COVID-19 in Children and Altered Inflammatory Responses
The COVID-19 pandemic while affecting all age-groups appears to be less severe in children. In this journal we have international contributions relaying experiences from paediatricians across the world. Patients under 18 years only account for 2% of severely affected patients. However children can still be vectors if they are asymptomatic and shedding the virus. Dong et al described a cohort of 2143 children with suspected infection. In 34% infection was confirmed but there was little critical illness and one death. There appeared to be proportionally more severe illness in infants, a result that could have be confounded b...

What Causes Respiratory Failure?
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...
