Vocal chord dysfunction may cause symptoms similar to asthma, but it is actually more of a syndrome than a disease. As Jeffrey Weiland, MD, a pulmonologist at Ohio State, explains, many of the same triggers for asthma, such as pollution, a cold or weather changes, can also cause the vocal chords to constrict ever so slightly. This increased resistance to air mimics asthma, but requires a completely different treatment, including speech therapy and relaxation techniques. While anyone can suffer vocal chord dysfunction, it is most common in women of childbearing age. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, visit http://lungcenter.osu.edu/ or call (614) 293-8629.

Researchers have uncovered that 33 percent of adults diagnosed with active asthma have been given an incorrect diagnosis. The study reviewed 613 participants who had been given the diagnosis in the last 5 years and after extensive testing including detailed breathing test, the findings revealed that the researchers were able to rule out asthma in 1 out of 3 of the participants. According to menshealth.com a review of the original asthma diagnosis in patients who didn’t actually have the condition, found that their physician had failed to order an airflow test called the spirometry—which assess how much you inhale and exhale—in 49 percent of the cases. http://www.menshealth.com/health/incorrect-asthma-diagnoses http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

AKA paradoxical vocal cord dysfunction, paradoxical vocal fold motion, and factitious asthma. Vocal cord dysfunction is a syndrome in which inappropriate vocal cord motion produces partial airway obstruction, leading to subjective respiratory distress. When a person breathes normally, the vocal cords move away from the midline during inspiration and only slightly toward the midline during expiration. However, in patients with vocal cord dysfunction, the vocal cords move toward the midline during inspiration or expiration, which creates varying degrees of obstruction. Patients with vocal cord dysfunction typically present with recurrent episodes of subjective respiratory distress that are associated with inspiratory stridor, cough, choking sensations, and throat tightness. Laryngospasm - is a subtype of vocal cord dysfunction, is a brief involuntary spasm of the vocal cords that often produces aphonia and acute respiratory distress. Laryngospasm is a common complication of anesthesia. Precipitating Factors Vocal cord dysfunction is associated with a variety of precipitating factors, but no clear unifying pathophysiology has been identified. Exercise is a common cause of vocal cord dysfunction. Exercise-induced vocal cord dysfunction is often misdiagnosed as exercise-induced asthma. It should be strongly considered in patients with dyspnea on exertion who have been diagnosed with exercise-induced asthma, particularly if they respond poorly to usual treatment with bronchodilators. Studies have reported associations between vocal cord dysfunction and multiple psychological conditions, including posttraumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, and panic attack. Anxiety disorders appear to be particularly common in adolescent patients with vocal cord dysfunction.However, associated depression and anxiety may also be consequences of persistent respiratory symptoms, rather than causes. Exposure to environmental and occupational irritants has been found to precipitate respiratory symptoms consistent with vocal cord dysfunction. Common airborne irritants associated with vocal cord dysfunction include ammonia, dust, smoke, soldering fumes, and cleaning chemicals. Studies have shown a clear temporal relationship between exposure and onset of symptoms. Postnasal drip associated with rhinosinusitis has been linked to airway hyperresponsiveness. A high prevalence of rhinosinusitis in patients with vocal cord dysfunction and case reports of resolution of vocal cord dysfunction symptoms with treatment suggest that rhinosinusitis may play a role in some patients. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been implicated in triggering vocal cord dysfunction. In some studies, a high prevalence of GERD was identified in patients with vocal cord dysfunction; however, treatment of GERD was only effective in decreasing vocal cord dysfunction in some patients. Neuroleptic drugs, specifically phenothiazines, may cause transient vocal cord dysfunction. This appears to be a focal dystonic reaction and is associated with extra-pyramidal signs, such as torticollis. Diagnostic Approaches The most valuable diagnostic tests for vocal cord dysfunction are pulmonary function testing with a flow-volume loop and flexible laryngoscopy. Other testing, such as measurement of arterial blood gases, may be useful in ruling out other possible diagnoses. PULMONARY FUNCTION TESTING Pulmonary function testing with a flow-volume loop is the most commonly used diagnostic test to confirm vocal cord dysfunction. In the flow-volume loop, it is typical for the expiratory loop to be normal and the inspiratory loop to be flattened, which is consistent with an extrathoracic upper airway obstruction Exercise flow-volume loops, performed in conjunction with exercise testing, may be useful in identifying patients with exercise-induced vocal cord dysfunction. FLEXIBLE LARYNGOSCOPY Flexible laryngoscopy is considered the diagnostic standard for vocal cord dysfunction. Direct observation of abnormal vocal cord movement toward the midline during inspiration or expiration confirms the diagnosis. Most patients with symptomatic vocal cord dysfunction will demonstrate the abnormal movement, and more than one half of patients who are asymptomatic will be diagnosed.Stimulating asymptomatic patients with panting, deep breathing, phonating, or exercising may increase the sensitivity of the test.

Exercise-induced asthma can keep you and your child out of the activities you loves. Learn the symptoms and treatment options from Dr. Robert Crawford’s video. Cough, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, and poor performance occurring five to twenty minutes after strenuous exercise could be signs and symptoms that your child has exercise-induced asthma. Exercise-induced asthma happens when the bronchial tubes undergo constriction and inflammation. This can happen in about 10 percent of athletes. Up to fifty percent of patients with allergies and in patients with known asthma ninety percent of the time, exercise can be a trigger for asthma symptoms If your child experiences these signs and symptoms after activity, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, coughing or wheezing minutes into aerobic activity. These are common in running sports like cross country, soccer, and basketball. They might have exercise-induced asthma. Exercise-induced asthma should never limit your child's activities. At Summa, we use a team approach to make the diagnosis involving the athlete, parents, coaches and certified athletic trainers to give you the best outcome. Treatments can include preventative measures by covering your mouth and nose during cold air exercises, proper warmup 15 minutes before your event, cool-down exercises, and avoiding air pollutants and allergens. Medications can also be used to improve the symptoms. summahealth.org/sportshealth

Many people who are diagnosed with asthma, may not actually have it. Researchers in Canada re-checked more than 600 adult patients being treated for asthma. One-third of them did not have the disease and were able to stop their medications. Instead, patients appeared to have allergies, heartburn or nothing wrong at all. It's not clear if these patients were misdiagnosed or had asthma that was no longer active. In half the cases, Doctors failed to order the standard tests to confirm a diagnosis.

VOCAL CORD DYSFUNCTION (VCD) OR PARADOXICAL VOCAL FOLD MOVEMENT (PVFM) Vocal Cord Dysfunction (VCD) or Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement (PVFM) occurs when the vocal cords (voice box) do not open correctly. This disorder is also referred to as paradoxical vocal fold movement. VCD is sometimes confused with asthma because some of the symptoms are similar. In asthma, the airways (bronchial tubes) tighten, making breathing difficult. With VCD, the vocal cord muscles tighten, which also makes breathing difficult. Unlike asthma, VCD is not an allergic response starting in the immune system. To add to the confusion, many people with asthma also have VCD. Although the two may have similar triggers and symptoms, the treatment approach for VCD is very different than treatments used to manage and control asthma. This makes proper diagnosis essential. An allergist / immunologist has specialized training and experience in the diagnosis, treatment and management of complex conditions such as asthma and VCD. SYMPTOMS & DIAGNOSIS Symptoms Symptoms of VCD can include: • Difficulty breathing • Coughing • Wheezing • Throat tightness • Hoarse voice • Voice changes Much like with asthma, breathing in lung irritants, exercising, a cold or viral infection, or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) may trigger symptoms of VCD. Unlike asthma, VCD causes more difficulty breathing in than breathing out. The reverse is true for symptoms of asthma. Diagnosis Diagnosing VCD can be challenging. The history of breathing difficulties when taking in a breath, having a hoarse voice or experiencing voice changes may be very helpful to discuss with your allergist / immunologist. This may lead to further tests such as spirometry or laryngoscopy. Spirometry is a breathing test that measures airflow. A laryngoscopy involves looking at the vocal cords through a camera attached to a flexible tube. Vocal cords should be open when taking in a breath. In some people with VCD, the vocal cords actually close instead of opening. TREATMENT & MANAGEMENT Many people have both VCD and asthma. Yet, the treatment approach for each is different. Treatment for VCD typically involves activities that relax the throat muscles including: • Speech therapy • Deep breathing techniques If you suffer from asthma, allergies or GERD, managing these conditions will help in treating VCD.

How does a doctor go about establishing whether a patient has Asthma? The definition of Asthma is reversible airway obstruction. Airflow through the airways sometimes is easy and sometimes is difficult. In a normal person airflow is easy all the time. What doctors do is use tests that measure the rate of flow through the airway and administer medication to see whether the airflow improves over a short period of time. Medication can also be used to see if airflow improves over a long period of time. Airflow can also be measured under different circumstances for example before and after exercise.

Dr Norman Swan and the Tonic team explore a common, chronic condition that affects one in six kids and one in 10 adults and has the potential to be devastating - asthma. The evidence is that it's often poorly managed with many people not using their medications effectively, and as a result having worse asthma symptoms than necessary. We look at how asthma affects the lives of people living with it, through the eyes of Kathy and Jeff, two very different asthma sufferers. Kathy wasn't diagnosed until her late twenties, after a series of misdiagnoses and years of struggling with not being well and not really understanding why. Jeff on the other hand was diagnosed as a child and has found that managing his asthma well allows him to live a life full of sport and fitness. Asthma expert Professor Matthew Peters tells us about the latest in asthma research and why this common condition is mistreated and misdiagnosed, and has loads of great information for people with asthma and their loved ones. We also take a look at how schools are equipped to look after students with asthma.

(Denver, CO) – Millions of young athletes experience a scary and potentially dangerous breathing disorder known as exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO). EILO, commonly misdiagnosed as asthma, is unresponsive to asthma medications. So doctors at National Jewish Health have developed new breathing techniques that are helping athletes control their EILO symptoms, even during high-intensity exercise when they tend to be most severe. “We found that if EILO patients can control and change the airflow through their mouth, they’re also able to control their throat,” said Tod Olin, MD, a pediatric pulmonologist at National Jewish Health who developed the exercises now known as the Olin EILOBI breathing techniques. “After teaching them these new techniques, 80 percent of patients reported them to be extremely helpful and two-thirds of patients were able to control their EILO symptoms by using them during exercise.” Dr. Olin developed the breathing exercises based on observations of patients’ airways during very intense exercise. He asks patients to pedal as fast as they can on a stationary bike while a small camera in their throat captures images of their vocal cords. In those with EILO, their vocal cords tighten and close the top of the airway, causing noisy, labored breathing. Patients spend several sessions learning to perform the techniques step-by-step. By mastering them, athletes are able to use these techniques when EILO symptoms strike, even if they’re out of breath and may be panicked. Dr. Olin says that’s what makes the new breathing techniques so helpful when traditional EILO exercises fall short. “Some of the traditional techniques that we use for EILO simply can’t be performed during high-intensity exercise.” he said. “Specifically when patients are asked to inhale through their nose, it’s simply not something you can do if you’re running as fast as you can.”

Pulmonary Embolism What Is It And How Is It Misdiagnosed? Maryland Medical Malpractice Trial Attorneys firstname.lastname@example.org 301-850-4832 www.bostonlawllc.com A pulmonary embolism (“PE”) can be a very serious misdiagnosed medical condition. Because of this, doctors must pay close attention to a patient’s complaints when a patient presents to the emergency room or doctor’s office. A PE can be classified as a sudden clot blockage in the lungs, with a patient complaining of shortness of breath, chest pain, and a cough. Because of these types of complaints, doctors can over-look the PE and diagnose the patient with an asthma attack, bronchitis, or pneumonia. In some cases, doctors can conclude and settle on a diagnosis of heart attack. However, if a doctor does suspect that the patient may be suffering from a PE, a CT scan or other test of the chest area can be performed. If evidence of deep vein thrombosis is present, and doctors conclude that a PE is the diagnosis, clot busting medications and treatments can be administered to the patient. When the PE is missed, and if the clot is big enough, it can cause serious issue in not only the lungs, but also the heart. Because of the buildup of pressure in the lungs, the heart has to work harder. This can lead to eventual damage and even possible failure of the heart and lungs. If you or your loved one has suffered a serious medical injury such as heart or lung failure as a result of a misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism, and this happened in Maryland, this is what we invite you to do.

If your doctor prescribes a controller medicine for your asthma, that means your asthma is persistent or not well controlled. In order for your controller medicine to work effectively, that means you need to use it every day, or sometimes twice a day, even if you feel fine. There are two types of medicine that treat asthma: Rescue medicine, such as albuterol, should be used whenever symptoms occur, or sometimes if you know you're going to have symptoms, like before exercise. This type of medicine helps open your airways so you can breathe easier. You can feel this working inside your body, but it only lasts for a few hours. Even though it makes you feel better, it won't make your asthma any better long term. Controller medicine works by treating the inflammation and swelling inside the lungs, which is a big deal. You don't really feel it working, but if you use it every day, then your asthma should be under much better control. This means that over time you won't have to use your rescue medicine quite as much. For some children or teenagers with asthma, they can become very sick, and this often happens very quickly. Even though we have a lot of great medicines that help treat asthma, children and teenagers still die from asthma every day in the United States. One of the best ways to make sure that your child remains healthy is by going to all of your appointments with your doctor and make sure you understand your asthma treatment plan, also known as an asthma action plan.Then, when you're at home, make sure they receive their controller medicine every day, even when they feel fine. This will not only make them feel better in the long term, but hopefully will keep them from getting sick.

M.E. is a distinct, scientifically verifiable and measurable, acute onset, organic neurological disease. 'CFS' in contrast, is not a distinct disease. 'CFS' doesn't exist. Every diagnosis of CFS -- based on any of the CFS definitions -- can only ever be a misdiagnosis. The fact that a person qualifies for a diagnosis of 'CFS' (a) does not mean that the patient has M.E., and (b) does not mean that the patient has any other distinct illness named 'CFS.' The patient population diagnosed with 'CFS' is made up of people with a vast array of unrelated illnesses, or with no detectable illness. While most M.E. patients are misdiagnosed with 'CFS' it is very important to note that most of those given a 'CFS' diagnosis do NOT have M.E. The only way forward for M.E. patients and all of the diverse patient groups commonly misdiagnosed with 'CFS' (both of which are denied appropriate support, diagnosis and treatment, and may also be subject to serious medical abuse) is that the bogus disease category of 'CFS' must be abandoned. ALL patients deserve better! Please see the www.hfme.org site for more information.

A nagging cough and sensitivity to perfumes led a Pittsburgh woman to suspect she had asthma. But, a little-known condition, vocal cord dysfunction, was the real culprit that made it hard for her to breathe. West Penn Hospital otolaryngologist Dr. Shelly McQuone says VCD is more common than you might think and that speech therapy, psychotherapy or anti-anxiety medications can bring relief.

It's important for everyone to use a spacer every time they use their inhaler. A spacer is an attachment that fits onto the end of your inhaler, like this. If you use your inhaler without a spacer, then most of the medicine ends up inside your mouth or stomach, instead of your lungs, where it works best. The spacer acts as a holding chamber where the medicine sits as a fine mist that you can then breathe in very slowly. Spacer devices are for all ages. Younger children may have a face mask that fits tightly over their face and mouth. Older children or teenagers can often use a spacer with a mouthpiece. With a little practice, spacers are very easy to use. You do have to remember to still breathe in very slowly and then hold your breath at the end.
