Early Access Objective: Millions of people across the globe suffer from swallowing difficulties, known as dysphagia, that can lead to malnutrition, pneumonia, and even death. Swallowing cervical auscultation, which has been suggested as a noninvasive screening method for dysphagia, has not been associated yet with any physical events.
Bronchoscopy inspection, as a follow-up procedure next to the radiological imaging, plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment design for lung disease patients. When performing bronchoscopy, doctors have to make a decision immediately whether to perform a biopsy.
Accumulation of excess air and water in the lungs leads to breakdown of respiratory function and is a common cause of patient hospitalization. Compact and non-invasive methods to detect changes in lung fluid accumulation can allow physicians to assess patients’ respiratory conditions.
JTEHM has passed the National Library of Medicine’s rigorous Scientific Quality Review for inclusion in PubMed Central (PMC).
JTEHM is also indexed in Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed research literature; and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals.
