Pediatric respiratory disorders are responsible for a number ofacute and chronic health conditions and are a leading cause ofpediatric emergency room visits and hospitalizations. Morethan ever, nurses and nurse practitioners must have anunderstanding of the anatomy, pathophysiology, diagnosis and stateof the art treatments in pediatric respiratory disease as they areoften the first to come in contact with and recognize respiratoryproblems in children. Nursing Care in PediatricRespiratory Disease seeks to provide both nurses and nursepractitioners with this information in order to aid them inthe diagnosis and treatment of children suffering from acute andchronic respiratory disorders.
Nursing Care in Pediatric Respiratory Disease opens withan overview of the anatomy and physiology of the respiratorysystem, best practices for assessing respiratory symptoms inchildren, and common respiratory therapies and treatmentmethods.
