Abstract

Many people are affected by the consequences of brain damage. The duration and severity of the different sequel or injuries that it provokes, constitute a health challenge of great importance. The causes of brain damage are diverse: cerebrovascular accident, traumatic brain injury, anoxia, brain tumor or infection that affects the brain level as meningitis.

One of the problems that most often affect these patients is dysphagia, a factor very related to respiratory complications, but especially with problems in the diet. It is essential, to minimize the risk of respiratory problems and to make the necessary adaptations in diets, to avoid the appearance of serious problems such as malnutrition and/or dehydration. To avoid these consequences, it is necessary to carry out an assessment of the nutritional status that facilitates the detection of these cases and perform a timely nutritional intervention.

Given the evidence that shows the relationship between a healthy diet and the evolution of the sequelae of brain damage, the early intervention of a nutrition professional is considered very important.
