Surface electromyographic (sEMG) studies were performed on 300 normal adults to estimate normal values of sEMG records of muscle activity in the detection and evaluation of stages of normal swallowing. Our study was a prospective observational study of healthy volunteers. The parameters evaluated during swallowing include the timing, amplitude (voltage),(More)
OBJECTIVE Surface electromyographic studies were performed on 440 normal adults to describe and evaluate different types of normal swallows clinically useful for ENT department. Study design Prospective observational study of healthy volunteers. METHODS EMG recordings were made using stick-on surface electrodes. Rectified and filtered EMG signals were(More)
OBJECTIVE Surface electromyographic studies were performed on 440 normal adults to establish normative database for duration of muscle activity during swallowing and drinking clinically useful for outpatient ENT department. STUDY DESIGN Prospective observational study of healthy volunteers. METHODS Parameters evaluated during swallowing include the(More)
OBJECTIVES To give a description of normal surface electromyography (sEMG) aspects of uninterrupted (continuous) drinking and to establish normal sEMG values for swallowing 100 mL of water. STUDY DESIGN Prospective observational study of healthy volunteers. SUBJECTS Four hundred twenty apparently healthy male and female volunteers divided into three age(More)
BACKGROUND In this prospective randomized double-blind study, we compared the incidence of emesis and 48-h recovery profiles after a single dose of ketorolac vs fentanyl in dexamethasone-pretreated children undergoing ambulatory adenoidectomy and laser-assisted tonsillectomy (ADLAT). We evaluated the hypothesis that avoiding the use of opioids and replacing(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this paper is to describe the outcome of biofeedback training of nasal muscles in cases of nasal valve stenosis and collapse. The present study was performed to investigate the best way of using surface electromyography (sEMG) in biofeedback training of muscles involved in nasal valve function. In the present study, we present the(More)
The natural history of individuals with acute acoustic trauma who ceased to be exposed to impact noise was examined. Retrospective follow-up was carried out for 4 years on patients who were qualified as disabled following acoustic trauma with permanent threshold shift. Eight hundred forty-one individuals (1682 ears) were examined, of which 1514 ears with(More)
Operations like septoplasty, rhinoplasty, nasal septal reconstruction and conchotomy may produce bleeding and postoperative hematoma. Two hundred four patients undergoing septoplasty and conchotomy operations were entered into a prospective study. Patients were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups: Group I, septoplasty + conchotomy + nasal(More)
