The objective of the following research is the investigation of the impact that management of dysphagia has upon quality of life in persons with neurological pathology of vascular cerebreal attack type. The group of participants in this study has 6 members with ages between 34 and 69, all suffering from a neurological pathology of VCA type or cranio-cerebreal trauma with direct implications on the swallowing process. This paper used case study methode as experimental design, the goal being to detect the impact that speach therapy has on the dysphagia, in the context of safety and quality of life. A series of instruments regarding clinical evaluation of dysphagia and quality of life in the context of VCA and dysphagia where been translated and adapted in the fallowing research.

Catrinel FRÎNCU

Voice impairments associated with dysphagia – implications on quality of life. This reaserch was conducted with the purpose of studying the effect of voice impairments and dysphagia on the quality of life of adults. In order to do this, constructs such as general health, symptoms of voice disorders and dysphagia, quality of life were taken into consideration.
In the beginning, the subject was approached from a theoretical point of view and was given a general perspective on certain concepts like voice impairments and dysphagia.
The objectives of this reasearch are: the investigation of the perceived general health status of the adult with voice impairments and dysphagia; highlighting the main symptoms of voice impairmants and dysphagia; the evaluation of the quality of life of adults with voice impairments and dysphagia.
In order for the objectives to be reached, one participant was selected and the evaluation process started. After finishing the evaluation, an intervention plan was created with the purpose of facilitating the management of voice impairments and dysphagia symptoms and the increase of the quality of life.
