Respiratory failure is the most common cause of cardiac arrest in children. Failure occurs when the respiratory system is unable to exchange gases in order to meet the body’s metabolic need. The underlying etiology may occur within one or multiple organ systems, including the nervous, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and respiratory systems, which participate in the process of respiration. This module will review some of the most common respiratory emergencies in pediatric patients.
