1: Describe the normal anatomy of the tongue.
2: Explain how ankyloglossia affects the normal function of the tongue.
3: Describe how to achieve a complete release of ankyloglossia in order to optimise function and why supportive therapies are vital to the outcome.

Ireland Justin Roche, MB ChB, FRCPCH, FRCPI, ICBC
Abstract:

The management of tongue tie has many approaches. In this presentation we will explore the anatomy and physiology of normal tongue frenulae and that of ankyloglossia. How the structures affect function and how to manage them to optimise function. We will also discuss the problems that can be seen following incomplete release and reattachment. We will also cover complications during surgery and management options.

1: Describe the form and function of the Vagus Nerve (CN X).
2: Explain how the presence of ankyloglossia and it's associated changes in structure and function in the breastfeeding neonate can alter vagal tone.
3: Describe the concomitant implications of ankyloglossia to vagal function and a successful breastfeeding relationship.

Abstract:

Regulation of the autonomic nervous system is critical for the successful breastfeeding relationship of the dyad. This 1 hour lecture will first, review the anatomy and physiology of the Vagus Nerve (Cranial Nerve X) as it might potentially influence breastfeeding. It will then explore the myriad of ways that the presence of ankyloglossia could potentially influence dysregulation of vagal tone resulting in a myriad of complaints often seen in both members of the dyad when the neonate has ankyloglossia.

Kathy Parkes is a sought-after speaker and webinar presenter as well as a published author. She has lived all over the world, settling in San Antonio, Texas after her Air Force husband retired. Kathy is a Registered Nurse with a Masters in Nursing Education and received her International Board Certified Lactation Consultant designation in 1992. Her private practice, Breastfeeding Perspectives, adds to her over 30 years of lactation experiences, which include WIC staff and clients, in-patient hospital work on L&D, postpartum, and NICU, taking a hospital to Baby-Friendly designation, setting up a lactation visitation program for both a home health agency and for the largest birth doula organization in San Antonio, and providing home and office lactation visits for private clients. She specializes in tethered oral tissues (tongue-and-lip ties), milk supply problems, multiples, and preterm/late preterm infants.
On the fun side, Kathy met her husband of 47 years as she was jumping out of the airplane he was flying. (You could say she fell for him!) She loves animals, traveling, and gardening. Most of all, she loves teaching others about breastfeeding.

1: Name at least two (2) frenotomy assessment scoring tools to use with infants in their practice.
2: Discuss at least three (3) possible effects of ankyloglossia for infants.
3: List at least two (2) comorbidities that are possible in infants with ankyloglossia.

USA Kathy Parkes, MSN-Ed, BSPsy, RN, IBCLC, RLC, FILCA
Abstract:

Conservative estimations report that the number of frenotomies globally has tripled in the past 10 years. Breastfeeding/chestfeeding parents seek help on the internet, social media, support groups, lactation consultants, physicians, midwives, and other healthcare professionals and are frequently sent straight to a release provider without the care of the other providers. However, a tongue or lip tie is not always the cause of the feeding problems the dyad is experiencing. This session will provide information on assessment, diagnostic tools, comorbidities, treatments, and complicated case studies to broaden your knowledge about ankyloglossia.

Abstract:

Research repeatedly tells us that families experience significant levels of stress, fear and fatigue when navigating challenges with feeding their infant. These experiences have a significant impact on their well-being, negatively affecting both physical and emotional health. Compound this with the need to navigate information and emotions that surround surgical intervention like tongue tie releases and the subsequent impact on their child’s comfort and pain as well as fear about success after a release is completed. Parental involvement in the care of their infant’s feeding plan is essential for protecting their identity roles, decreasing risk of depression and anxiety, and increasing parent confidence and competence in caring for their child (Obeidat,2009). Health professionals have a crucial role to play in understanding and implementing a trauma informed, family centered care model when planning the timing of a tongue tie release and supporting the family through the journey. This session will highlight the four core concepts of family centered care as well as tenets of trauma informed care and ways to utilize this during the various stages of a tongue tie evaluation. We will also cover strategies to minimize trauma recurrence and empowering parents and caregivers throughout the process.

Abstract:

Infants and children with tongue-tie can have difficulty swallowing, poor breastfeeding latch, and difficulty transitioning to solid foods. The impact of tongue-tie on these functions can have long-lasting effects on a child's development and well-being. This presentation will include discussion on the anatomy and physiology of swallowing and how it can be impacted by a restricted lingual frenulum. It will include discussion on the typical development of oral motor skills during breastfeeding and transition to solids, and the impact that tongue-tie can contribute to the introduction of solid foods, and challenges with chewing and swallowing. Overall, this presentation will aim to increase your understanding the impact of tongue-tie on feeding and swallowing which is crucial for healthcare professionals working with infants and young children to improve outcomes for both the child and family.
