Discussion The respiratory system is a complex system. The upper airways must remain patient. The lower airways must interface with the vascular system. The musculoskeletal system must provide mechanical function and the central nervous system must provide overall control. Respiratory failure occurs when the overall system cannot support the body’s necessarily ventilation, oxygenation or both. Children are at higher risk of respiratory failure. They have few intrinsic lung parenchyma problems, but have very small airways that increase the airflow resistance by themselves but then have to contend with problems such as...

CONCLUSIONS: HBoV can be detected alone and in co-infection respiratory samples of children with an acute respiratory tract infection. A cause-effect relationship between HBoV and respiratory infection is not clear, so further studies are needed to clarify this point. PMID: 31776891 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: The patterns of viral infections associated wiht the diagnois of ‘asthma’ and ‘wheezing illness’ are largely the same. Proper diagnosis of asthma may lead to proper asthma treatment. Most children with pneumonia were found to have a viral etiologies. Rapid detection of viral infections may help to minimize unnecessary antibiotic prescritption.

Conclusion: Increased concentrations of a range of ambient air pollutants is associated with increased risk of unscheduled HRU for asthma and pneumonia.

Pulmonary cysts are frequently encountered at thoracic computed tomography, often incidentally detected. For patients older than 40 years of age, a few pulmonary cysts found at thoracic computed tomography can be a normal finding. The etiologies of pulmonary cysts are numerous, and cysts should be distinguished from other focal lucent lung lesions, such as the numerous causes of cavitary lung disease, bronchiectasis, honeycombing, and emphysema. When pulmonary cysts are encountered in older children or adult patients, a number of specific disorders, collectively referred to as diffuse cystic lung diseases, merit considerat...

Publication date: August 2019Source: Academic Pediatrics, Volume 19, Issue 6Author(s): Ripal Patel, Melissa Schafer, Heidi Ochs, John Andrake, John Pires Ervoes, Eric GershonBackgroundBronchiolitis is the number one cause of hospitalization in children under 2 years of age. AAP guidelines emphasize that only supportive care is needed for bronchiolitis. Data obtained from our institution showed poor adherence to AAP guidelines. This project was undertaken with the goal of improving compliance with these guidelines.Aim StatementOur aim was to reduce length of stay (LOS) for admitted low risk patients with bronchiolitis, age ...

Authors: Kim H, Kwon GE, Kim YH, Callaway Z, Han YS, Seo JJ, Jiao F, Kim CK Abstract Objective: Eosinophil-derived neurotoxin (EDN) is associated with recurrent wheezing episodes after bronchiolitis, childhood asthma, and allergic rhinitis. We investigated if there is a measurable difference between serum EDN levels in children with wheezing and non-wheezing respiratory infections. Methods: 171 children who visited a university hospital with respiratory infections were enrolled in the study. Subjects were divided into two groups: wheezing (n = 46) and non-wheezing (n = 125). Serum EDN le...

BOSTON (CBS) — When your child is coughing, it can be hard, even for a doctor, to distinguish between a cold or something more serious but researchers in Australia were able to reliably pinpoint the cause of a child’s cough using a smartphone app. Kids cough all the time, often from the common cold or seasonal allergies but sometimes it’s more serious like pneumonia. Kids may be misdiagnosed or treated unnecessarily with antibiotics or other medications because it’s often hard to tell what their coughing is about. Researchers were able to train speech recognition technology to recognize different co...

CONCLUSIONS: HFNC is a safe, effective, feasible option for non-invasive ventilation of children with respiratory illnesses in a resource-limited L2 setting. A greater proportion of children with lower respiratory tract infections in the HFNC-availability group than in the pre-HFNC group required support, but the intervention reduced the bed pressure on L3. Improved ways to identify HFNC failures would be beneficial. PMID: 31084694 [PubMed - in process]
