The impact of anatomic manipulations on pharyngeal collapse: results from a computational model of the normal human upper airway

, : The impact of anatomic manipulations on pharyngeal collapse: results from a computational model of the normal human upper airway. Chest 128(3): 1324-1330

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disease with important neurocognitive and cardiovascular sequelae. Existing therapies are unsatisfactory, leading investigators to seek alternative forms of anatomic manipulation to influence pharyngeal mechanics.

Background: In persons without clinical symptom it is difficult to assess an impact of probiotics regarding its effect on health. We evaluated the functional efficacy of the probiotic Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3 in healthy volunteers by measuring...
