In brief: Prevent laryngospasm

Laryngospasm occurs suddenly and causes difficulty breathing and speaking.
Although frightening, an episode of laryngospasm is brief. The specific cause is not always known, so specific treatment is for a cause is not readily available. Avoid exposure to what seems to have triggered laryngospasm in the past. Treat inhalant allergies and reflux routinely. See your doctor for evaluation.
