Abstract
Lorsqu’une personne a de la difficulté à avaler les liquides clairs, il y a un risque que du liquide entre dans ses voies respiratoires plutôt que d’aller dans l’estomac. On appelle ce phénomène l’aspiration et cela se produit lorsque de la nourriture ou du liquide « passe dans le mauvais tuyau ». L’aspiration peut augmenter les risques de pneumonie (infection des poumons). Elle peut aussi être très désagréable et faire tousser. Lorsqu’on a un problème de déglutition (difficulté à avaler), il peut être difficile de boire une quantité suffisante de liquides épais pour rester hydraté. Pour vous assurer de boire assez de liquides, vous pourriez peut être boire de l’eau entre les repas. Ce dépliant donne des conseils pour boire de l’eau de façon sécuritaire entre les repas et réduire les risques d’étouffement.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Drinking Water Between Meals" pamphlet 1159. Some people have problems swallowing thin liquids. This means that some liquids may go into their airway instead of their stomach. This is called aspiration. Aspiration is the word used when food or drink goes ‘down the wrong way’. Sometimes aspiration can increase the chance of getting pneumonia (lung infection). It can also be very unpleasant and cause coughing. It may be hard to drink enough thick liquids to stay hydrated. To make sure you get enough liquids, you may be able to drink water between meals. This pamphlet gives guidelines for drinking water safely between meals for people with swallowing problems so that there is less chance of choking.
