrease the occurrence of aspiration in patients.
