Respiratory Conditions

Respiratory conditions can include a variety of problems, including colds, flu, runny noses, and coughs. Most children will develop at least six to eight colds, or other respiratory illnesses a year. This number may even be higher in children who attend daycare.

There are many different respiratory disorders that require clinical care of a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
