Thus, based on these data, we assumed that exposure to wDE would not only cause immediate exposure-related physiological changes (not measured) but also sensitize the airway autonomic reflex arc (Figure 4), resulting in autonomic imbalance and increased sensitivity to developing arrhythmia.
The effect of LPR in the pediatric airway might be mediated by one or all of three mechanisms: (1) microaspiration with stimulation of the laryngeal adductor reflux, (2) micro-aspiration with chemical pneumonitis, and (3) stimulation of an esophageal-vagal and/or autonomic reflex that results in or potentiates bronchial constriction.
We then use a complete physical exam, autonomic reflex testing, and EAV (electroacupuncture according to Voll) screening to make a suspected diagnosis.
