    Stridor Stridor Presentation Transcript

    • STRIDOR
    • DEFINATION  Stridor is noisy respiration produced by turbulent air flow through the narrowed air passages. It may be heard during inspiration, expiration or both.
    • TYPES OF STRIDOR  INSPIRATORY STRIDOR – It is often produced in obstructive lesions of supraglottis or pharynx.  EXPIRATORY STRIDOR - It is produced in lesions of thoracic trachea, primary and secondary bronchi.  BIPHASIC STRIDOR - It is seen in lesions of glottis, subglottis and cervical trachea.
    • Types Of Stridor And Probable Site of Obstruction
    • Common Causes Of Stridor In Children & Infants
    • Diagnosis Of Stridor In Children
    • Diagnosis Of Stridor In Children Part - 2
    • MANAGEMENT  Stridor is a physical sign not a disease.  Stridor is usually diagnosed on the basis of history and physical examination, with a view to revealing the underlying problem or condition.  Attempt should always be made to discover the cause. It is important to elicit :  Time of onset  Mode of onset  Duration  Cyanotic spells  Aspiration or ingestion of a foreign body  Laryngeal Trauma
    • PHYSICAL EXAMINATION  Stridor is always associated with respiratory distress. There may be recession in Suprasternal Notch, Sternum, Intercostal Spaces & Epigastrium during inspiratory efforts.  Note whether the stridor is inspiratory, expiratory or biphasic. Which indicates probable site of obstruction.
    •  Snoring or snorting – Nasal Or Nasopharyngeal cause.  Gurgling sound and muffled voice - Pharyngeal Cause.  Horse cry or voice – Laryngeal Cause  Expiratory wheeze – Bronchial Obstruction  Associated fever – Infection ex: Acute Laryngitis ASSOCIATED CHARACTERISTICS OF STRIDOR
    • RADIOGRAPHY  X-ray of chest and soft tissue neck both anteroposterior and lateral views.  Fluoroscopy to see chest movements both during inspiration and expiration.  Tomography of chest for mediastinal mass.  Angiography , if aberrant vessels are suspected  CT scan/MRI.
    • TREATMENT  Once the diagnosis has been made treatment of exact cause can be made.  Use of nebulized racemic adrenaline epinephrine in cases where airway edema may be the cause of the stridor.  Use of dexamethasone.  Use of inhaled Heliox (70% helium, 30% oxygen); the effect is almost instantaneous. Helium, being a less dense gas than nitrogen, reduces turbulent flow through the airways.  Some conditions (ex: epiglottitis, bacterial tracheitis) may require antibiotics, while steroids may be useful in other situations.
