Noisy breathing, feeding and voice problems often co-exist. They can be life-threatening, or severely delay growth and development. Sometimes, underlying airway anomalies like narrowing and tumors may be wrongly diagnosed as asthma or recurrent infections.
A flexible nasoendoscopy is done to diagnose the site of obstruction in the clinic. Airway X-rays may be needed. Our speech and swallowing therapist assesses for related voice and feeding problems. A rigid bronchoscopy under general anaesthesia may be needed.
