Des conseils de sécurité pour éviter l'aspiration (nourriture ou liquide entrant dans les poumons) et l'étouffement y sont proposés.

This pamphlet provides a list of signs that may mean you have swallowing problems. Safety tips to prevent aspiration (food or liquid going into your lungs) and choking are offered.
