RAPID ADVICE ON PULMONARY CARE IN PEDIATRIC COVID-19
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory tract infection caused by a newly emergent coronavirus. There are few data on the clinical presentation of COVID-19 in specific populations, such as infants and children. While clinical data available to date are based largely on the disease experience in China, Europe, and the United States,
the pediatric literature on COVID-19 is still in its infancy. Acquisition of new data in the regional, national, and international guidance is still rapidly evolving.
This guidance was made from meager resources available in children and will serve as a
foundation for optimized respiratory supportive care for pediatric COVID-19 patients. The purpose of this document is to complement with the WHO, CDC and the other subspecialty guidelines in providing respiratory care for children with acute respiratory infections when COVID-19 is suspected. This guidance should be used alongside with
infection prevention control guideline
