Abstract

Conditioning in respiratory distress in childhood requires a rapid evaluation of severity based on clinical examination in order to immediately start helpful care to improve respiratory status. Oximetry measurement is now integrated in this initial evaluation determining oxygen therapy. Etiologic orientation, quick and clinic, is precised by family questions. Adapted therapeutic will begin and we know that most frequently etiologies are: croup, bronchiolitis and asthma attack.
