Evidence Based Assessment
Did you know that FEES is evidenced based and considered a gold standard in swallowing evaluation? FEES can give you much of the same information as can be gained from a Modified Barium Swallow Study (MBSS).
Reports written and printed immediately following completion of the study which are then printed and left at your facility for continuity of care. No more messing with poor fax quality reports!
Mobile FEES is a cost effective instrumental assessment of swallowing reducing the need to transport the patient to the hospital and costing approximately 1/4 the cost of the MBSS.
Sending patients back to the hospital can be costly. Prevent re-hospitalization costs by prevention of pneumonia. By accurately assessing a patient's ability to swallow and creating an appropriate plan of care for diet management and therapeutic treatment.
Mobile FEES allows you to see the swallow and to visualize the pharyngeal structures. Let's face it, we don't have x-ray vision and to properly assess and treat dysphagia, we need to see what's happening!
With FEES, there is no need for radiation and no need for barium. Patients are given food that may be mixed with green food coloring to determine physiology of the swallow.
