Phonatory Effects of Airway Dehydration: Preliminary Evidence for Impaired Compensation to Oral Breathing in Individuals With a History of Vocal Fatigue
- Speech Breathing Behavior and Vocal Fold Function in Dysphonic Participants Before and After Therapy During Connected Speech: Preliminary Observations. Schaeffer, Natalie // Contemporary Issues in Communication Science & Disorders;Fall2007, Vol. 34, p61
This research is an extension of the author's previous research in which speech breathing values (on the respigraph) of participants with abuse-related dysphonia and those with normal voices were compared during connected speech. Results from the previous study revealed that the dyphonic group...
- STRIKE THE RIGHT CORD. Kelchner, Lisa N.; Brehm, Susan Baker // ASHA Leader;3/1/2013, Vol. 18 Issue 3, p49
The article focuses on voice problems in children and how they can be overcome. According to the authors, the factors that cause voice difficulties are the usual, vocal use and hydration, and other factors that include general health, diet, and environment. Some helpful suggestions include...
- The Effects of Three Nebulized Osmotic Agents in the Dry Larynx. Tanner, Kristine; Roy, Nelson; Merrill, Ray M.; Elstad, Mark // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Jun2007, Vol. 50 Issue 3, p635
Purpose: This investigation examined the effects of nebulized hypertonic saline, isotonic saline (IS), and sterile (hypotonic) water on phonation threshold pressure (PTP) and self-perceived phonatory effort (PPE) following a surface laryngeal dehydration challenge. Method: In a double-blind,...
- VOICE RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY. On Flow Phonation and Airflow Management. Titze, Ingo R. // Journal of Singing;Sep/Oct2015, Vol. 72 Issue 1, p57
The article discusses flow phonation and airflow management in voice training. The two components of the glottal airflow, namely, the steady component and the nonsteady or acoustic component, are explained. Some elements of flow phonation are discussed including impedance which can either be...
- Respiratory and laryngeal measures of children and women with bilateral vocal fold nodules. Sapienza, Christine M.; Stathopoulos, Elaine T. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Dec94, Vol. 37 Issue 6, p1229
Examines the relationship between disordered voice production of children and women, specifically bilateral vocal nodules and respiratory function. Laryngeal aerodynamic/acoustic observations; Chest wall kinematic observations; Disordered voice production versus normal voice production;...
- Do Vocal Warm-Up Exercises Alleviate Vocal Fatigue? Milbrath, Rochelle L.; Solomon, Nancy Pearl // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2003, Vol. 46 Issue 2, p422
Vocal warm-up (WU) exercises of varying types and durations have been suggested as a way of improving vocal function. However, limited research has been conducted to assess the effects of vocal WU exercises on normal or disordered voices. This study attempted to manipulate vocal function,...
- Unmasking Voice Disorders. Von Berg, Shelley // ASHA Leader;10/23/2001, Vol. 6 Issue 19, p6
Part II. Discusses the characteristics of a voice disorder called paradoxical vocal fold movement (PVFM). Description of a PVFM episode; Difficulties in diagnosing PVFM; Influence of psychosocial issues on PVFM.
- Chronic voice abuse and bilateral vocal fold cysts. Sataloff, Robert T.; Hawkshaw, Mary // ENT: Ear, Nose & Throat Journal;Dec1996, Vol. 75 Issue 12, p768
Presents a case study of a 29-year-old woman suffering from chronic voice abuse and bilateral vocal fold cysts. Description of bilateral, slightly asymmetric fluid-filled masses which deformed on contact; Resection of both masses during surgery; Follow-up therapy.
- GLOTTAL CONFIGURATION, ACOUSTIC, AND AERODYNAMIC CHANGES INDUCED BY VARIATION IN SUTURE DIRECTION IN ARYTENOID ADDUCTION PROCEDURES. Inagi, Katsuhide; Ford, Charles N.; Connor, Nadine P.; Bless, Diane M.; Suzuki, Tatsutoshi; Nakajima, Masami // Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology;Oct2002, Vol. 111 Issue 10, p861
Examines the role of arytenoid adduction, a phonosurgical procedure in reducing posterior glottal gap size and improving voice. Variation of suture direction; Identification of optimal combination of factors for reducing glottal gap; Production of arytenoid muscles through suture tension.
