  • Voice Evaluation Report

    The patient struggled with this task and instead produced normal phonation rather than glottal fry. Inhalation Phonation (10:37) This speech task required the patient to produce phonation on the inhalation. This task assesses the ability of the true vocal folds without the involvement of any supraglottal activity. The patient had difficulty with this task and phonated on the exhalation rather than the inhalation. Laryngeal Massage (10:56) This speech task involved the clinician performing a laryngeal neck massage as they elicited phrases from the patient such as, “Who did it?” and sustained /m/. The patient noted feeling a difference in the quality of production after the laryngeal massage. Tongue Protrusion (11:30) This speech task involved protruding the tongue and simultaneously producing the word “me” repeatedly. This task opens up the back of the throat. Perceptually, the patient’s speech was produced more clearly and with less effort after this speech task. Nasal and Glide Stimulation…

  • Explain Myoelastic Aerodynamic Theory

    I will now describe the myoelastic-aerodynamic theory using the following diagram. Diagram A starts on the exhalation phase and the vocal folds are in phonatory position. The vocal folds are contracted by the Interarytenoids and the Lateral cricoid arytenoids. These muscles (IA and LCA) put the vocal folds in the phonotory position to initiate the vibratory cycle. Medial compression is the force exerted by the IA and LCA. The LCA and IA remain contracted throughout phonation when in the…

  • Parkinson's Disease: A Case Study Summary

    The first three recordings were collected two weeks before the start of the treatment period. Two more recording were made at the completion of the treatment groups treatment period and the final two recording were collected at a six-month post-treatment follow-up. All of the recordings were collected in a sound-treated room. The recordings were of four performed tasks: continual vowel phonation on the “ah” sound as long as possible repeated six times, reading of the “rainbow passage”, a…

  • Strained Voice

    Strained Voice (Vocal Cords) Overview- We rely on our voices to inform, persuade, and interact with other people. For this, a disorder of phonation may prove very limiting, interfering with the ability to communicate with normal daily activities. “Dysphonia " is the medical term used for Strained Voice to indicate a generic voice alteration, qualitative or quantitative, temporary or permanent, structural or functional origin of one or more organs involved in the spoken speech. This alteration…

  • Personal Narrative: Human Papilloma Virus

    There has been many challenges that I have had to face during my life, yet none of those challenges compare to the one I have and am still facing. When I was about two years old my mother had noticed that whenever I cried my voice didn’t sound like any other toddler. Instead it sounded more like a whisper with some raspiness to it. She decided to take me to the hospital and there they informed her that I had a virus. These virus is named Human Papilloma Virus which is incurable. The virus has a…

  • Vocal Hydration Research Paper

    perturbation in vocal fold vibration such as reduced jitter and shimmer (Franca, 2006). Vocal jitter is defined as variation of the frequency (number of cycles or events per unit) of successive vocal folds cycles, whereas vocal shimmer is defined as short-term (cycle-to cycle) variability in vocal fold vibration amplitude (Titze, 1994). Jitter and shimmer are indicators of vocal fold vibration perturbation that draw a parallel with perceptual indications of voice quality (Martens, Versnel, &…

  • Substitution Errors

    It was found that children “initiate phonation at too low a level of vital capacity and also that they produce a reduced number of syllables per breath. The second problem is that they mismanage the volume of air by inappropriate valving at the laryngeal level” (Osberger and McGarr, 1982). Inappropriate laryngeal gestures made it difficult to differentiate between voice and voiceless cognates (such as p,b). Furthermore, high speech laryngeal films have also provided “evidence of abnormal…

  • Nervous System In The Human Body

    medial compression at the midline so air cannot escape. The thyoarytenoid makes up the majority of the vocal folds. The stylohyoid contraction at mandible will draw the hyoid up and down. With the tongue, positioning is helped by the hyoglossus in the phonotory system. Phonation is initiated as air pressure below the glottis overcomes medial compression, now the vocal folds are…

  • Mr. Williams Integrative Case Study

    This nerve plays an extremely important role in many functions however the most important is swallowing and phonation. The vagus nerve has many branches which goes to many different organs of the body. The vagus has 3 main branches, the pharyngeal, superior laryngeal, and recurrent laryngeal nerves. That are very important to phonation. The pharyngeal nerve innervates muscles of the soft palate and the pharynx. The superior laryngeal and the recurrent laryngeal nerves carry nerve impulses to the…
