In the electromyographic examination, denervation potentials in the cervicothoracic and lumbosacral segments as well as mixed-type sensorimotor polyneuropathy were detected.
The electromyographic examination revealed myogenic changes (low amplitude potential, reduced intervals, myogenic interferential pathway) in the right vastus lateralis muscle, right anterior tibiae muscle, left gastrocnemius muscle, right deltoid muscle and in the left biceps muscle.
(18, 29, 31) An electromyographic examination showed the RCPmi to be under active contraction while the head is in an upright neutral position, with muscle activity increasing significantly during cervical retraction.
The evaluation consisted of the analysis of the medical records for the investigation of otorhinolaryngological opinion regarding the respiratory mode, protocol of Miofunctional Evaluation with Scores (AMIOFE) (28) and electromyographic examination. AMIOFE was also used to define the respiratory mode (28), being this protocol applied integrally once the observation of the patient throughout the evaluation is necessary to define different respiratory modes.
