Abstract

Stridor can be a frightening presentation in the Emergency Department (ED), necessitating prompt diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers. The differential diagnosis of stridor in different age groups must be familiar to those practicing in emergency care. Early detection and management of the acute problem will pave a path towards a better recovery. In this case study, we report 6 cases of stridor from different age groups presented to the ED. By distinguishing the different presentations of acute stridor in children and adult, this will facilitate the diagnosis and management given by primary care physicians in the emergency department.
