Brief Answer: Follows Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that bulbar palsy occurs due to impairment of function of the cranial nerves IX, X, XI and XII, , these are the lower cranial nerves and actively involved with functions of body like swallowing etc and there palsy results in difficulty in swallowing , chewing , nasal regurgitation , slurring of speech etc. So sometimes it is necessary to do a tracheostomy for maintainence of breathing. Take care. Dr.Shruti
