Laryngomalacia is the most common laryngeal anomaly and is commonly associated with stridor in children, but the recurrent respiratory and/or feeding difficulties associated with this condition may po...
Laryngomalacia is the most common congenital laryngeal anomaly. Because of supraglottic prolapse, laryngomalacia may be associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and sleep disturbances. The effect...
To describe the prevalence of aspiration in children with unilateral vocal fold paralysis who underwent objective assessment of swallow function.
The prevalence of Parkinson's disease (PD) increases as the population ages. Dysphagia and subsequent aspiration pneumonia are common causes of morbidity and mortality in those with PD. To maximize th...
Active contraction of the diaphragm and other inspiratory pump muscles during swallow create a negative thoracic pressure to improve the movement of the bolus (food/liquid) into the esophagus. We test...
The purpose of this study is to expose some of the factors that may be associated or predisposing to development of laryngomalacia.
Laryngomalacia is the most common congenital laryngeal anomaly and the most frequent cause of stridor in infants and children. Symptoms usually appear within the first 2 weeks of life. Its...
This study will investigate whether silent aspiration during swallowing can reliably be detected using acoustic signal processing plus pulse oximetry.
Treatment of exercise-induced laryngomalacia (an obstruction of larynx during physical activity) in elite athletes using two different treatments. The study is randomized with control grou...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Yale Swallow Protocol is an effective screen for aspiration in recently extubated patients.
A type of lung inflammation resulting from the aspiration of food, liquid, or gastric contents into the upper RESPIRATORY TRACT.
Breathing in liquid or solids, such as stomach contents, into the RESPIRATORY TRACT. When this causes severe lung damage, it is called ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
Botanically, a type of single-seeded fruit in which the pericarp enclosing the seed is a hard woody shell. In common usage the term is used loosely for any hard, oil-rich kernel. Of those commonly eaten, only hazel, filbert, and chestnut are strictly nuts. Walnuts, pecans, almonds, and coconuts are really drupes. Brazil nuts, pistachios, macadamias, and cashews are really seeds with a hard shell derived from the testa rather than the pericarp.
A condition caused by inhalation of MECONIUM into the LUNG of FETUS or NEWBORN, usually due to vigorous respiratory movements during difficult PARTURITION or respiratory system abnormalities. Meconium aspirate may block small airways leading to difficulties in PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE and ASPIRATION PNEUMONIA.
Hard, amorphous, brittle, inorganic, usually transparent, polymerous silicate of basic oxides, usually potassium or sodium. It is used in the form of hard sheets, vessels, tubing, fibers, ceramics, beads, etc.
