Default Loud Swallowing

My sister can no longer talk. She takes all food by feeding tube. We are noticing how loudly she swallows now. Every time she swallows it sounds like a loud gulp. Wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the reason is? (She will not use Bi-Pap)

Any insight is appreciated.

Thank you!

Default Re: Loud Swallowing

It may relate to the muscles that regulate air and liquid flow through the throat into the esophagus being weaker, so she is pushing more air than the passageway was intended for. Does she still take any liquids by mouth?
