Abstract

This new edition covers all areas associated with treating acute or chronic respiratory problems in children. It discusses the approach to clinical problems, specific conditions, supportive care and practical procedures, and includes vital appendices covering specific tests and statistics. Designed as a practical guide, it serves general and specialist paediatricians at both consultant and trainee level. Divided into five parts, it provides a practical approach to acute and non-acute clinical problems;, detailed information about common and more rare clinical conditions, useful information on supportive care, including the use of non-invasive ventilation and the care of a child with a tracheotomy; and details on how to perform several practical procedures, such as ciliary brush biopsy, flexible bronchoscopy, and inserting a chest drain. The appendices provide information on lung function testing and tables of age-corrected normal values for several respiratory parameters.
