June 2, 2021
Hosted by Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP
MyLiquitab, is the world’s first innovative product that uses ultrasonic technology converting solid dose medications to liquids. At its core It is revolutionary and can positively impact millions of people in the United States from the youngest child to the oldest adult. The number of people who cannot swallow solid dose medications is growing annually and statistics indicate that 1 in 3 older adults has some difficulty swallowing solid dose medications. For anyone who has every visited a nursing home or hospital, the disruptive and jarring metal clang, clang, clanging of the pill crushing device used to crush medications is inescapable. Crushing medication is a common occurrence in all care settings, as 30% of all people admitted to hospitals and those residing in nursing homes have difficulty swallowing solid dose medications. Manually grinding medication is time consuming, and healthcare workers can attest to the stress and resulting physical discomfort on their hands, wrists and shoulders. In addition, there is also a risk of inhaling aerosols from the medication being transformed. With the increasing number of older adults who choose to remain in their own homes as they age, so the number of people experiencing swallow difficulties with concomitant difficulty swallowing solid dose medication will also increase. Every ill-health category has a component that affects a person's ability to swallow from the common cold and sore throat to most serious conditions (throat and neck cancer, Neurologic Disorders, Strokes, Parkinson's Disease, dementia, Brain Injuries, as well as persons with with Intellectual Disabilities and psychiatric illnesses. Keith Dobson has invented a game changing device. The use of ultrasonic technology includes toothbrushes, measuring babies in utero, locating people's veins and now MyLiquitab uses ultrasonic technology for medication delivery.
