Dysarthria and Quality of Life in neurologically healthy elderly and patients with Parkinson's disease

Abstract: The degree of modification of speech and voice of patients with PD resembles those seen in normal aging process, with the exception of prosody and the habitual frequency, which are related to the greatest negative impact on the QoL of patients with PD.

“…Another study suggested that the difficulties of the listener to understand the speech of the subject with ALS and the unavoidable repetitions, decrease the communication rate of these individuals 7 . These difficulties have been also described in other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease 6 . The individual's perception of their own illness and communication difficulties were frequently self-reported by the participants in this study, as in the statements: "I worry about my speech difficulties" and "I think my speech can change".…”

“…These changes, together with the loss of functional independence caused by ALS, lead to an extremely discouraging situation for the individual 5 . Studies reaffirm that quality of life is largely affected by the presence of dysarthria caused by various underlying diseases 6,7 . The decline in functional capacity coupled with the relatively preserved cognitive capacity observed in subjects with ALS are considered the primary problems to be addressed.…”

“…We observed increased cell death and expression of apoptotic regulator proteins in all muscles of the extrinsic tongue with age, a reduction in muscle fiber number in the GG and SG, and higher variability of myofiber size in the SG muscle. The results are indicative of an underlying cellular mechanism that may contribute to age‐related lingual muscle degeneration, and, if also found in humans, may be associated with the development of oromotor decline evidenced in elderly people …”

“…In the area of phonation, insufficient breath support, reduction in phonation time, increased acoustic noise, instability of articulatory organs, microperturbations of frequency/amplitude, and harsh breathy voice quality has been observed [9,12]. HD leads to serious complications in daily communication of patients with PD [13]. Generally, HD was found to be more severe in the advanced stages of PD [14].…”
