Respiratory Distress in the Pediatric Patient: Anatomy, Physiology, and Breath Sounds  -  Produced by Medcom-Trainex  © 2021  -  Full video (14:36)

The immature respiratory system is very different from that of an adult. Respiratory pathologies are among the major problems affecting the health and well-being of children. These issues can be due to infection, allergy, trauma, or congenital anomalies. This program examines the differences between an immature respiratory system and an adult's, presents normal pediatric breath sounds, and examines adventitious pediatric breath sounds and their possible causes.


Respiratory Distress in the Pediatric Patient: Assessment and Intervention -   Produced by Medcom-Trainex  © 2021  -  Full video (17:43)

Respiratory pathologies due to infection, allergy, trauma, or congenital anomalies are one of the major problems affecting the health and well-being of children. Signs of distress must be recognized and assessed promptly. If distress is not promptly identified and interventions begun, respiratory failure and even cardiopulmonary arrest can follow. This program teaches nurses to identify important signs of pediatric respiratory distress, demonstrates steps of a pediatric respiratory assessment, and shows the different signs for mild respiratory distress and moderate to acute respiratory distress. It also considers red flags that can indicate acute pediatric distress.
