Both Sides of the Table – Living with Idiopathic Subglottic Stenosis

Course Description:
In this podcast, roles were reversed as Tiffany Oakes, MS, CCC-SLP, podcast producer, interviewed our regular host, Dr. Kristin King. The discussion covered the little understood and rare diagnosis of idiopathic subglottic stenosis. As a person with the disease who has walked the path, Dr. King answered questions related to the disease process, why it is often misdiagnosed for years, and the ongoing treatment options for this rare disease that impacts breathing, voice, and even swallowing at times. After completing this course, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the patient demographics and the symptomatology.
  2. List two options for differential diagnosis.
  3. Describe the treatment options and what the prognosis is.
