Interesting article from NPR on exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction and the breathing techniques used to treat it:

Young athletes — especially girls — can struggle with a breathing condition frequently misdiagnosed as asthma. While it may look like asthma, the real cause of the problem is in the vocal cords.

Learn how speech language pathologists are playing a key role in helping COVID-19 patients:

Why do COVID-19 patients who are on ventilators need the services of a speech-language pathologist? SLP Rinki Desai explains it best from her vantage point on the frontlines:

"These patients are not swallowing. They are not able to communicate verbally, and they have a significant impact on their voice. If a patient goes anywhere beyond two days on a ventilator, there can be significant injuries. For COVID-19 patients, the most immediate impairment that speech language pathologists treat in the ICU is helping patients communicate while they are on a ventilator using a white board or gestures. Once patients are off the ventilator, we help them breathe, swallow, and use their voice again."
