Management of the Anomalous Pediatric Airway

The pediatric airway is small, soft and pliable. It is therefore vulnerable to small obstructions which can cause big problems.

Memphis doctor, Rande Lazar, MD, has conducted a lot of research into this fact. His whitepaper at the Memphis Ear Nose and Throat blog, “Management of the Anomalous Pediatric Airway” is an informative look into the subject.

A child’s airway is so small that a reduction of the neonatal glottis by 1mm decreases the airway by 40%, a massive change that can severely affect the child’s ability to breathe normally. Usually such anomalous airways are the result of a condition called Stridor.

If you have any questions about ear, nose and throat disorders, please contact Otolaryngology Consultants of Memphis.
