What Does It Mean If Your Diaphagm Is Paralyzed
What happens if your diaphragm is half paralyzed? Does it mean that you cannot breathe on your own?
Difficulty breathing: Although the diaphragm is one organ, both sides act almost independently, but they need each other for perfect breathing. A nerve on each side of the heart makes the diaphragm move. If that nerve is injured, that particular side of the diaphragm is paralyzed, making breathing difficult.

I can't seem to find much information about left paralyzed diaphragm anywhere! can you explain what it means to have this condition?
