      Hammer, Stian; Toussaint, Michel; Vollsæter, Maria; Tvedt, Marianne Nesbjørg; Røksund, Ola Drange; Reychler, Gregory; Lund, Hans; Andersen, Tiina Maarit (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Objective: To evaluate the effects and safety of exercise training, and to determine the most effective exercise intervention for people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Exercise training was compared with no training, ...
    • Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction in athletes treated with inspiratory muscle training 

      Sandnes, Astrid; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad; Hilland, Magnus; Vollsæter, Maria; Heimdal, John-Helge; Eide, Geir Egil; Halvorsen, Thomas; Røksund, Ola Drange (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-01-18)
      Background Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is common in athletes and presents with dyspnoea, chest tightness, inspiratory stridor and sometimes panic reactions. The evidence for conservative treatment is weak, ...
    • Exercise-induced Laryngeal Obstruction: Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Treatment Trial 

      Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad; Røksund, Ola Drange; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Heimdal, John-Helge; Karlsen, Tom; Hilland, Magnus; Fretheim-Kelly, Zoe; Hufthammer, Karl Ove; Sandnes, Astrid; Hjelle, Sigrun Margrethe; Vollsæter, Maria; Halvorsen, Thomas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Background: Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is a common cause of exertional breathing problems in young individuals, caused by paradoxical inspiratory adduction of laryngeal structures, and diagnosed by ...
    • Laryngeal response patterns during mechanically assisted cough in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 

      Andersen, Tiina Maarit (Doctoral thesis, 2018-06-21)
      Background: Patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are treated with mechanical cough assist devices using the technique of mechanical insufflationexsufflation (MI-E) in order to improve cough and enhance clearance ...
    • Laryngeal response patterns influence the efficacy of mechanical assisted cough in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis 

      Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Sandnes, Astrid; Brekka, Anne Kristine; Hilland, Magnus; Clemm, Hege; Fondenes, Ove; Tysnes, Ole Bjørn; Heimdal, John-Helge; Halvorsen, Thomas; Vollsæter, Maria; Røksund, Ola Drange (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Background: Most patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are treated with mechanical insufflation–exsufflation (MI-E) in order to improve cough. This method often fails in ALS with bulbar involvement, allegedly ...
    • Prevalence of long-term mechanical insufflation-exsufflation in children with neurological conditions: a population-based study 

      Hov, Brit; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Toussaint, Michel; Vollsæter, Maria; Mikalsen, Ingvild Bruun; Indrekvam, Solfrid; Hovland, Vegard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim: To determine the prevalence of long-term mechanical insufflation-exsufflation (MI-E) and concomitant mechanical ventilation in children with neurological conditions, with reported reasons behind the initiation of ...
    • Reliability of translaryngeal airway resistance measurements during maximal exercise 

      Fretheim-Kelly, Zoe; Engan, Mette; Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Heimdal, John-Helge; Strand, Eric; Halvorsen, Thomas; Røksund, Ola Drange; Vollsæter, Maria (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Objective Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction is an important cause of exertional dyspnoea. The diagnosis rests on visual judgement of relative changes of the laryngeal inlet during continuous laryngoscopy exercise (CLE) ...
    • Severe exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction treated with supraglottoplasty 

      Sandnes, Astrid; Hilland, Magnus; Vollsæter, Maria; Andersen, Tiina Maarit; Engesæter, Ingvild Øvstebø; Sandvik, Lorentz; Heimdal, John-Helge; Halvorsen, Thomas; Eide, Geir Egil; Røksund, Ola Drange; Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-07-31)
      Introduction: Exercise induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) is relatively common in adolescents, with symptoms often confused with exercise induced asthma. EILO often starts with medial or inward rotation of supraglottic ...
    • Tailoring NIV by dynamic laryngoscopy in a child with spinal muscular atrophy type I 

      Vollsæter, Maria; Skjoldmo, Anett; Røksund, Ola Drange; Hilland, Magnus; Andersen, Tiina Maarit (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Dynamic laryngoscopy during noninvasive (NIV) respiratory therapy is feasible and may facilitate optimal and individualized treatment in patients with chronic respiratory failure, also in children.
