331 Possible Causes for Inspiratory Stridor

  • Croup

    Bilateral vocal-cord paralysis produces a high-pitched inspiratory stridor. (Stridor doesn’t occur in unilateral vocal-cord paralysis.)[web.archive.org] METHODS: Children were classified as having recurrent croup if they had had 2 or more episodes of barky cough, inspiratory stridor, and hoarseness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Inspiratory stridor suggests a laryngeal obstruction, whereas expiratory stridor suggests tracheobronchial obstruction.[emedicine.com]

  • Angioedema

    In severe cases, stridor of the airway occurs, with gasping or wheezy inspiratory breath sounds and decreasing oxygen levels.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Foreign Body in the Esophagus

  • Acute Epiglottitis

    Additionally, airway patency should be established when inspiratory stridor appears assuring uncomplicated recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission the patient was ill and severely distressed, sitting in the upright position, drooling saliva, showing severe inspiratory stridor, hyperventilation, but no trismus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] stridor or difficulties in swallowing, and (c) a temperature or 38 degrees C.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Laryngeal Stridor

    Bilateral vocal-cord paralysis produces a high-pitched inspiratory stridor. (Stridor doesn’t occur in unilateral vocal-cord paralysis.)[americannursetoday.com] Inspiratory Stridor Typically caused by obstruction at or above the level of the vocal cords Expiratory Stridor Usually localized to the more distal tracheobronchial tree[slideshare.net] Patients usually present with inspiratory or biphasic stridor that may worsen as the hemangioma enlarges.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Foreign Body in the Bronchus

    His lung sounds showed mild wheezing with possible mild inspiratory stridor. An albuterol aerosol was administered but no improvement was noted.[dontforgetthebubbles.com] Approximately 50% of children have inspiratory stridor or expiratory wheezing, with prolongation of the expiratory phase, and medium-to-coarse rhonchi. [9] Tachypnea; nasal[emedicine.medscape.com] […] have a higher rate of negative bronchoscopy for foreign body. [8] Physical Choking or coughing is present in 95% of patients presenting with foreign body aspiration. [4] Stridor[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Spasmodic Croup

    Our results show that stridor in this patient was due to dynamic inspiratory constriction of the vocal cords.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Inspiratory stridor in croup.

Cugell, MD.[merckmanuals.com] Similar inspiratory stridor can result from epiglottitis, bacterial tracheitis, airway foreign body, diphtheria, and retropharyngeal abscess.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Bacterial Tracheitis

    A previously healthy young adult presented with inspiratory stridor and hoarseness but minimal dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An 18-month-old girl was brought to the emergency room of Chang Gung Children's Hospital with inspiratory stridor, suprasternal retractions and imminent respiratory failure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bacterial tracheitis is the term used to describe a severe infraglottic infection characterized by toxicity, brassy cough, inspiratory stridor, subglottic oedema and the presence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vocal Cord Dysfunction

    Myasthenic vocal cord dysfunction (VCD), presenting with severe inspiratory stridor, was successfully treated with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP), thus[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, evaluation revealed inspiratory stridor and flattening of the inspiratory limb of the flow-volume curve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the specific inhalation challenge, the patients showed dysphonia, chest tightness, inspiratory stridor, and flattening of the inspiratory limb of the maximum flow-volume[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Tracheal Foreign Body

    His lung sounds showed mild wheezing with possible mild inspiratory stridor. An albuterol aerosol was administered but no improvement was noted.[dontforgetthebubbles.com] Approximately 50% of children have inspiratory stridor or expiratory wheezing, with prolongation of the expiratory phase, and medium-to-coarse rhonchi. [9] Tachypnea; nasal[emedicine.medscape.com] […] have a higher rate of negative bronchoscopy for foreign body.
