Effects of a pressure target on laryngeal airway resistance in children.

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of an intraoral air pressure target on estimation of laryngeal airway resistance (LAR) in normal children. Ten children produced the syllable /pi/ (a) with self-determined normal loudness, (b) with increased loudness, and (c) at a predetermined intraoral air pressure level of 6.5 to 7.5 cm of water.
