Cervical auscultation is a method for assessing swallowing performance. However, its ability to serve as a classification tool for a practical clinical assessment method is not fully understood. In this study, we utilized neural network classification methods in the form of Deep Belief networks in order to classify swallows. We specifically utilized swallows that did not result in clinically significant aspiration and classified them on whether they originated from healthy subjects or unhealthy patients. Dual-axis swallowing vibrations from 1946 discrete swallows were recorded from 55 healthy and 53 unhealthy subjects...

G Postiaux, P Maffei, J-C Villiot-Danger, J-C Dubus
This article reports an exchange of unbiased arguments between Mr Guy Postiaux speaking in favour of respiratory physiotherapy in acute viral bronchiolitis in the newborn and Prof. Jean-Christoph Dubus arguing against. A review of the literature suggests that traditional methods of physiotherapy should be abandoned because they are not validated and because they have harmful side effects. The latest Cochrane revue (2016) suggests the use of slow expiration techniques that have some validated elements and cause no harmful side effects...

BACKGROUND: Laron syndrome (LS), which can be defined as primary growth hormone resistance or insensitivity, is a rare genetic disease inherited by an autosomal recessive trait. Although it is undistinguishable from growth hormone deficiency, LS has high levels of growth hormone, but insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) cannot be synthesized. Mecasermin treatment is the only option for the patients who suffer from LS. This study aims to research cardiac findings of children with LS, who receive treatment with mecasermin...

Background: Respiration monitoring is necessary during sedation for dental treatment. Recently, acoustic respiration rate (RRa™), an acoustics-based respiration monitoring method, has been used in addition to auscultation or capnography. The accuracy of this method may be compromised in an environment with excessive noise. This study evaluated whether noise from the ultrasonic scaler affects the performance of RRa in respiratory rate measurement. Methods: We analyzed data from 49 volunteers who underwent scaling under intravenous sedation...

Several studies have investigated the accuracy of cervical auscultation (CA). However, both the sensitivities and the specificities of CA in detecting dysphagic conditions varied widely among these studies. These wide variations of the accuracy of CA might be caused by differences of the targeted sounds, such as the expiratory sound (ES) and/or swallowing sound (SS). Forty-six dysphagic patients were served as subjects. Patients who had unoccluded tracheostoma and patients who could not follow the instructions were excluded...

Adverse alterations in the skeletal muscle response to exercise have been noted among adults with hypertension. The influence of resting blood pressure (BP) on muscle strength is unknown. We hypothesized that adults with high BP would exhibit lower muscular strength than adults with normal BP. An isokinetic dynamometer tested 21 measures of isometric and isokinetic muscle strength. BP was measured by auscultation. Patients were categorized into having normal (<120 and <80 mmHg) or high (≥120 and/or ≥80 mmHg) BP...

OBJECTIVE: Introduction:Changes in the cardiovascular system can be divided into 2 groups due to the connective tissue dysplasia (CTD) and changes in the circulatory system, caused by pathological processes that arose on the basis of the connective structures failure. One of the risk factors of arterial hypertension (AH) remaining insufficiently studied is collagen pathology - nondifferentiated connective tissue dysplasia (NCTD). The presence of connective tissue in all organs and systems, the common origin of smooth muscles, blood and lymph from mesenchyma leads to dysplastic changes in any organ and system...

Lung sounds convey relevant information related to pulmonary disorders, and to evaluate patients with pulmonary conditions, the physician or the doctor uses the traditional auscultation technique. However, this technique suffers from limitations. For example, if the physician is not well trained, this may lead to a wrong diagnosis. Moreover, lung sounds are non-stationary, complicating the tasks of analysis, recognition, and distinction. This is why developing automatic recognition systems can help to deal with these limitations...

OBJECTIVES: Auscultation is an important clue to the presence of aortic stenosis (AS). We sought to assess the effect of symptom status, prior knowledge of diagnosis, and other patient factors on murmur detection. METHODS: Patients with moderate-to-severe AS by echocardiography at a single center between June 2015 and June 2016 were included. Five consecutive patient encounters (inpatient and outpatient) within 12 months before the echocardiogram were analyzed. RESULTS: Ninety-five patients (418 different clinician encounters) were studied...

We report the case of an infant boy born at 39 weeks and 5 days who presented a cleft lip and palate. During the assessment to detect associated malformations, cardiac auscultation revealed a systolic heart murmur. Echocardiography and subsequent thoracic computed tomography angiography identified an aneurysm of the ductus arteriosus. Ductus arteriosus aneurysm, a complicated form of patent ductus arteriosus, may not be as rare as once considered. A clear majority of ductus arteriosus aneurysms are asymptomatic and physiologically resolve after birth...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Lung sound signals convey valuable information of the lung status. Auscultation is an effective technique to appreciate the condition of the respiratory system using lung sound signals. The prior works on asthma detection from lung sound signals rely on the presence of wheeze. In this paper, we have classified normal and asthmatic subjects using advanced signal processing of posterior lung sound signals, even in the absence of wheeze. METHODS: We collected lung sounds of 60 subjects (30 normal and 30 asthma) using a novel 4-channel data acquisition system from four different positions over the posterior chest, as suggested by the pulmonologist...
