81. Acoustic and Perceptual Markers of Dysarthria in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

lateral sclerosis (ALS) which involves the degeneration of both systems. ALS patients will be gathered in clinical groups according to electromyogram (EMG) and clinical signs observed in the bulbar site. UMN signs are defined as jaw clonus, gag reflex and pseudobulbar features (lability). LMN signs are defined as lingual atrophy and fasciculations. The dysarthria will be compared to dysarthria of patients involving an exclusive UMN system degeneration (in primitive lateral sclerosis) and an exclusive (...) degeneration on one side and LMN degeneration on the other side. The investigators will compare acoustic and perceptual features between the recorded speech of different clinical groups. Clinical groups will be made according to clinical signs and EMG. The clinical signs for UMN involvement in the bulbar region are: gag reflex, jaw clonus, pseudobulbar features (lability). The clinical signs for LMN involvement are: lingual atrophy and fasciculation. The population will be composed by groups of ALS-LMN

the mouthguard just after each training session or after each match. Degree of discomfort regarding the gag reflex while using the mouthguard [ Time Frame: Weeks 1-4 ] The degree of discomfort regarding the gag reflex while using the mouthguard was assessed by asking the question "How much do you think wearing the mouthguard causes a gag reflex?" using a 0-10 point scale (considering 0= Not at all to 10= very much). Players rated the mouthguard just after each training session or after each match. Degree

and the result of a SBT. Pre-defined weaning criteria included: (1) patent upper airway; (2) ability to protect airway (defined by mental status and presence of adequate gag and cough reflexes); (3) ability to clear secretions; (4) decreasing secretion burden requiring suction not more frequently than every 2 hours; (5) level of support (FiO2 < 50%, PEEP = 5); and (6) hemodynamic stability not requiring chemical (vasopressors, inotropes) or mechanical (e.g. intra-aortic balloon pump, extracorporeal life (...) . At the end of the SBT, the RSBI was re-measured and an arterial blood gas (ABG) was obtained. In the UC group, the SBT type and extubation decision was determined by the attending intensivist on service based upon neurologic status, airway competence (gag, cough, suction requirements), and negative inspiratory force (NIF) or RSBI measurements. Extubation success was defined as remaining extubated for 48 hours without need for re-intubation or other forms of non-invasive MV. Study Design Go to Layout

failure rate and its related coughing and gagging when compared with mini dose.The use of succinylcholine compared with none can facilitate LMA insertion and reduce insertion-related reflexes without significant postoperative myalgia. However, additional prospective studies with a larger sample size are required to fully evaluate the dose-dependent effect and complications of succinylcholine for LMA insertion.© Article author(s) (or their employer(s) unless otherwise stated in the text of the article (...) that succinylcholine reduced the first-attempt LMA insertion failure rate (RR, 0.22; 95% CI 0.12 to 0.43), coughing and gagging (RR, 0.26; 95% CI 0.15 to 0.45) and laryngospasm (RR, 0.14; 95% CI 0.05 to 0.39). The use of succinylcholine did not result in a significant increase of postoperative myalgia (RR, 2.58; 95% CI 0.79 to 8.44) and did not reduce the risk of postoperative sore throat (RR, 0.76; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.03).

We compared the number of pharyngeal observable sites (non-inferiority test), pain by visual analogue scale, observation time, and the number of gag reflexes between the two groups. Results The mean number of images of suitable quality taken at the observable pharyngeal sites in the spray group was 8.33 (95 % confidence interval [CI]: 7.94 - 8.72) per patient, and 8.77 (95 % CI: 8.49 - 9.05) per patient in the combination group. The difference (...) in the number of observable pharyngeal sites was - 0.44 (95 % CI: - 0.84 to - 0.03, P = 0.01). There were no differences in pain, observation time, or number of gag reflexes between the 2 groups. Subgroup analysis of the presence of sedation revealed no differences between the two groups for the number of pharyngeal observation sites and the number of gag reflexes. However, the number of gag reflexes was higher in the spray group compared to the combination group in a subgroup analysis that looked
