Breath of the Wild! A podcast on breath holding spells

Don’t hold you breath while listening to this podcast – because you’d be doing so for longer than 20 seconds – and you will have apnea. Do however, listen to learn more about cyanotic and pallid breath holding spells so that you can be prepared to diagnose and manage them in the Emergency Department.

You can listen to the podcast right here:

 

…or check it out on iTunes or wherever you subscribe to your favorite podcasts.
