The viscosity of the surface mucus of the vocal cords is one of the important elements for good laryngeal functioning. It has been demonstrated that inhalation of hydrated air increases the phonatory threshold pressure by decreasing viscosity of the mucus (1) leading to a more regular vibration that can be appreciated by jitter (2). In an attempt to correlate the concepts of tissue viscosity and surface mucus considering the theoretical model of vibration we measured the phonatory threshold… CONTINUE READING
