This course will focus on conditions and disorders that impact the pediatric pulmonary system. It is vital to understand typical pulmonary development prior to the start of this course. Material will begin with diagnostic tests and measures and move into commonly seen pediatric pulmonary conditions. Conditions will be discussed based on age range from infant to adolescent. Emphasis will then be given to pulmonary equipment, including oxygen devices commonly seen in various practice settings in pediatrics, and medications and implications for physical therapy plan of care will be analyzed. The course will end with appropriate development of interventions for this population.
