Underlying Mechanisms in Episodic Laryngeal Breathing Disorders The study and management of episodic laryngeal breathing disorders (ELBD)—characterized by paradoxical laryngeal movement patterns and dyspnea—has traditionally focused on clinical presentation of these conditions. However, the underlying mechanisms driving these entities are largely unknown. This article provides a review of potential underlying mechanisms driving clinical expression in ELBD and ... Article

The study and management of episodic laryngeal breathing disorders (ELBD)—characterized by paradoxical laryngeal movement patterns and dyspnea—has traditionally focused on clinical presentation of these conditions. However, the underlying mechanisms driving these entities are largely unknown. This article provides a review of potential underlying mechanisms driving clinical expression in ELBD and suggests approaches to the future study of ELBD etiology.
