Airway diseases may be acute or chronic. For acute symptoms, you should see our general practitioner (GP) who will prescribe additional examinations and treatment as necessary. If you have frequent airway-related illnesses, suspect a chronic disease or have been diagnosed and want advice for what to do next, you should consult our specialists.
Confido has a team of doctors specialising in airway problems of adult and pediatric patients from various perspectives. The team includes experienced GPs, an otorhinolaryngologist, a pulmonologist and a sleep medicine specialist. Sleep disorders are often associated with airway diseases. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by decreased pharyngeal and laryngeal muscle tone. If you suffer from it, you should request a sleep analysis or consultation with our sleep medicine specialist.
Important to know
- Before consulting with a specialist, review all your complaints – when they started and how have they changed over time.
- Bring all previous test and examination results from your medical record, if possible.
- If you are taking or have taken any medicine, review your medicine usage, their observed effects, and any other treatment instructions you have followed.
