Children’s Respiratory Nursing is a comprehensive, patient-centered text providing up to date information about the contemporary management of children with respiratory conditions. It looks at acute and chronic respiratory conditions in both primary and secondary health care sectors and explores the subject from a child and family focused perspective.

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.
