A couple of thoughts from some friends: the rate of flow may be too fast. Has he had a swallow eval by a speech therapist? What is his disease process? Also, a hospice physician said that he should probably more thoroughly evaluated to see if there is some sort of blockage or constriction. So, the answers I found are basically two: rate of flow and a possible constriction. Also, when you say sick, what exactly do you mean?

That's all I have for now. Hope this helps!
