Abstract for Poster-Presentation

Background:

Dysphagia is a common complication after stroke. Early assessment of swallowing can prevent severe consequences such as aspiration pneumonia. The Gugging Swallowing Screen (GUSS), a valid and widely-used bedside-screen, has been criticised to overestimate the necessity of nasogastric tubes (NGT) compared to fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) in severe stroke patients. This cross-sectional study compares the diet recommendations of GUSS and FEES as well as the actually implemented dietin severe stroke patients and investigates if they differ because of the items „vigilance“ and „voluntary cough“ in the GUSS-pretest.

Methods:

The diet-recommendations given by FEES, GUSS and the actually implemented diet were compared for 20 patients with severe acute stroke (National Institute of Health Stroke Scale [NIHSS] ≥ 15).

Results:

The GUSS recommended nothing per os (NPO) for all severe strokes; in 50% of these, FEES recommended equally NPO. For the other ten patients, the FEES recommended a less strict level-1 diet. This diet was implemented in five cases, all other patients received NPO. Eleven out of 15 patients with NPO showed insufficient vigilance whereas all five patients with level-1 diet were awake (p=0.004). Only 1/15 (7%) patients administered to NPO could cough voluntary compared to 2/5 (40%) with diet level-1 (p=0.071).

Conclusion:

GUSS is a suitable diagnostic-tool for dysphagia in severe stroke patients. In clinical practice, the decision for NPO is based on vigilance but not on the ability of voluntary coughing. The additional use of FEES may prevent NGT in severe stroke with good vigilance.

PATIENTS WITH MILD AS WELL AS WITH SEVERE ACUTE STROKES BENEFIT FROM SYSTEMATIC DYSPHAGIA SCREENING AND DIETARY MODIFICATION TO PREVENT PNEUMONIA: A REGISTRY STUDY.

Abstract:

Background and purpose: Early swallowing screening and dietary modifications are recommended to decrease the risk of stroke-associated pneumonia (SAP). Swallowing screenings are often not used in mild strokes, and might overestimate the necessity for nasogastric tubes in severe strokes. In this observational study we investigated how dietary recommendations based on the Gugging Swallowing Screen (GUSS) relate to SAP and dysphagia in stroke severity subgroups. Methods: Retrospective database analysis of 1394 patients admitted with acute stroke between 2012 and 2014 at the stroke-unit of the University Clinic Tulln. Results: Of 993 patients screened with GUSS, 50 patients developed SAP. National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores on admission were 0-4 in 377 (38%), 5-9 in 296 (30%), 10-14 in 136 (14%), and ≥15 in 184 (19%) patients. In these NIHSS-subgroups, 3%, 4%, 6%, and 11% respectively developed SAP, and 34%, 61%, 89%, and 95% had dysphagia (GUSS score <20). Nasogastric tubes were necessary in 60/184 (33%) patients with severe strokes (NIHSS ≥15). Among severe strokes 118 (64%) were designated nil per mouth (NPO), and another 34 (19%) who were given pureed food would have received NPO according to a water-swallow test. Conclusion: Despite the low SAP rates in mild strokes, 34% of patients had dysphagia and should therefore not be omitted from dysphagia screening. The multi-consistency screening GUSS allows a special diet even in severe strokes if dysphagia is moderate. Patients with severe strokes might profit from an additional instrumental evaluation of swallowing to decrease the use of nasogastric tubes.
