Does Swallowing Velocity Correlate with Acidic Gastroesophageal Reflux Indices in Children with Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients are known to have increased acid gastroesophageal reflux (AGER). We previously showed that chemical clearance (CC) after AGER events is delayed in the CF population. Theoretically, CC could be affected by swallow velocity. The aim of the study was to test the possible correlation of declining swallowing velocity with increasing AGER Indices.
