Abstract

CLARENCE R. COLLIER, CLARENCE W. DAIL AND JOHN E, AFFELDT. From the Ranch Los Amigos Respiratory Center for Poliomyelitis,1 Hondo, and I/E Departmenls of Internal Medicine and Physical Medicine, College of Medical Evangelists, Los Angeles, California reports (1-4) have indicated that glossopharyngeal breathing (GPB) is a useful method of independent breathing in patients with respiratory muscle paralysis due to poliomyelitis. The ability to maintain normal alveolar ventilation by GPB has been demonstrated by arterial blood and alveolar air studies. Clinical and spirographic studies have demonstrated the great value of CPB to the paralyzed patient. It provides the only means by which many patients can be freed from mechanical respirators during a part or all of the waking hours, Over IOO patients have learned to use GPB effectively in this hospital, some for as long as 14 hours at a time. One limitation is the difficulty of teaching the method to the paralyzed patient.
