Pediatric Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies
A Professional Manual with Caregiver Guidelines
Joan C Arvedson and Maureen A Lefton-Greif, 1998


Pediatric Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies is a professional manual that focuses on videofluoroscopic studies in children and reviews a child's anatomy and motor development as it relates to feeding. 
It gives a brief history of the modified barium swallow study, outlines the phases of swallowing and anatomic differences between infants and adults, and lists the reasons why most adult studies are not applicable to paediatrics. Using detailed illustrations and tables, the authors describe the procedures for conducting a videofluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS) in infants and older children, discuss interpretation of results, and define needs for future research. It also presents guidelines for referring clients for videofluoroscopic studies and describes the procedure. 

Reproducible guidelines for caregivers explain the process in easy-to-understand terms. They explain what parents and children can expect from the VFSS process and clearly describe and illustrate swallowing function.
