Management of the Anomalous Pediatric Airway

The pediatric airway is such a small passage that a change of just one millimeter can decrease a child’s airway by 40%. Dr. Rande Lazar, a pediatric specialist in Memphis, Tennessee, has researched anomalous pediatric airways for much of his career.

It has been established that the single most common cause of such changes is a condition known as Stridor. Dr. Lazar has determined that Stridor, caused by a turbulent airflow through the airway, is a symptom, not a diagnosis of what is wrong in the throat.

For more information on Stridor and anomalous airways, read this whitepaper, hosted at the Memphis Ear, Nose, and Throat blog.
