Description

Asthma is an extremely heterogeneous disease, with many clinical manifestations. Many patients with asthma experience prominent symptoms of upper airway obstruction (e.g. loss of voice, inspiratory flow limitation) and in some subjects upper airway dysfunction may be a prominent manifestation of disease. VCD exists as a spectrum of airway and laryngeal dysfunction and should be considered in any asthma patient with worsening symptoms and loss of control.

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to discuss that VCD exists on a spectrum of airway disorders and is probably under-diagnosed in many patients with severe, difficult-to-control asthma.
