    00:00 So, in review, the pediatric and adult airways differ anatomically and physiologically.

    00:06 The airway diameter can be easily compromised in pediatric patients.

    00:11 The upper airway anatomy can put children at increased risk for respiratory compromise.

    00:16 Due to an immature system, and large organs, infants compensate by increasing their respiratory rate in the setting of respiratory distress.

    00:23 Surfactant can be administered to premature babies to help expand the alveoli and prevent atelectasis.

    00:29 It's important to understand these differences to successfully manage a pediatric patient with a respiratory condition.

    00:35 Thank you for watching this lecture on the differences between the pediatric and adult respiratory systems.
