FREE LIVE Educational Event – Dr. Adam Lloyd, SLP-D, CCC-SLP, MM
Aspire Respiratory Products is pleased to host the third in a series of free speaker events offered to health-focused professionals in 2021. The series brings experts together to share and discuss important health and physical wellbeing topics. This third event, “Occupational and Professional Voice Demand: The role of the respiratory muscles.” will be presented by voice expert and professor Dr. Adam Lloyd.
Event Overview: This 30-minute presentation will review the use of expiratory muscle strength training as a supplement to traditional voice therapy for professional voice users. The distinct types of professional voice users will be covered as well as how respiratory muscle strength training and generalized breathing training programs improve the maximum expiratory pressure, acoustic and aerodynamic measures of voice. This presentation will cover the most susceptible populations for vocal fold pathology, such as vocal fold nodules, hematomas, and laryngitis so that occupational voice hazards do not occur and adverse effects of professional voice users’ careers can be avoided.
