The most common complication of prolonged endotracheal intubation is vocal change. This dysphonia is a result of the laryngeal pathology produced by the recurrent frictional irritation of the endotracheal tube with each respiratory exchange. The purpose of this paper is to present three representative cases, stress early recognition, and outline a course of vigorous early treatment which has proved to be successful in alleviating and reducing the prolonged symptoms of this iatrogenic dysphonia.
