    Dysphagia 20:105-7. 2005
    ..We conclude that the gag reflex is as specific as but less sensitive than the BSA in detecting dysphagia in acute stroke patients. An intact gag may be protective against longer-term swallowing problems and the need for enteral feeding...

    Stroke 37:2984-8. 2006
    ..Desaturation during swallowing may help to identify aspiration in stroke patients. This study investigated pulse oximetry, bedside swallowing assessment (BSA), and videofluoroscopy as tests for detecting aspiration after stroke...
