Obstructive hypoventilation is characterized by a long period of upper-airway narrowing with a stable reduction in airflow and an increase in the end-tidal PCO2 (Fig. 1-25). There is usually a mild decrease in the arterial oxygen desaturation. The ribcage is not completely calcified in infants and young children. Therefore, some paradoxical breathing is not necessarily abnormal. However, worsening paradox during an event would still suggest a partial airway obstruction.
