Describes the recovery of an individual with severe spastic dysarthria, a motor speech disorder, and illustrates the close relationship between intelligibility measures and physiological parameters. Use of phonetic feature analyses in combination with acoustic and physiological information to...
- Costs and burden of ankylosing spondylitis in China. // PharmacoEconomics & Outcomes News;Oct2014, Vol. 713 Issue 1, p13
The article reports on a study published in the journal "Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology," which found that about 10% of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in China are without a job because of the disease, and their costs increase with disease activity.
- Ankilozan Spondilit HastasÄ±nda Tek AkciÄŸer Ventilasyonu. Sazak, Hilal Günal; Taşdelen, Müge; Sıcakkan, Ayçin; Çetin, M. Cenk; Şavkılıoğlu, Eser // Journal of the Turkish Anaesthesiology & Intensive Care Society ;Sep2009, Vol. 37 Issue 5, p314
Ankylosing spondylitis is a progressive inflammatory disease characterized by stiffening of the joints. Stiffness of the cervical spine, atlantooccipital and temporomandibular joints might lead to difficult intubation. One-lung ventilation is the most important component of an anesthetic...
- The Role of the Supraglottic Area in Voice Production. Stager, Sheila // Otolaryngology: Current Research;Special Issue2012, Vol. 2 Issue S, p1
The article presents information on the role of the supraglottic area in vocal or speech production. An important structure of this area which lie above the true vocal folds(TVF) and below the tongue base is the false vocal folds (FVF). Cadaveric studies which examined the influence of...
- Speech Disorders in Right-Hemisphere Stroke. Dyukova, G.; Glozman, Zh. M.; Titova, E. Yu; Kriushev, E. S.; Gamaleya, A. A. // Neuroscience & Behavioral Physiology;Jul2010, Vol. 40 Issue 6, p593
Clinical practice shows that right-hemisphere cerebral strokes are often accompanied by one speech disorder or another. The aim of the present work was to analyze published data addressing speech disorders in right-sided strokes. Questions of the lateralization of speech functions are discussed,...
- Bite Block Vowel Production in Apraxia of Speech. Jacks, Adam // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2008, Vol. 51 Issue 4, p898
Purpose: This study explored vowel production and adaptation to articulatory constraints in adults with acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) plus aphasia. Method: Five adults with acquired AOS plus aphasia and 5 healthy control participants produced the vowels [I], [e], and [Îµ] in four...
