Respiratory Disorders – Pediatric Nursing

by Paula Ruedebusch, Elizabeth Stone, PHD, RN, CPEN, CHSE, FAEN

Like adults, infants and children experience a wide variety of respiratory conditions, both congenital and acquired. This course offers an overview of common respiratory disorders affecting pediatric populations, including pathophysiology, presentation, and treatment.

An understanding of respiratory anatomy and physiology is needed to fully comprehend the nuance of caring for pediatric clients with respiratory disorders.

Although not every nurse will care for pediatric clients in their practice, respiratory disorders initiated in childhood can have lasting impacts into adulthood, making understanding these conditions beneficial to all nurses.
