Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) Test

If You Need A Swallowing Study, There’s No Reason to Go to D.C.! We’ve Got You Covered Right Here in Brandywine!

Your physician has referred you to one of our Speech-Language Pathologists to test your ability to swallow. You will have an examination called a Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) test.

What happens during a FEES test?

A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) who is specially trained in doing a FEES test will have you get comfortable in a seated position, while a small camera called an endoscope, is placed in one of your nostrils and moved through your nose into your throat.

The SLP will give you varying consistencies of food and/or drink that has been safely colored with green food coloring. The color shows up clearly on their device so they can view food and liquid as it moves through your throat.

The pictures taken using the endoscope allow the SLP to review the images with you once you have completed the test.

Is a FEES test safe? Does it hurt?

The passing of the endoscope through your nose may cause some discomfort at first. Once the endoscope is above your throat, any discomfort you are feeling will stop. The test is extremely safe with a low risk of complications or side effects. The amount of food and/or drink you are given by the SLP will be carefully controlled. The test lasts approximately 45 to 50 minutes.

How should I prepare for my FEES test?

The great thing is there is no preparation necessary. There are no meal or medication restrictions. You can eat and drink as you normally do, prior to the appointment. If you are currently receiving your food and/or drink through a feeding tube you can take your feeds as normal up until your appointment. Your feeding tube does not need to be removed before the test.

What happens afterwards?

The exam is recorded on video so you can view portions of it right after it is over. Recommendations will be discussed with the SLP at the time of the test and a full report is sent to your referring physician.

Where can I go to have this test done?

You do not have to go far. You do not even have to travel into the District for this test. In fact, you can have the test performed really close to home, right here in your own backyard! The MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network, Brandywine, MD clinic is close by and convenient for you to come in for a FEES test. We’re located at: 13950 Brandywine Road, Brandywine, MD 20613 or call 301-782-2250 to make an appointment.

Behavioral Medicine Self-Help for Stress, Pain, Sleep and Preparation for Surgery

NOTE:  All these audio files in both sections can be downloaded to your smart-phone into your music folder or onto your computer or even burnt on an audio CD.

Preparing for Surgery

Hello my name is Dr. Philip Appel and I am a clinical health psychologist and Director Emeritus of Psychology at the MedStar National Rehabilitation Network.  Your physician and medical team would like you to be as comfortable as possible and feeling confident about your upcoming surgery.  Research has found that when people create a positive mindset about their surgery they get better faster and have fewer complications.  To that end we are providing you with this self hypnosis audio file to help you prepare for your surgery.  In this mental exercise you will learn to relax and concentrate on suggestions for healing and wellness.  You may want to listen to this once a day until your procedure date, so as to really implant in your mind that everything will go well.  Know that you can relax with the knowledge that your physician and your well trained medical team will provide you with expert care; and to help you relax we are providing you with this audio file to listen to, to mentally prepare for your procedure.

Below are several downloadable audio files that we have created to assist you in coping with your illness, disability, insomnia or pain.

Exercise 1 is a hypnotic version of a choiceless awareness mindfulness meditation to expand awareness in such a way that the individual is not aware of any one thing. The exercise teaches one to observe experience without having to react or respond.

Exercise 2 is a progressive sensory muscle relaxation exercise learning to use gravity and body temperature to achieve a mental state of deep relaxation.

Exercise 3 is a guided meditation in the art of Disidentification learning how the experiencer is not the experience. This exercise is useful for emotional and physical pain.

Exercise 4 is a self-hypnosis exercise to foster sleep to help those who are having trouble sleeping.

Exercise 5 is a self-hypnosis exercise for reducing pain using Dr. Mark Jensen’s suggestions.

Exercise 6 is a guided Imagery Exercise for reducing pain using a script by Belleruth Naparstek.

Astym® Therapy

A new type of soft tissue treatment called Astym®  is a manual, tool-based treatment designed to treat soft tissue dysfunctions that contribute to pain and movement restrictions.  A physical therapist uses a set of plastic tools ranging in size, and glides them over the patient’s skin along the path of the muscles, ligaments, and tendons to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.  This treatment, in addition to a customized physical therapy program incorporating stretching, strengthening, and manual therapy, has been proven through a variety of research to decrease pain and improve function even when other methods have failed.

Because Astym® solely addresses soft tissues, it will not relieve pain associated with nerve impingement, osteoarthritis, disk involvement, or spinal degeneration.

Astym®  can commonly be used for:

  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Tendonitis of the foot and ankle
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Medial and lateral epicondylitis of the elbow
  • Hamstring and calf strains
  • Non-radicular low back/neck pain
  • Upper trapezius tightness/cervicogenic headaches
  • Patellar tendinopathy

MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network, Chevy Chase, MD, is located at 5454 Wisconsin Avenue Suite 401 (street level). 

To schedule an appointment to see if ASTYM is right for you, please call 301-215-4481

Portable Health Profile

Keeping your own medical information in a portable health profile (PHP)

It’s important that you know and keep track of changes in your own important health information. Because people see many different healthcare providers, this can be difficult to do. Using a portable health profile (PHP) can make keeping track of your health information easier. When you give healthcare providers the right information, you help them take better care of you.

Portable Health Profile

  • includes basic health information, such as medical conditions, allergies, functional abilities, advance directives and emergency contacts
  • helps you organize information from many different sources into one place
  • should be taken to healthcare appointments so it’s easier for you to answer questions/provide information
  • keeps your important healthcare information together for emergencies

An example of a PHP has been provided for you. We suggest you write in pencil so you can update the PHP as things change. You can also find similar PHPs on your computer at:

Please let us know if you need any help updating your PHP with the new information from your stay at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital.
