Abstract  The development and use of an 8-point, equal appearing interval scale to describe, penetration and aspiration events are described. Scores are determined primarily by the depth to which material passes in the airway and by whether or not material entering the airway is expelled. Intra-and interjudge reliability have been established. Clinical and scientific uses of the scale are discussed.
Key words  Dysphagia - Aspiration - Penetration - Scaling - Deglutition - Deglutition disorders

To Listserv:
  I was wondering if John Rosenbek's Penetration-Aspiration Scale is a standard
or another scale like this is when you complete MBS and write reports.  I know
that we describe what happens during aspiration or penetration and how far it
goes and if patient is silent or not.  If patient can clear or not.  We don't
currently use this scale but if it's a standard then I would like to adopt it if
we need to.
  Thanks
