A comprehensive, patient-centered text providing up to date information about the contemporary management of children with respiratory conditions.

Children’s Respiratory Nursing is structured in four user-friendly sections:

*The first section provides a general background for children’s respiratory nursing.
*Section two explores the various investigations that aid diagnosis and treatment; such as assessment of defects in airflow and lung volume, oxygen therapy and long term ventilation.
*Section three looks at respiratory infection and provides an overview of the common infections in children with reference to national and local guidelines.
*The final section considers the practical issues that impact on children’s nurses - the transition from children to adult services, legal and ethical issues and the professional communication skills needed for dealing with children and their families.
*This practical text is essential reading for all children’s nurses who have a special interest with respiratory conditions and would like to develop a level of understanding of the special management required in the specialty.
