Body Talk - 13th April 2010

My guest this evening was Mr Maged Abdelkader, Consultant Ear Nose and Throat Surgeon at Spire Hartswood Hospital. He was talking about problems that occur with the voice and swallowing in both adults and children, and how these problems are managed and treated.

One of the main and most common problems that affect the voice is the common cold. That is farly easy to recognise and we can usually deal with that without too much trouble. It is when the problem is continual that you need to seek professional help.

The vocal chords are muscles that need to be exercised and any form of sining or chanting can help to keep them in good form. When they become swollen through infection or virus then they need to be treated with more care. A good supply of saliva is also necessary to keep them in good order. treatment may be necesary if the salivary glands start to fail or stop altogether. Saliva is necesary not just for the vocal chords but is also vital for our digestion.

For all throat problems, first consult your gp, you could then be referred to a top consultant such as Mr Abdelkader at Spire Hartswood.
