Most of the epistaxis are unilateral because of the cracking of a capillary vessel in the anterior part of the nose. The hemorrhages are usually caused by the dryness of the dry air and the drying out of the covering that covers the inside of the nose.

Disphonia

DISPHONIAVOICE FORMATIONThe sequence of vibrations that a vibrating object initiates is called sound. Vibration movement is necessary for voice to occur. Vibration is the rapid movement of an object back and forth. The organs that are important in the formation of human voice at first are the larynx (larynx) and the lung; The structure which has the most important role in the production of voice is the vocal cord and it is placed in a horizontal position in our throat in such a way as to form a "V" shape. Sound is produced during the breathing. When we breathe, our voices are turned on and when we breathe, when we are going to make a sound, our voices are turned off and vibrated. The raw sound produced by the vibration of the voices creates the phase of phonation (sound production). The number of vibrations of a voice technician in a second is different in man, woman and baby. This number of vibrations is about 100-150 Hz for men and 200-250 Hz for females. The raw sound is shaped by the throat, the nose and the mouth, and the final tone is formed. Voice disturbances arise during impairments affecting the stages... ...
