The effect of gastroesophageal reflux on the pediatric airway.


The child with airway signs and symptoms that may be associated with GER presents diagnostic challenges. A high index of suspicion may be needed to make the diagnosis of GER, because no one test gives consistently definitive results. Specialists from multiple disciplines, including otolaryngology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, pediatrics, critical care, anesthesiology, and pediatric surgery may ultimately need to work together to arrive at the correct diagnosis and implement appropriate therapy.
