Sequelae of sarin toxicity at one and three years after exposure in Matsumoto, Japan. (1/189)

In order to clarify the later sequelae of sarin poisoning that occurred in Matsumoto City, Japan, on June 27, 1994, a cohort study was conducted on all persons (2052 Japanese people) inhabiting an area 1050 meters from north to south and 850 meters from east to west with the sarin release site in the center. Respondents numbered 1237 and 836 people when surveys were conducted at one and three years after the sarin incident, respectively. Numbers of persons with symptoms of sarin toxicity were compared between sarin victims and non-victims. Of the respondents, 58 and 46 people had symptoms associated with sarin such as fatigue, asthenia, shoulder stiffness, asthenopia and blurred vision at both points of the survey, respectively. The prevalences were low; some complained of insomnia, had bad dreams, difficulty in smoking, husky voice, slight fever and palpitation. The victims who had symptoms one year after the incident had a lower erythrocyte cholinesterase activity than did those who did not have symptoms at the early stage; such persons lived in an area with a 500 meter long axis north east from the sarin release site. The three-year cohort study clearly showed that the odds ratios of almost all of the symptoms were high in the sarin-exposed group, suggesting a positive relationship between symptoms and grades of exposure to sarin. These results suggest that symptoms reported by many victims of the sarin incident are thought to be sequelae related to sarin exposure.  (+info)

Intensive voice treatment (LSVT) for patients with Parkinson's disease: a 2 year follow up. (2/189)

OBJECTIVES: To assess long term (24 months) effects of the Lee Silverman voice treatment (LSVT), a method designed to improve vocal function in patients with Parkinson's disease. METHODS: Thirty three patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease were stratified and randomly assigned to two treatment groups. One group received the LSVT, which emphasises high phonatory-respiratory effort. The other group received respiratory therapy (RET), which emphasises high respiratory effort alone. Patients in both treatment groups sustained vowel phonation, read a passage, and produced a monologue under identical conditions before, immediately after, and 24 months after speech treatment. Change in vocal function was measured by means of acoustic analyses of voice loudness (measured as sound pressure level, or SPL) and inflection in voice fundamental frequency (measured in terms of semitone standard deviation, or STSD). RESULTS: The LSVT was significantly more effective than the RET in improving (increasing) SPL and STSD immediately post-treatment and maintaining those improvements at 2 year follow up. CONCLUSIONS: The findings provide evidence for the efficacy of the LSVT as well as the long term maintenance of these effects in the treatment of voice and speech disorders in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease.  (+info)

Is voice therapy an effective treatment for dysphonia? A randomised controlled trial. (3/189)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the overall efficacy of voice therapy for dysphonia. DESIGN: Single blind randomised controlled trial. SETTING: Outpatient clinic in a teaching hospital. PARTICIPANTS: 204 outpatients aged 17-87 with a primary symptom of persistent hoarseness for at least two months. INTERVENTIONS: After baseline assessments, patients were randomised to six weeks of either voice therapy or no treatment. Assessments were repeated at six weeks on the 145 (71%) patients who continued to this stage and at 12-14 weeks on the 133 (65%) patients who completed the study. The assessments at the three time points for the 70 patients who completed treatment and the 63 patients in the group given no treatment were compared. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Ratings of laryngeal features, Buffalo voice profile, amplitude and pitch perturbation, voice profile questionnaire, hospital anxiety and depression scale, clinical interview schedule, SF-36. RESULTS: Voice therapy improved voice quality as assessed by rating by patients (P=0.001) and rating by observer (P<0.001). The treatment effects for these two outcomes were 4.1 (95% confidence interval 1.7 to 6.6) points and 0.82 (0.50 to 1.13) points. Amplitude perturbation showed improvement at six weeks (P=0.005) but not on completion of the study. Patients with dysphonia had appreciable psychological distress and lower quality of life than controls, but voice therapy had no significant impact on either of these variables. CONCLUSION: Voice therapy is effective in improving voice quality as assessed by self rated and observer rated methods.  (+info)

Swallowing and voice effects of Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT): a pilot study. (4/189)

OBJECTIVE: To define the effects of Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT on swallowing and voice in eight patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. METHODS: Each patient received a modified barium swallow (MBS) in addition to voice recording before and after 1 month of LSVT. Swallowing motility disorders were defined and temporal measures of the swallow were completed from the MBS. Voice evaluation included measures of vocal intensity, fundamental frequency, and the patient's perception of speech change. RESULTS: before LSVT, the most prevalent swallowing motility disorders were oral phase problems including reduced tongue control and strength. Reduced tongue base retraction resulting in residue in the vallecula was the most common disorder in the pharyngeal stage of the swallow. Oral transit time (OTT) and pharyngeal transit time (PTT) were prolonged. After LSVT, there was an overall 51% reduction in the number of swallowing motility disorders. Some temporal measures of swallowing were also significantly reduced as was the approximate amount of oral residue after 3 ml and 5 ml liquid swallows. Voice changes after LSVT included a significant increase in vocal intensity during sustained vowel phonation as well as during reading. CONCLUSIONS: LSVT seemingly improved neuromuscular control of the entire upper aerodigestive tract, improving oral tongue and tongue base function during the oral and pharyngeal phases of swallowing as well as improving vocal intensity.  (+info)

Occupational voice disorders due to workplace exposure to irritants--a review of the literature. (5/189)

The medical literature contains relatively few examples of reports of voice disorders that could be attributed to chemical exposure at work. General medical conditions such as gastro-oesophageal reflux and the use of medication such as inhaled steroids are well-recognized causes of laryngitis, but the occupational causes are less well documented. This paper describes the results of a literature review looking at the reporting of cases of occupationally acquired voice disorders due to exposure to irritants in the workplace.  (+info)

Assessment of voice quality after carotid endarterectomy. (6/189)

OBJECTIVES: vocal cord paralysis is considered a rare complication of carotid endarterectomy (CEA), but alteration in voice quality may be more common. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the effect of CEA on voice quality and to correlate any changes with the extent of the dissection. DESIGN-MATERIAL-METHODS: thirty-five patients who underwent CEA were divided in two groups, according to the level of surgical dissection performed. The high-level dissection group was comprised of those patients that required mobilisation of hypoglossal nerve and division of the posterior belly of digastric muscle. The low-level dissection group included the rest. All the patients' voices were recorded and analysed digitally before CEA, one and three months after the operation. Voice data were measured for standard deviation of fundamental frequency, jitter, shimmer and normalised noise energy (NNE). All patients underwent a laryngeal examination pre- and post-operation. RESULTS: none of the patients had any vocal cord dysfunction on laryngoscopy. Significant changes of voice quality (jitter, shimmer, NNE) were noticed in the high-level dissection group (p<0.05) one month after the operation. Two months later, the voice changes had subsided, but still significant disturbances remained (jitter, shimmer). CONCLUSIONS: voice-related disturbances are far more common following CEA than is generally believed and, although they seem to for the most part temporary, they deserve attention. Specifically, high-level surgical dissection seems to be a risk factor of postoperative vocal impairment.  (+info)

Prospective functional voice assessment in patients undergoing thyroid surgery. (7/189)

OBJECTIVE: To analyze voice function before and after thyroidectomy for patients with normal preoperative voice using a standardized multidimensional voice assessment protocol. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: The natural history of post-thyroidectomy voice disturbances for patients with preserved laryngeal nerve function has not been systematically studied and characterized with the intent of using the data for postoperative voice rehabilitation. METHODS: During a prospective single-arm study, patients with normal voice underwent functional voice testing using a standardized voice grading scale and a battery of acoustic, aerodynamic, glottographic, and videostroboscopic tests before, 1 week after, and 3 months after thyroidectomy. Differences in observed sample means were evaluated using analysis of covariance or t test; categorical data was analyzed using the Fisher exact or chi-square test. RESULTS: Fifty-four patients were enrolled; 50 and 46 were evaluable at 1 week and 3 months, respectively. No patient developed recurrent laryngeal nerve injury; one had superior laryngeal nerve injury. Fifteen (30%) patients reported early subjective voice change and seven (14%) reported late (3-month) subjective voice change. Forty-two (84%) patients had significant objective change in at least one voice parameter. Six (12%) had significant alterations in more than three voice measures, of which four (67%) were symptomatic, whereas 25% with three or fewer objective changes had symptoms. Patients with persistent voice change at 3 months had an increased likelihood of multiple (more than three) early objective changes (43% vs. 7%). Early maximum phonational frequency range and vocal jitter changes from baseline were significantly associated with voice symptoms at 3 months. CONCLUSIONS: Early vocal symptoms are common following thyroidectomy and persist in 14% of patients. Multiple (more than three) objective voice changes correlate with early and late postoperative symptoms. Alterations in maximum phonational frequency range and vocal jitter predict late perceived vocal changes. Factors other than laryngeal nerve injury appear to alter post-thyroidectomy voice. The variability of patient symptoms underscores the importance of understanding the physiology of dysphonia.  (+info)

Quantitative analysis of professionally trained versus untrained voices. (8/189)

The aim of this study was to compare healthy trained and untrained voices as well as healthy and dysphonic trained voices in adults using combined voice range profile and aerodynamic tests, to define the normal range limiting values of quantitative voice parameters and to select the most informative quantitative voice parameters for separation between healthy and dysphonic trained voices. Three groups of persons were evaluated. One hundred eighty six healthy volunteers were divided into two groups according to voice training: non-professional speakers group consisted of 106 untrained voices persons (36 males and 70 females) and professional speakers group--of 80 trained voices persons (21 males and 59 females). Clinical group consisted of 103 dysphonic professional speakers (23 males and 80 females) with various voice disorders. Eighteen quantitative voice parameters from combined voice range profile (VRP) test were analyzed: 8 of voice range profile, 8 of speaking voice, overall vocal dysfunction degree and coefficient of sound, and aerodynamic maximum phonation time. Analysis showed that healthy professional speakers demonstrated expanded vocal abilities in comparison to healthy non-professional speakers. Quantitative voice range profile parameters- pitch range, high frequency limit, area of high frequencies and coefficient of sound differed significantly between healthy professional and non-professional voices, and were more informative than speaking voice or aerodynamic parameters in showing the voice training. Logistic stepwise regression revealed that VRP area in high frequencies was sufficient to discriminate between healthy and dysphonic professional speakers for male subjects (overall discrimination accuracy--81.8%) and combination of three quantitative parameters (VRP high frequency limit, maximum voice intensity and slope of speaking curve) for female subjects (overall model discrimination accuracy--75.4%). We concluded that quantitative voice assessment with selected parameters might be useful for evaluation of voice education for healthy professional speakers as well as for detection of vocal dysfunction and evaluation of rehabilitation effect in dysphonic professionals.  (+info)

It has been argued that personality, emotions, and psychological problems contribute to or are primary causes of voice disorders, and that voice disorders in turn create psychological problems and personality effects. This article provides an overview of recent concepts in personality and trait structure, briefly summarizes the Trait Theory which explains how personality may contribute to the development of primary muscle tension dysphonia and vocal nodules, reviews research aimed at testing the Trait Theory, and discusses clinical implications related to recognizing personality as a factor in the development, maintenance, and treatment of primary muscle tension dysphonia and vocal nodules.. ...
Korean teachers working conditions are deteriorating. There is concern about the deterioration of teachers health and voice disorder is one of the most common problems. Teachers vocal health is important for them and their students. The aim of the present study was to investigate working conditions that may affect voice disorders. In all, 79 primary and secondary schools were randomly selected for a nationwide school system survey (N = 3345). In 64 schools, 1617 (48.3%) teachers participated via a postal self-report questionnaire from June 2016 to August 2016. After applying inclusion and exclusion criteria, data from 1301 teachers were used for analysis. Multiple logistic regression was used to investigate the associations between general, work-related factors, and frequent voice disorders (fVDs) to estimate the adjusted odds ratio(aOR). Teachers who reported voice symptoms more than once a week (fVD) made up 11.6%. In a multiple logistic regression, fVD was significantly associated with female,

The vocal folds, groups of muscle tissue in the larynx, are normally open to allow breathing. When you speak, they close, and air from the lungs makes them vibrate. This produces sound. The size and shape of the vocal folds and surrounding cavities (throat, mouth and nose) help determine the pitch, volume and tone of your voice. This is what makes it unique. When illness or disease affects your voice, it can change the pitch, volume and quality of sound. Symptoms of a voice disorder include a hoarse, raspy or weak voice; decreased range in pitch, volume and projection; vocal fatigue; shortness of breath; coughing; sore throat; chronic throat clearing and voice loss. If these symptoms last longer than two weeks, seek the attention of a doctor. An otolaryngologist is the most qualified medical professional for diagnosing voice problems. ...

Purpose: The study aims to observe whether any systematic change in vocal fold configuration occurs during and after phonation into a tube using computerized tomography (CT). Materials and Methods: Ten participants diagnosed with functional dysphonia were included in the study. CT was performed when participants produced the sound (a:), phonated into a drinking straw and when repeating (a:) after the exercise. Similar procedure was performed with a stirring straw after 20 min of vocal rest. Anatomic variables included: (1) glottal area, (2) glottal width, (3) vertical vocal fold thickness, (4) vocal fold area, and (5) vocal fold length. Each vocal fold was separately analyzed. Results: Only glottal area for stirring straw was statistically different throughout the three time points. This variable increased during tube phonation compared to conditions pre- and post-tube. Discussion: Since vocal fold length did not change during tube phonation, the increment in glottal area was likely due to ...
Dear Dr. Cooper,. Im writing this letter to you to let you know how thankful both myself and my family are for your many years of expertise in the field of voice rehabilitation. Without your knowledge of how to treat the disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia, I would still be suffering from this voice disorder today. Below is a summary of what took place for the past 5 years of searching for a cure for my voice affliction.. In looking back at the five years of searching for a cure for my strained voice, I get upset when I think of all the doctors and speech clinicians at famous medical groups that Ive seen (12 in all) that were the top in their field who gave me absolutely no relief from my voice problem. Not to mention all the money they collected from me. Most of them were arrogant in their assessment of my strained voice but after months and months of treatment, I had no improvement. The problem that I see is not solely with the medical community. The health insurance industry is equally to ...

I am Ron Steger from Allenton, Wisconsin. I would like to share with you my experience with a very severe voice disorder. I was a dairy farmer for twenty years. For the last five years I have been a public speaker in the health and nutrition industry. Two years ago I started to lose my voice, and I couldnt talk. I went to my local clinic in Hartford, Wisconsin and saw a vocal speech therapist. She gave me some voice exercises and that made it worse. My career as a speaker and a trainer were over. I could not even communicate with my wife and my three children, much less work my business.. I traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to seek help at the Medical College of Wisconsin in November, 2002. Dr. Albert Merati diagnosed my voice disorder as Spasmodic Dysphonia, and Dr. Meratis recommendation for treatment was Botox shots for the rest of my life in my vocal chords.

The purpose of a clinical voice evaluation is to provide the referring laryngologist with patient-specific, clinically relevant pathophysiologic information of the actual voice production process used by the dysphonic patient, the nature of the dysphonic sound generated by a patient, and the physiologic conditions responsible for the sound production. The generated report must be clear and explanatory enough to aid the referring laryngologist with differential diagnosis and treatment planning. Moreover, the generated information must be capable of predicting treatment outcomes and powerful enough to warn the treating physician of any possible complications to the voice that may result from the proposed or planned treatment-whether medical, surgical, therapeutic, or a combination. Clinical voice evaluation is not a quick procedure. It may take up to 1 hour to conduct phonatory function studies (PhFS) on a noncomplicated patient, whereas it may take a substantially longer time to evaluate a ...

Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine the short-term effect of 2 semi-occluded vocal tract training programs, resonant voice training using nasal consonants versus straw phonation, on the vocal quality of vocally healthy future occupational voice users. Method A multigroup pretest-posttest randomized control group design was used. Thirty healthy speech-language pathology students with a mean age of 19 years (range: 17-22 years) were randomly assigned into a resonant voice training group (practicing resonant exercises across 6 weeks, n = 10), a straw phonation group (practicing straw phonation across 6 weeks, n = 10), or a control group (receiving no voice training, n = 10). A voice assessment protocol consisting of both subjective (questionnaire, participants self-report, auditory-perceptual evaluation) and objective (maximum performance task, aerodynamic assessment, voice range profile, acoustic analysis, acoustic voice quality index, dysphonia severity index) measurements and ...

Jürgen Konczak, Ph.D., professor in the School of Kinesiology is the principal investigator on an NIH funded grant program administered through the Universitys Office of Discovery and Translation that seeks to promote new therapies for rare diseases. The project will design and build a device that will improve the symptoms of a voice disorder called spasmodic dysphonia (SD).. People with SD experience involuntary spasms of the laryngeal musculature that leads to a strained or choked speech. There is no cure for the disease and speech therapy is ineffective. The device will alter how it feels when one speaks. The idea behind the technology is that this sensory trick will help patients to improve their voice quality. The device development and its testing will be conducted in Konczaks Human Sensorimotor Control Laboratory.. Arash Mahnan, biomedical engineer and doctoral student in the HSC lab will serve as primary research assistant for this project.. ...

Diagnosing Spasmodic Dysphonia is difficult since the voice can vary significantly and the symptoms can present very similarly to other conditions such as Voice Tremor or Muscular Tension Dysphonia (a very common voice problem). This can lead to increased frustration and anxiety in the person with the condition and delays in accessing effective treatment. Specialist multidisciplinary Voice Clinics use high quality video-endoscopy of the larynx and vocal cords to aid in the differential diagnosis of this condition. If you have been seen initially at the Melbourne Voice Analysis Centre, you will be referred to a Neurologist for neurological examination and then, if appropriate, for treatment with Botox injections (see below). In many cases, a trial of voice therapy with a speech pathologist is also offered prior to Botox.. ...
Botulinum toxin injections have been used to treat 31 patients with adductor spasmodic dysphonia. Injections of 3.00-3.75 units of botulinum toxin were performed bilaterally into the thyroarytenoid muscle. This treatment significantly decreased the standard deviation of the fundamental frequency of the speech sample, indicating a reduction in the variability of pitch amongst patients. A total of 96% of patients subjective diary reports showed an improvement with a median of 7 days to peak effect and a 5 week duration of peak effect.. ...

Currently, no specific battery of objective tests to assess the outcome is universally accepted. The purpose of this study was to investigate demographic, clinical, and treatment factors with voice outcome following Botox injection. Sixty-eight patients with adductor SD who underwent at least one Botox injection during a 5-year period were studied. Voice outcome measures were made from patient self-reporting scales and included overall vocal quality, length of response, and duration of breathiness. Vocal quality was significantly correlated with the underlying severity of vocal symptoms prior to treatment, incidence of ...

Voice use. Voice ability will be variable after surgery depending on the procedure. Do not be alarmed if the voice is better right after the surgery than 24 hours after surgery, since swelling from the surgery may take 24 hours before becoming maximal. If you are a voice professional, voice rest for 4 days is usually necessary before trying to speak. With the doctors permission on follow up, you may have enough voice to go onto modified voice rest for one week. To check if you are ready for modified voice use, you can do a sigh or gentle hum…. If there is an easily produced sound, you may use it at that pitch for speaking in a quiet room. Loud or stage whisper is not to be used. DO NOT force the voice. If you are a singer or voice professional, you must be checked at one week after surgery to determine if you are ready to go back to work. If you are on voice rest, carry an index card that says: Voice rest. Doctors orders. Thank you. ...

Below are my conclusions about my own voice hearing experience and I believe that drawing these conclusions has helped me silence my voice.. 1. Anti-Psychotics can quieten or silence my voice (this seems to vary from person to person). My problem was that my anti-psychotic seemed to block out my voice but made me very tired and down even on a low dose. This is why I kept trying to come off it and why I felt I had to face up to my voice.. 2. If my voice kept me awake at night, I found it best to take a sleeping pill every few nights to get a really good sleep (Consult your GP about this). When I was tired and demoralised I didnt think straight and I needed a good nights sleep.. 3. My Voice fed off my desire to experience something mystical in life. My voice used this desire to draw me in. My voice promised secret knowledge, sometimes described a frightening world or said I was a special person. I ended up concluding that my voice was just a voice and thats all it would ever be.. 4. My voice was ...
Voice and tone. Tone and voice. Though the words voice and tone are often used interchangeably, theyre not synonyms. Our voice makes us unique, and our tone makes us sound like humans. Establishing a likable voice is critical for brands, but theres more to it. Companies that acknowledge the distinction-maintaining a consistent voice and paying careful attention to their tone-publish more meaningful web content and build better relationships with their users.. Whats the bigger difference between voice and tone? Our companys voice is an expression of personality, and its ingrained in every piece of content we publish. Our voice is who we are. Our brands voice naturally grows over time, but it generally stays the same from day to day. Our brands tone, on the other hand, should change often. Tone of voice is an adaptive reflection of feelings. Think of it in terms of your own voice and tone: You have only one voice, but you probably use a certain tone when youre talking to friends or ...
Download our quick self-screener to find out if you should be concerned about the functioning of your voice. Never hesitate to call a laryngologist if you experience voice difficulties or sudden changes in voice. We use a number of tools to evaluate your voice and understand your condition. These include, stroboscopy (a camera that records your voice in action), acoustic and aerodynamic measures (that tell us about the nature of the sound wave being produced) and a physical examination of your face, neck and mouth. We integrate the information we get from these assessments to formulate the best treatment plan for you. Sometimes surgery is needed to effectively treat voice problems; however, many voice disorders can be addressed by changing the way in which the muscles of the voice are activated and improving the efficiency of the voice. When there is a large vocal fold lesion, cancer or a vocal fold paralysis where there is little contact between the two vocal folds, surgery is often necessary. ...
There are two common methods for injecting the muscles causing ABductor spasmodic dysphonia. The original and most widely used method is for the physician to grasp the voice box (the thyroid cartilage) and rotate it toward one side. A long needle is then passed in from the side of the neck until it reaches the back side of the voice box. When the muscle is identified by an EMG (electromyographic) signal, the Botox medication is instilled. The procedure is repeated from the opposite side.. The method that Dr. Thomas uses is translaryngeal, meaning through the voice box. It is similar to the ADductor approach. Numbing medication is placed in the skin over the front of the voice box and then squirted into the voice box. This causes a brief cough (and a bitter taste from the medication) and then numbs the lining of the voice box, which is otherwise very sensitive. After it is numb, a needle is passed through the front of the voice box and out the back. As the needle passes through the cartilage at ...

We have talked about voice before in this column in connection with slipstream, especially reader perception of voice. (1) This time were going to tackle the authors use of voice, the elements that contribute to voice and how it is created. Every work of fiction has a voice, be it the voice of the fictional first-person narrator, or the voice of the implied author-the controlling presence or authorial voice behind the characters of the story. The distinctive qualities of the authors voice are manifested by his or her method of expression (for example, an ironic narrator or a lyric persona), specific language, and so forth. So-called transparent narrative is just as much a form of voice as fiction which explicitly calls attention to its own language and plot devices-the difference is more like that between those who stand in a corner at parties observing, and those who make sure that people notice what they are up to. Voice when understood in this way has also been referred to as the ...
Singers are always looking for the magic elixir that will make their voice young and beautiful forever. Well, Ive found it - loads and loads of water!. At the risk of being obvious, keeping well hydrated seems to be the #1 vocal advice offered by gurus, voice teachers, doctors, and speech therapists. Although there is no magic number, common advice is to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. The best (and most practical) way to check if one is drinking enough water is to verify the color of ones urine: it should be pale. Also, if you drink tea, coffee, or alcohol, you need to know that these liquids may cause dehydration. It might be necessary to adjust your water intake accordingly.. Everything affects the voice, including your thoughts. The most sound strategy for vocal health is to take a holistic approach and to listen to your body without ignoring science and facts. For example, if a steaming cup of espresso makes you sing like Pavarotti, then by all means have your cup of coffee, but ...
