New Video of Phlegmy Throat

In this video, the patient suffered from a severe phlegmy throat after suffering from a stroke. His secretions did not pass down to his stomach, but rather collected in his throat causing constant throat-clearing and coughing up clear phlegm.

As you can see in the video, there is a tremendous amount of mucus pooling present.

Treatment was geared toward improving his swallowing function so that his secretions would not collect in his throat.
