What is the airway?
The airway involves the entire respiratory system of a child. This includes their nose, paranasal sinuses, pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), trachea (windpipe), and lungs.
In addition, other conditions can affect the function of the airway, such as gastroesophageal reflux or swallowing difficulties.
What patients would benefit most from multidisciplinary evaluation?
The patient who would receive the greatest benefit is one who has at least 3 diagnoses related to their airway. While each team member would be happy to see any referred patient, formal PAC evaluation should be reserved for patients with multiple airway diagnoses.
