The plaintiff went to a clinic at Stroger complaining of a sore throat, problems swallowing and difficulty breathing. He was subsequently transferred and seen in the emergency room where an x-ray of his neck revealed severe epiglottitis, an inflammation of the cartilage that covers the windpipe while swallowing. While waiting for an airway assessment by an otolaryngologist, the plaintiff suffered  respiratory arrest and died several days later.
