Why are children particularly prone to respiratory problems? What nursing care is relevant for different conditions? Each chapter discusses a specific respiratory problem as well as looking at problems related to a particular age-group. The discussion of problems includes the clinical features, diagses and nursing management as well as the complications of specific conditions. The nursing care is presented in the form of problem-solving care-plans. This book is essential reading for paediatric nurses, nurses taking a Sick Children's qualification and those undertaking post-basic paediatric nursing courses.
