World Voice Day is April 16th. In recognition of World Voice Day here are a few helpful tips from the Otolaryngology arena.
Our voice box or larynx is made of several different parts including our vocal cords. To keep the vocal cords healthy remember to do the following:
1. Avoid shouting and screaming for long periods of time
2. Drink one liter of water per day
3. For people living in colder climates, run a humidifier in your bedroom to moisturize your nasal and throat passages
4. If you experience hoarseness that lasts for over 7 days, come and see an Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor). We will place a lighted tube in your nose to directly visualize your voice box.
Happy World Voice Day!
