Is there a word that means during both inspiration and expiration.....like pan-resiratory or holo-respiratory?

A patient of mine is c/o pain s/p chest tube. He has the pain throughout the entire respiratory cycle (insp and expir.).

Is there a word for this?

:confused:

I haven't heard of one. If there is one, however, it would likely have a 'ventilation' ending rather than a 'respiratory' one.

All I've ever seen or heard is "inspiratory/expiratory pain" or it charted as "i/e pain".

Yes. The word is very technical and very few people know it. The word is - constant.
