Symposium on airway obstruction
The papers comprising this Symposium were presented at the 1979 Annual Meeting of the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Chest Physicians.
The material presented concerns some aspects of diagnosis and treatment of airway obstruction, from the hypopharyngeal obstruction of sleep apnea to the appearance of flow-volume loop in small airways obstruction. In organizing this symposium, an attempt was made to select topics of interest for general internists and pulmonologists.
I thank the participants for their contributions.
