Common Pediatric Airway Disorders.

Summary of "Common Pediatric Airway Disorders."

Pediatric airway disorders may be congenital (anatomical) or acquired (infectious) and may involve the upper, lower, or entire airway, with obstruction being a common feature. The pathophysiology of upper airway obstruction in infants, children, and adolescents is distinctly different due to the anatomic differences that evolve with growth. Accordingly, clinical presentation and consequences of airway obstruction vary by age. This article reviews the common upper airway disorders by age with a review of classic presentation, recommended diagnostic steps, and management considerations for the general pediatrician.
