What Are Causes of Childhood Interstital Lung Disease?
Discussion Interstitial lung disease in children (chILD) is less understood than adult interstitial lung disease (ILD) and is rare. Prevalence is ~ 0.13 to 16.2 per 100,000 children under age 17 years. chILD is an general term for respiratory disorders that are heterogeneous, chronic and impair lung function. While some define diffuse parenchymal lung disease (DPLD) separately, the term ILD usually encompases DPLD. chILD has variable definitions and is “usually diagnosed if three of the following features are present: 1) respiratory symptoms (cough, rapid and/or difficult breathing, and exercise intolerance), 2) res...

How to Remove Foreign Bodies?
Discussion Living in the world makes the human body susceptible to foreign bodies. Orifices are particularly inviting for children to explore and see how it feels if the opening is touched by their hands or an object. Small objects are easily inserted or even just retained (such as toilet tissue in the genital area, or tissue in the nose). The mouth is particularly inviting to explore objects with as oral sensations are paramount to survival even at birth. Food can be considered a foreign body and often acts like one when stuck in the respiratory or gastrointestinal tract but is necessary to sustain life. When someone says...
