Breathy Voice, Unable to Speak for Long Duration

In case of breathy voice, the air stored in lungs is depleted faster than desired.  This is also referred to as ‘inefficient’ use of voice. Some speakers are unable to speak for a long duration in a single breath due to poor breath support or a breathy (leaky) voice.  This results in taking frequent breaths while talking which dries up the throat and may damage the vocal folds.
