Asthma & Voice Disorders

(IRB#: IRB_00088230)

Asthma is when a person has difficulty breathing due to swelling or inflamed airways. A voice disorder is when a person may have a problem with speaking due to swelling or inflamed vocal cords. The study wants to learn the effect of taking inhaled medication (medication given to some people with asthma) on people with voice disorders. People in the study will attend visits in person at a study clinic. Medical tests and voice evaluation will be done during the study to track the health of participants.
