Description

Bronchiolitis is a common lung infection in children and the leading cause of hospitalization in children under 2.

The Children’s Mercy Respiratory Outpatient Clinic provides 24/7 outpatient treatment for young infants who have been referred by their primary care provider following assessment and diagnosis of bronchiolitis.

Pediatric registered respiratory therapists provide respiratory assessments and airway clearance as well as educational resources with the goal of reducing hospital admissions and readmissions.

Therapists follow the hospital’s Bronchiolitis Care Process Model to assess and provide treatment.

Patrice Johnson, MBA, the Director of Respiratory Care at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, is here to explain The Children’s Mercy Respiratory Outpatient Clinic.
