Andrew Redmann, MD, pediatric otolaryngologist, Children’s Minnesota ENT and Facial Plastics, recently presented to a group of pediatric clinicians in Western Wisconsin with the support of the Children’s Minnesota Speakers Bureau. Due to the pandemic and restriction on travel, the presentation was facilitated virtually.
His topic “Pediatric airway: Squeaky, Snorty, and everything in between!” covered sleep disordered breathing, obstructive sleep apnea, and caring for the “noisy child.” These are common conditions cared for by pediatricians in the community, and his talk described a collaborative approach in caring for these issues.
“Noisy breathing is a common problem seen by most pediatricians, and using a systematic way to work up these patients allows us to provide high quality care. Many parents get worried when their child has noisy breathing, but the majority of patients do very well with appropriate medical or surgical intervention. Due to this, my goal when caring patients is to do the least amount of intervention for the maximum amount of benefit,” said Dr. Redmann.
Dr. Redmann’s clinical interests are in the treatment of complex aerodigestive disorders and otologic surgery, and his research interests are primarily in the field of bioethics and surgical decision making, with a focus on understanding how parents and surgeons collaborate to make the best decisions for patients. Dr. Redmann enjoys teaching and connecting with his clinical colleagues, and the extraordinary privilege of taking care of children.
