My child can hold her breath until she passes out - what should I do?

Dr. Mark Diamond
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Nothing !: If a healthy child intentionally holds their breath, the brain has a very strong self preservation reflex to prevent any damage. The child passes out at which point they spontaneously begin breathing.Do not try to force them to breath because things like forcing their mouths open may trigger a reflex preventing them from breathing no matter what.Although scary, in this case , leave her alone!

Can tilt training help prevent vasovagal syncope?

Dr. Peter Kurzweil
Internal Medicine 50 years experience
Not really: Neurocardiogenic syncope in young people is pretty common and there are different triggers that lead to the faint in people, but the trigger is often the same for a particular person. A large study was done comparing lifestyle change training vs this training +tilt training: no real difference in outcome. Also tilt training takes a lot of discipline and is not easy. So, not really.

Sounds like . . .: Sounds like you might have an anxiety disorder, panic attacks, or possibly depression with anxiety attacks. You could get help by working with a psychiatrist -- along with a psychotherapist if the psychiatrist does not also do psychotherapy. There are very good treatments for these conditions.
