Pulmonary Rehabilitation Strategies For Children With Residual Lung Disease From ARDS

Despite growing evidence suggesting that ARDS leads to significant morbidity and mortality following hospital discharge, little is known about the long-term pulmonary sequelae among children that survive ARDS. In this podcast, we review the epidemiology, clinical features and conventional/non-conventional treatment options for pediatric ARDS as well as some of the potential rehabilitation strategies to mitigate some of the short- and long-term morbidities that affect survivors.
