VED

 

VED is an endoscopic procedure performed in the ENT (ear, Nose, Throat – Otolaryngologists) doctor’s office for those patients with frequent swallowing and choking disorders.

It is performed with the assistance of a speech therapist and at this time the patient is given some food in a variety of consistencies and is filmed in real time swallowing through a flexible endoscope introduced by the patient’s nostril.

It is a painless examination and is performed with the patient awake. It can last about 20 minutes.

Therefore, if you have difficulty swallowing certain foods or have frequent choking, be sure to schedule your appointment with one of the Otogrupo specialists.
