She experienced respiratory distress, was found to have epiglottic
swelling on radiography, and underwent emergency endoscopy.
The C-Trach epiglottic
elevator bar pushed the epiglottis upwards.
tuberculosis: differential diagnosis and treatment.
entrapment by arytenoepiglottic folds in the horse.
The role LPR plays can be obfuscated by the presence of supraglottic edema or erythema, glottic abnormalities, epiglottic
malformations, and lingual tonsillar hypertrophy, among other factors.
A gurgling or choking sound could be due to epiglottic
entrapment, a partial obstruction of the larynx.
Experimentally, the respiratory arousal threshold is measured as the nadir oesophageal pressure (or minimum epiglottic
pressure which is similar to oesophageal during airway occlusion) generated on the breath preceding arousal from a respiratory event or perturbation (106).
agenesis or nephrosclerosis, hiatus hernia, facial dysmorphia, and epiglottic
Seventy percent of patients who aspirated had a delayed epiglottic
inversion to protect the airway, and 30% of aspirators had an abnormal epiglottic
The presence of an endotracheal tube allows for the direct entry of bacteria into the lower respiratory tract, preventing the normal hose defenses which include filtration and humidification of air in the upper airway, epiglottic
and cough reflexes, and ciliary transport action (Kunis & Puntillo, 2003).
histoplasmosis presenting in a nonendemic region: a clinical mimic of laryngeal carcinoma.
Part 3 ("Physiology") concerns the principal phenomena involved in the generation of vocal sound; topics covered are the adduction of the arytenoids, tension of the vocal ligaments, progressive posterior occlusion of the glottis, chest register, falsetto register, increase and decrease in volume, the vibrating surface of the cord, movement of the vestibule of the glottis, the s uperior thyroarytenoid ligaments, the ventricles of Morgagni, and epiglottic
