OVERVIEW:

Respiratory pathologies due to infection, allergy, trauma, or congenital anomalies are one of the major problems affecting the health and well being of children. Signs of distress must be recognized and assessed promptly. If distress is not promptly identified and interventions begun, respiratory failure and even cardiopulmonary arrest can follow.
