Vocal overdoer syndrome (VOS)*

A term coined by Dr. Anat Keidar and Dr. Bastian to designate an individual whose amount and manner of voice use can be considered excessive and to thereby put the person at risk of [intlink id=”356″ type=”post”]mucosal[/intlink] injury. Typically, the VOS is comprised of two parts: innate talkativeness, and a life circumstance (occupation, performance, family, hobby, social) that permits, invites, or demands much voice use.
