This module will discuss respiratory syncytial virus, bronchiolitis, viral croup and associated croup syndromes, epiglottitis, pertussis, viral and nonviral pneumonia, and prevention of pneumonia in the pediatric age group.


The purpose of this pediatric respiratory infection continuing education course is to inform clinicians about viral and bacterial respiratory infections that affect children so that they will be able to recognize the diseases and provide the most effective care. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate among several pediatric respiratory infections
  • Describe the clinical manifestations of each respiratory infection
  • Discuss the methods used to make a definitive diagnosis for each respiratory infection
  • Explain clinical care for each respiratory infection
  • Identify infection control practices to prevent the nosocomial spread of respiratory infection
