1

cough

brainstem reflex

2

cough receptors

middle ear, sinuses, pericardium, diphragm, phaynx, larynx, trachea, major bronchi

3

phases of cough

inspiration
compression
exhalation

4

chronic cough in ped

cough more than 3-4 weeks**

5

cough after eating

overfeeding - decreased with less food
GERD - if with vomiting
TEF - no vomiting - worse with feeding

6

cough with cyanosis not relieved by O2

requires thorough cardiac evaluation

possible R to L shunt

7

cough with tachypnea and fever

sepsis

8

RSV

infants at higher risk
-preterm, cyanotic heart disease, immunodeficient

9

staccato cough first few months

chlamydia trachomatis pneumonia

10

spells with apnea

pertussis

11

wet cough

bronchiectasis

12

rigid bronchoscopy

to see foreign body AND remov\\e it

flexible - cannot remove

13

sore throat, fever, HA, no cough or rhinorrhea

strep pharyngitis

work up with rapid strep and back up culture if negative

NO COUGH OR RHINORRHEA

PE - exudative pharyngitis, tender anterior cervical lymph nodes, scarlatiniform rash, pastias lines

14

drooling, dysphagia, dysphonia, dyspnea, tripod position

epiglottitis

examine airway under anesthesia***

can compromised airway, don't be stupid

15

barking cough, inspiratory stridor

croup
-paryngotracheitis

cause - parainfluenza, influenza, RSV, adenovirus

steeple sign on neck Xray

16

croup tx

inhaled racemic epinephrine
-reduce stridor within 30 minutes
-most immediate benefit

hyaline membane disease

21

CXR for respiratory distress

hyperinflation
air bronchograms
diffuse granularity

can look like group B strep as well
-so give antibiotics

22

prematurity

decreased surfactant
hypoxemia and CO2 retention
acidosis, hypoperfusion
endo and epithelial damage

fibrin > hyaline membrane formation

23

tx CMV

gangciclovir

24

CMV

DNA herpesvirus

massive enlargement of affected cells with inclusions in cells

25

26

transmission of CMV

prenatal or natal infection (cervical/vaginal infections

27

breast milk

sheds CMV

also blood transfusion and organ transplants
