- It is possible that the ‘breath holding’ episodes the child exhibited previously were in fact intermittent and momentary obstruction of the glottis by the tonsil.
- Interestingly, Valsalva maneuvers against pinched nostrils and closed glottis did, however, produce upward deflection of the eyes.
- Then the blunt wire was introduced inside the trachea when the glottis was open.
- The extrinsic muscles of the larynx control the degree of tension on the vocal cords, and the intrinsic muscles regulate the glottis.
- The Valsava response occurs when air is forced against a closed glottis (the narrowest part of the larynx, through which air passes into and out of the trachea).
- The glottis suddenly closes and stops the inflow of air resulting in the sound of a hiccup.
- The closed shutter maneuver was performed with the subject's glottis open and the cheeks held firmly with his hands.
- In bulbar patients, a nonfunctioning glottis can cause an uncomfortable choking sensation, making mouth pressure measurements difficult.
- Cough, pronounced coff, is onomatopoeic in origin, from the sound of the closure of the glottis plus the sound of air whizzing or wheezing through the trachea.
- Hiccups in dogs, just as in people, are caused when a spasm of the muscular diaphragm creates a sudden inhalation followed by a closure of the glottis.
- To speak Carrier you have to get in touch with your glottis.
- The diagnosis is definitively established by visualization of the glottis when the patient is symptomatic.
- During the compressive phase, the glottis is closed and the expiratory muscles start to contract.
- Pass the deflated cuff along the right side of the blade through the visualized glottis.
- Now one of the alternative pronunciations of which really does involve ‘an aspirating H sound’, that is, noise generated by turbulent flow of air through the glottis.
