As a warm up, we want to know: why did you become a SLP (in 1 tweet only!) #slpchat
Stephanie @swmslo
Accident! I was an education major, hated it, took an intro to speech class and loved it! #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
Initially, I wanted to work with kids. #slpchat
@slptanya
I was going to be a Dr but wanted a life for family (not a workaholic despite twitter evidence to contrary!) #slpchat
Liza @zealousidler
I'm not an SLP yet, but I'm fascinated with language and I loved teaching children, so it seemed like a way to combine interests. #slpchat
Stephanie @swmslo
P.S. Twitter friends... joining a group chat and may tweet excessively.. we'll see. Apologies in advance. #slpchat
Shareka/Tanya @SLPChat
What are you currently using for dysphagia or feeding assessment? #slpchat #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
Welcome all!! Excited to chat. My absolute favorite part of speech!! #dysphagia. #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
I use the MASA and the Sage Oral cavity assessment at bedside. Also do MBSS. #slpchat
Shareka @speechreka
@apujo5 I've never heard of the MASA. Is it standardized? #slpchat

Tip #?: plz be warned that in a chat sometimes the tweets don't show up immediately. Keep checking back in your timeline. #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
MASA is the Mann Assessment of Swallowing Ability and is standardized. Gives you degree of dysphagia/aspiration. #slpchat
nisham @nisham
@apujo5 I'm a student...what does MASA stand for? #slpchat
John du Bois (He/Him) 🔜 U-Con @JohnduBois
Can anyone point me to any resources documenting how long to wait post-extubation before attempting a swallow eval & why? #slpeeps #slpchat

RT @JohnduBois: cn anyone point me 2 any resources doc how long 2 wait post-extubation before attempting a swallow eval & y? #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
Steven Leder has done a lot of research on trach. I believe also extubation. I know that I've learned 48-72 hours post. #slpchat
nisham @nisham
@apujo5 Got it. Doe this replace a standard bedside evaluation or done before or after it? #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
@nisham I combine the MASA with the standard bedside. It looks at different aspects of swallow and you rate it. #slpchat
Tiffani Wallace @apujo5
@nisham looks at areas such as lingual movement, laryngeal elevation, cough, dysarthria..... #slpchat
Shareka/Tanya @SLPChat
What intervention techniques are you using at present? #slpchat
