Diagnosis and Treatment of Exercise-Induced Laryngeal Obstruction (EILO) (SIG 3) (WEB19402)

Presenter(s): Claudio Milstein, PhD, CCC-SLP; Emily Nauman, MA, CCC-SLP; Mary J. Sandage, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description


This course addresses assessment standards for confident diagnosis of exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) for clinicians across settings. Speakers discuss differential diagnoses and complex, co-occurring conditions as well as provide an update on terminology used to describe variants of what used to be commonly known as paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM). The speakers use case examples and research summaries to discuss current, evidence-based, behavioral methods for remediation and resolution of these conditions.

This course is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of courses developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This course was developed by SIG 3: Voice and Upper Airway Disorders.
