Singulation is the dysfunction of exhalation arising as a result of convulsive reductions of a diaphragm like short heavy spontaneous respiratory movements. Sharp jerky reductions of a diaphragm lead to a sudden change of thorax volume, lungs fill the formed volume, stretching and provoking a convulsive breath. The sudden movement of air in a mucous throat irritates the nervous terminations. Singulation looks like the repeating short and heavy respiratory movements reminding convulsive whimpers.
Singulation is a very unpleasant phenomenon of an unpredictable and spontaneous nature. It can quite often arise at the most inopportune moment. An incidental or short-term singulation arises suddenly, lasts 10 – 15 minutes and also suddenly stops. A Long time frame of its continuation is every day for several weeks. Sometimes, it can proceed for hours and even days.
Singulation is not a painless occasion but a little bit uncomfortable. But it turns out singulation may be a symptom of some digestive system disorder including severe ones. In case if this disorder doesn’t disappear after 5-15 minutes, it is better to take drugs to normalize and take under control the digestive system. Such drugs may be ordered on the Internet.
