  1. pmc Vocal exercise may attenuate acute vocal fold inflammation
    Katherine Verdolini Abbott
    Department of Communication Science and Disorders, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
    J Voice 26:814.e1-13. 2012
    ..The hypothesis was that relatively large-amplitude, low-impact vocal fold exercises associated with RV would reduce inflammation more than spontaneous speech (SS) and possibly more than voice rest...

    Katherine Verdolini
    School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA
    J Speech Lang Hear Res 45:268-81. 2002
    ..In contrast, no evidence was seen that DH accomplished either secretory dehydration or PTP shifts. The results indicate that systemic dehydration can mediate PTP increases. The influence of secretory dehydration on PTP is unclear...
