Vocal cords Hemorrhage
Hemorrhage is an internal bleeding. It happens when a blood vessel is broken, letting the blood flow out of it.
Most important: when you suspect a vocal cords hemorrhage, you must have a vocal rest. In such a case, you must have an ENT doctor’s diagnosis. Once you find out you have a vocal cords hemorrhage, you must have a vocal rest, and, if possible, keep silent for several days.
Causes of vocal cords hemorrhage:
Vocal cord hemorrhage is the result of vocal cords trauma or damage, due to excessive vocal effort such as:
- Loud coughing,
- Loud laughter,
- Loud singing, etc.
Vocal cords hemorrhage treatment:
- The main treatment is vocal rest, in order to prevent vocal cords nodules or polyps, as ENT doctors usually recommend.
TMRG’s vocal cords hemorrhage treatment:
- In Addition to silence (if ordered by your ENT doctor), undergo 3 inhalations a day using the TPV device, for 10 minutes at a time.
- After the inhalation, drink a TMRG Voice Powder solution. This will make you feel your cords are coated, and minimize their friction. It will also protect your cords against acid and phlegm effects.
- After your ENT doctor reexamines your cords, and allows it,
start speaking again. Now, you must exercise breathing out, too, through the TPV device.
You must carry out the treatment thoroughly, in order to avoid harming your cords make them fully recover.
Exercising with a TPV device is the best way of making your vocal cords flexible. In such a case, do the following:
- Exercise as gently as possible, making ascending and descending tones.
- Most importantly: practice using the vocal areas where you can make sounds easily, without pressing or forcing your vocal cords.
- Start with narrow tone ranges, expanding them gradually when you feel improvement.
- Focus on the lower parts of your vocal range.
Most importantly: resume your normal vocal routine gradually only, in order to avoid harming your cords.
In addition, you must follow vocal hygiene rules and quit harmful routines, if necessary:
- Make sure to have a sufficient amount of sleep.
- Have a vocal rest during the day.
- Have a sufficient amount of drinking.
- Speak or sing at the appropriate tone and at a moderate vocal intensity, slowly, easily and effortlessly.
- We recommend consulting a speech therapist, in order to avoid recurrent similar problems. If you are a singer, consult your vocal coach, in order to correct your vocal technique.
Good luck and stay tuned,
