Level of Program: 

Respiratory failure: It’s one of the most challenging diagnoses for those working in pediatric clinical documentation improvement to capture. In the pediatric setting, clinical indicators typically acceptable in the adult population simply don’t apply, and coding rules require CDI specialists to capture documentation that can seem counterintuitive or even alien to pediatricians.

In this 90-minute program, expert speakers Valerie Bica, BSN, RN, CPN, and J. Douglas Campbell, MD, FAAP, MHA, will review the documentation trouble spots and offer tips for educating and querying physicians.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the differences between acute respiratory failure and acute respiratory distress versus acute respiratory distress syndrome 
  • Discuss treatment and diagnosis differences between pediatric and adult populations related to respiratory failure 
  • Provide education to physicians regarding how their respiratory failure documentation affects hospital quality metrics 
  • Discuss possible query criteria
