6th International ILO, Upper and Lower Airway Conference: The Concept of One Airway

Pittsburgh, PA US
June 13, 2024 to June 14, 2024

Exertional dyspnea – why, how, and what to do about it?
Inducible laryngeal obstruction – it is right under our noses?
Refractory asthma – why is it refractory and how to manage it?
Speech and language pathologist’s approach to dyspnea, cough and throat disorders
The role of nose and sinuses in chronic respiratory symptoms
How to evaluate environmental and allergic factors?
The impact of laryngeal disorders on the management of sleep apnea
From the top to the bottom of the airway – which part is driving my patient’s symptoms?
Is treating GERD an answer to all our problems?

If you have encountered some of these questions in your practice, the 6th International ILO, Upper and Lower Airway Conference will provide a comprehensive approach to the evaluation and management of complex and overlapping respiratory symptoms of the Upper, Middle (Larynx), and Lower Airways. The world experts in the field will share their clinical management pearls and new diagnostic methods (including continuous laryngoscopy with exercise and provocation) to help make a timely and correct diagnosis. The conference will feature presentations and interactive multidisciplinary workshops by specialists in Pulmonary Medicine, Allergy/Immunology, Otolaryngology, Speech and Language Pathology, Sleep Medicine, Sports Medicine, and Gastroenterology.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify the overlap in symptoms and interaction between allergic and sinonasal disease, hypersensitive larynx, GERD, chronic cough, and asthma in the outpatient setting.
2. Differentiate exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction from other causes of exertional dyspnea in adolescent and adult patients. 
3. Learn when and how to perform continuous laryngoscopy with exercise and/or provocation in a hands-on workshop. 
4. Comprehend the advanced speech and language pathology treatment approaches for ILO, EILO, and chronic cough.
