Eagle (Arch Otolaryngol. 1937;25:584 and Arch Otolaryngol. 1949;49:490) first identified elongation of the styloid process and ossification of the stylohyoid ligament as a cause of orofacial pain. The elongated styloid process presses on the internal carotid artery and adjacent structures, including branches of the glossopharyngeal nerve and this produce orofacial pain. Some authors define an elongated styloid process as longer than 4 cm because this length is associated with an increase in the incidence of Eagle's syndrome...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the hearing problems and tinnitus frequencies in adolescents at three public primary and two high schools. METHODS: This study was carried out at three public primary and two high schools. 428 Turkish school children (244 girls, 184 boys) were asked to voluntarily answer a set of questionnaires in their classrooms at the beginning of the training program. There were 250 students (105 male, 145 female) in Primary School and 178 (79 male, 99 female) students in High School...

This study assessed whether an intervention approach relying on auditory prompting delivered automatically through a portable device was effective to reduce tongue protrusion in a woman with severe to profound mental retardation. The device involved (a) an optic sensor, i.e., a miniphotocell kept under the lower lip with medical tape, (b) a small signal transmission box, and (c) a Walkman for presenting the prompts. Initially, the automatic prompting condition was combined with occasional praise from a research assistant for having the tongue in the mouth...

High levels of noise encountered both in leisure activities and at workplaces can be somewhat annoying, but they can also cause hearing damage. In order to lessen these risks, some physical characteristics of the sound phenomenon need to be understood. The level of a sound is given in dB, a logarithmic unit in which simple addition is not available : 100 dB + 100 dB = 103 dB. The highest level of noise which can be tolerated by the human ear is considered to be 120 dB. Another component of sound characteristics is the frequency, which describes the height of a sound...

Many executives take for granted that the first company in a new product category gets an unbeatable head start and reaps long-lasting benefits. But that doesn't always happen. The authors of this article discovered that much depends on the pace at which the category's technology is changing and the speed at which the market is evolving. By analyzing these two factors, companies can improve their odds of succeeding as first movers with the resources they possess. Gradual evolution in both the technology and the market provides a first mover with the best conditions for creating a dominant position that is long lasting (Hoover in the vacuum cleaner industry is a good example)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the feasibility of distractive auditory stimuli (DAS) used during an upper extremity training (UET) program on perceived dyspnea, functional performance, and health-related quality of life. In addition, to determine the appropriate music tempo used during the UET. DESIGN: Experimental, randomized, 3-group design with testing at baseline and 4 weeks. SETTING: Outpatient. PATIENTS: Thirty patients (13 male and 17 female) with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (FEV1 41...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy of a new device, which slows and regularises breathing, as a non-pharmacological treatment of hypertension and thus to evaluate the contribution of breathing modulation in the blood pressure (BP) reduction. DESIGN AND SETTING: Randomised, double-blind controlled study, carried out in three urban family practice clinics in Israel. PATIENTS: Sixty-five male and female hypertensives, either receiving antihypertensive drug therapy or unmedicated...

We hypothesise that routinely applied short sessions of slow and regular breathing can lower blood pressure (BP). Using a new technology BIM (Breathe with Interactive Music), hypertensive patients were guided towards slow and regular breathing. The present study evaluates the efficacy of the BIM in lowering BP. We studied 33 patients (23M/10F), aged 25-75 years, with uncontrolled BP. Patients were randomised into either active treatment with the BIM (n = 18) or a control treatment with a Walkman (n = 15). Treatment at home included either musically-guided breathing exercises with the BIM or listening to quiet music played by a Walkman for 10 min daily for 8 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation (FNS) for unbraced short-distance ambulation by traumatic complete/near-complete T4 to T12 paraplegics is based on work by Graupe et al (1982), Kralj et al (1980), Liberson et al (1961), and others. This paper discusses methodology, performance, training, admissibility criteria, and medical observations for FNS-ambulation using the Parastep-I system, which is the first and only such system to have received FDA approval (1994) and which emanated from these previous works...

Mucositis remains an important problem following BMT and may delay discharge from hospital. Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) systems have been reported to be of benefit in controlling BMT-associated mucositis. The present study comprised 65 patients (age range 16-68 years; 19 allografts, 29 peripheral blood stem cell autografts and 17 autologous bone marrow). Subjects were prospectively randomised to receive intravenous diamorphine for pain relief either by conventional continuous infusion (CI) or by PCA, using a Medex Walkman 440 delivery system...

During an one-hour lecture 277 pupils between 16 and 25 years of age, were questioned about their hearing behaviour and instructed in the consequences of hearing impairment resulting from listening to loud music. Furthermore audiometrics were offered and there was possibility to measure the loudness of the walkman used. A majority visited "discos" and/or used walkman. Over 80% claimed their hearing is good, over 75% knew that loud music can cause damage to hearing. The walkman users suffered more frequently from tinnitus and failed to hear a door bell more often...

Language is often explained as the product of generative rules and a memorized lexicon. For example, most English verbs take a regular past tense suffix (ask-asked), which is applied to new verbs (faxed, wugged), suggesting the mental rule "add -ed to a Verb." Irregular verbs (break-broke, go-went) would be listed in memory. Alternatively, a pattern associator memory (such as a connectionist network) might record all past tense forms and generalize to new ones by similarity; irregular and regular patterns would differ only because of their different numbers of verbs...

The sedating effect and influence of walkman music on 120 patients, that were randomly divided into a music and non-music group, who had received epidural anesthesia were investigated. It was found that significantly fewer patients in the music group felt anxious during surgery (P = 0.049). Meanwhile, heart rate and mean arterial pressure of the non-music group remained at a higher level, resulting in higher heart loading. Furthermore, patients listening to music had a significantly smaller need of sedatives (P = 0...

Recently, there has been an increasing number of reports concerning hearing impairment which musical loud sound is thought to be one of the causes. We are getting more of this musical loud sound as cassette tape recorders with head phones such as Walkman and so forth get popular as well as occasions to attending rock concerts and going to discotheques increase. This hearing impairment is generally called discotheque deafness and the following three types are considered; 1) deafness which have fixed by accumulation of loud sound over a long period of time as seen in people involved in musical performance such as rock musicians and mixing engineers; 2) abrupt noise induced hearing impairment triggered by loud sound and 3) state of deafness which is a progressing stage towards recovery of noise induced temporary threshold shift (NITTS), which occurs temporarily by a loud sound stimulus, and hearing ability recovers afterward...

The Walkman mini-stereo system was tried on 50 patients who had tinnitus and 86.7 per cent of the patients found it effective and useful. In spite of the few minor disadvantages, its use is recommended, at least before prescribing an expensive tinnitus masker.
