  2. 2. Collision Threshold Pressure : A novel measure of voice function Effects of vocal warm-up, vocal loading and resonance tube phonation in water

    Author : Laura Enflo; Anita McAllister; Johan Sundberg; Marc de Bodt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The phonation threshold pressure (PTP), i.e., the smallest amount of subglottal pressure needed to initiate and sustain vocal fold oscillation, is frequently difficult to measure due to the difficulty for some subjects to produce extremely soft phonation. In addition, PTP values are often quite scattered. READ MORE
