Subsequent chapters cover specific anatomic regions and disorders, including the nose and pharynx, congenital laryngeal anomalies, laryngotracheal stenosis, the tracheobronchial tree, inflammatory and neoplastic lesions, foreign bodies, chronic cough, persistent and recurrent pneumonia, caustic ingestion, esophageal injury and stricture, swallowing disorders, gastroesophageal reflux, obstructive sleep apnea, and disorders of respiratory control. Coverage also includes detailed chapters on tracheostomy and on office endoscopy for evaluation of speech and voice. The last two chapters offer guidelines on photographic documentation and on care and maintenance of endoscopic equipment. More than 300 illustrations, 187 in full color, complement the text throughout
