Abstract

Postoperative respiratory distress with stridor may be due to psychogenic aetiology. Suspicion of psychogenic respiratory distress in a patient not responding to conventional treatment for laryngospasm and recognition of psychogenic aetiology can prevent unnecessary invasive investigations and interventions.
