PURPOSE: This study aimed to verify the immediate effect of low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and laryngeal manual therapy (LMT) in musculoskeletal pain, voice quality, and self-reported signs in women with dysphonia. METHOD: Thirty women with behavioral dysphonia were randomly divided into the TENS group and the LMT group. All participants fulfilled the pain survey and had their voices recorded to posterior perceptual and acoustic analysis before and after intervention...

Matthew Hoch, Mary J Sandage
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESES: Principles from exercise science literature were applied to singing warm-up pedagogy as a method for examining parallels between athletic and voice training. Analysis of the use of exercise principles in vocal warm-up should illuminate aspects of voice training that may be further developed in the future. METHODS/DESIGN: A selected canon of standard voice pedagogy texts and well-regarded warm-up methods were evaluated for use of exercise science principles for skill acquisition and fatigue resistance...

STUDY DESIGN: This is a populational retrospective study. PARTICIPANTS: The spontaneous crying of 17 healthy infants (10 were male) was retrospectively investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sound files of spontaneously uttered cries that were repeatedly recorded once per week for across the first 10 weeks of life were retrospectively analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: In vocally healthy children and adults, speaking voice loudness differences can significantly confound acoustic perturbation measurements. This study examines the effects of voice sound pressure level (SPL) on jitter, shimmer, and harmonics-to-noise ratio (HNR) in adults with voice disorders and a control group with normal vocal status. STUDY DESIGN: This is a matched case-control study. METHODS: We assessed 58 adult female voice patients matched according to approximate age and occupation with 58 vocally healthy women...

OBJECTIVES: Resonance tube phonation with tube end in water is a voice therapy method in which the patient phonates through a glass tube, keeping the free end of the tube submerged in water, creating bubbles. The purpose of this experimental study was to determine flow-pressure relationship, flow thresholds between bubble types, and bubble frequency as a function of flow and back volume. METHODS: A flow-driven vocal tract simulator was used for recording the back pressure produced by resonance tubes with inner diameters of 8 and 9 mm submerged at water depths of 0-7 cm...

OBJECTIVES: This study compared whispering attempts by adults using tracheoesophageal (TE) speech with those by adults with a larynx. Comparisons were based on listener judgments, visual-perceptual assessment of spectrograms, and measures of the acoustic signal. STUDY DESIGN: This was a prospective, cross-sectional study. METHODS: Seventeen TE and 10 laryngeal speakers produced sentences in a whisper and in their spoken voice. Listeners judged sentences as whispered or spoken...

OBJECTIVES: The voice range profile (VRP) measures vocal intensity and fundamental frequency. Phonosurgical and logopedic treatment outcome studies using the VRP report voice improvements of 3-6 semitones (ST) in ST range and 4-7 decibels (dB) in sound pressure level range after treatment. These small improvements stress the importance of reliable measurements. The aim was to evaluate the test-retest reliability of the dual-microphone computerized VRP on participants with healthy voices...

OBJECTIVES: In the present study, the register phenomenon and spectral characteristics of vocal styles used by vocal performers in a Muslim community were investigated. METHODS: Electroglottography was performed on 17 subjects, whereas spectrography was performed on 18 subjects, and 16 of these subjects participated in both parts of the study. RESULTS: We observed that the participants used chest register in voice production and there was no change in this situation related to the increase in frequency...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to develop a Turkish reading passage that can be used in evaluating the frequency of hard glottal attack (HGA) and to assess its reliability. STUDY DESIGN: This is a prospective case-control study. METHODS: The Towne-Heuer reading passage is a valuable tool that can be used for the auditory-perceptual assessment of voice. The characteristics of the first four paragraphs of the reading passage were analyzed by a linguist...

Intraglottal pressure is the driving force of vocal fold vibration. Theoretically, simultaneous quantification of glottal area and transglottal airflow allows the calculation of the intraglottal pressure waveform during a single vibration cycle. In this study, we show that, by combining photoglottography (transglottal light transmission) and airflow (Rothenberg mask) measurements during sustained vocal emissions in vivo, the intraglottal pressure wave can be approximated in a way similar to what has been done in models...

This article combines results from three earlier investigations of the glottal voice source during phonation at varying degrees of vocal loudness (1) in five classically trained baritone singers (Sundberg et al., 1999), (2) in 15 female and 14 male untrained voices (Sundberg et al., 2005), and (3) in voices rated as hyperfunctional by an expert panel (Millgård et al., 2015). Voice source data were obtained by inverse filtering. Associated subglottal pressures were estimated from oral pressure during the occlusion for the consonant /p/...

OBJECTIVES: The study aimed to describe the average response of 22 female teachers to vocal fatigue during a workday, to examine their inter- and intra-subject variability, and to establish a typology of different responses to vocal fatigue. METHODS: Fundamental frequency (F0), harmonics-to-noise ratio (HNR), jitter, and shimmer were measured for each participant on sustained vowels at the beginning and at the end of the workday, on three different times of the school year...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this investigation was to assess the effects of three warm-up procedures (vocal-only, physical-only, physical/vocal combination) on acoustic and perceptual measures of choir sound. METHODS: The researchers tested three videotaped, 5-minute, choral warm-up procedures on three university choirs. After participating in a warm-up procedure, each choir was recorded singing a folk song for long-term average spectra and pitch analysis. Singer participants responded to a questionnaire about preferences after each warm-up procedure...

Narin Nard Carmel-Neiderman, Ilana Kaplan, Yael Oestreicher-Kedem
Mucous membranous pemphigoid (MMP) is an autoimmune disease of the mucous membranes characterized by formation of subepithelial blisters. MMP commonly involves the ocular and oral mucosa. Laryngeal MMP is very rare, estimated as occurring in 1 of 10 million persons in the general population. It mostly affects the supraglottis, but may also involve other laryngeal sites as well as extralaryngeal areas. This report describes the clinical picture, workup to diagnosis, and differential diagnosis of an isolated epiglottic process in an elderly female who presented with isolated, long-standing, nonresolving epiglottitis, later diagnosed as MMP with epiglottal and oral involvement...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the degree of apoptosis and its role in the pathogenesis of polyps of the vocal folds. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A review of the pathology department's archives for patients diagnosed with vocal fold polyps between 2010 and 2016 has been conducted. As a control group, gross and microscopically intact vocal fold from laryngectomy specimens was collected. A total of 61 vocal fold polyps from 51 patients and 41 unremarkable vocal folds from the control group were identified...

OBJECTIVE: Several studies have explored the role of music and singing as a treatment for respiratory symptoms. The objective of this paper was to review the current body of literature in regard to the use of singing as both a physiological and a psychological therapy for respiratory disease and assess the role the singing teacher might play in this treatment. STUDY DESIGN: This is a literature review, discussion of results and directions for further research. METHOD: Multiple databases were searched using keywords such as "respiratory," "physiotherapy," and "pulmonary" in conjunction with "singing...

OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: Talking is a significant trigger for cough in patients with chronic cough; however, the stimulus required to trigger cough has not been quantified. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of a vocal loading task on phonation and cough behavior in patients with chronic cough and identify change following therapy. STUDY DESIGN: This is a prospective observational study. METHODS: This study involved 33 patients with chronic cough...
