Humans swallow at least 900 times a day: around three times an hour during sleep, once per minute while awake and even more often during meals.
We swallow food, liquids, medicine and saliva. People who have trouble swallowing are at risk of poor nutrition and dehydration and respiratory concerns.
A Speech Pathologist is the main health professional who is responsible for caring for people living with swallowing difficulties.
