Wheezing

Definition

A wheeze is a continuous, coarse, whistling sound produced in the respiratory airways during breathing.

For wheezes to occur, some part of the respiratory tree must be narrowed or obstructed, or airflow velocity within the respiratory tree must be heightened. Wheezing is commonly experienced by persons with a lung disease; the most common cause of recurrent wheezing is asthma attacks.

Children with recurrent wheezing may have an allergic condition, to check this go and see a pulmonologist.
