During a 2-year period, 17 patients with "functional dysphonia" were assessed and managed in a hospital setting. A single treatment approach, known as manual laryngeal musculoskeletal tension reduction, was employed. The effects of the therapy regimen were analyzed using perceptual and acoustical measures of vocal function. The results indicated a(More)
Genetic parameters of litter traits and their relationships with farrowing kinetics traits were estimated in a Large White population to examine the impact of selection for litter size on perinatal mortality and one of its main determinants, farrowing kinetics. Data were collected on 2,947 farrowings from 1,267 sows between 1996 and 2004. Litter traits(More)
Sleep deprivation can induce or worsen nocturnal respiratory disturbances. In patients with sleep apnea hypopnea, sleep abnormalities consist of repetitive episodes of arousals and awakenings that lead to sleep fragmentation. Because the propensity for upper airway collapse is increased in these patients, we wondered if sleep fragmentation could increase(More)
Although dysphonia following long-term endotracheal intubation (EI) is a common complication, no cases of ventricular dysphonia have been reported. This investigation reports a case of persistent ventricular dysphonia following a 12-day intubation period. The patient received eight sessions of voice therapy employing the manual, laryngeal musculoskeletal(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if color flow duplex scanning (CFDS) can be used for rapid confirmation of presumed brain death. DESIGN Pilot cohort study comparison of CFDS with radionuclide cerebral scanning (RCS) as the criterion standard. SETTING Community-based level I trauma center intensive care unit. PATIENTS Twenty-four patients who satisfied criteria(More)
Introduction: Malunion remains one of the most common complications after conservative treatment of extra-articular distal radius fractures. Many different methods have been proposed for correction of such malunions; however, precise correction of a symptomatic malunion requires simultaneous correction of displacement, angulation, and rotation in multiple(More)
