Inducible Laryngeal Obstruction: Chameleon Conundrums
Not all respiratory symptoms are related to the lungs. Dr Jemma Haines, MBE, focusses in her presentation on breathlessness caused by irregularities in the upper airways, such as Inducible Laryngeal Obstruction (ILO).
During the presentation Dr Haines defines and describes ILO, providing insight as to its prevalence and how this condition typically presents (i.e. transient symptoms of stridor, cough, chest tightness, throat tightness, voice change) following exposure to a trigger. She then shares practical advice as to how it can be managed, including a case study with positive results following breathing and vocal box muscle exercises.
