Abstrakt Abstract:

Stroke is one of the most common diseases in Sweden and the third most common cause of death (National guidelines concerning stroke, 2000). Dysphagia is a common problem for stroke patients with almost 50 percent of patients suffering from severe swallowing dysfunction (Axelsson, Asplund, Norberg & Eriksson, 1989). The purpose of this study was to investigate how stroke patients with dysphagia experience their swallowing disorders. The method used was a qualitative literature study. An analysis of content was carried out using ideas and inspiration from Graneheim and Lundman (2003). The results are presented in three categories: lost swallowing function, changed sense of community and lost hope for recovery. The results showed that stroke patients with swallowing dysfunction were influenced in different ways: physically, psychologically and socially. The nursing staff have an important role trying to understand patients' experiences in order to offer them the best care.
