Respiratory Conditions



This is a breathing OUT sound, sighing or whistling in nature falling in pitch from beginning to end. In small children it is often accompanied by recession, a pulling in of the skin below, between and/or above the ribcage. It is due to a problem within the lung themselves as opposed to the voice box windpipe etc. The commonest reasons are asthma or viral related symptoms. You can have stridor and wheezing with laryngotraceobronchitis or perhaps if a child has inhaled a foreign body such as a small toy or peanut.
