Increase in translaryngeal resistance during phonation in rheumatoid arthritis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Laryngeal involvement by RA is a common finding, but there have been no studies of laryngeal function in RA patients. This study was undertaken to determine if patients with rheumatoid arthritis have functional abnormalities of the upper airway during phonation which may be the result of synovitis of the laryngeal joints caused by RA. Translaryngeal resistance was measured in six patients with RA and six matched control subjects using an interrupter method to measure PSG and V̇ during vocalization. Patients with RA had a higher R (65.0 ± 8.15 cm H2O/L/s) than control subjects (38.4 ± 7.43 cm H2O/L/s [p
