Presented by: Daxa Clarke, MD, Amy Sanderson, MD, Lucinda Lo, MD

Respiratory-related illnesses are common among the pediatric and neonatal population. However, the nuanced clinical criteria, treatment, and clinical implications of these various childhood afflictions can prove challenging for CDI specialists. Join three expert physicians steeped in CDI—Amy Sanderson, MD, Lucinda Lo, MD, and Daxa Clarke, MD—to parse out query opportunities and clinical indicators for acute respiratory distress syndrome, respiratory failure, pneumonia, COVID-19, and asthma.

During this webinar, participants will learn how to identify unique pediatric scenarios, the value of capturing these diagnoses for quality-of-care concerns, and how to better engage pediatric physicians through effective documentation review. 

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

  • Describe the difference between ARDS and ARF in the pediatric population
  • Identify clinical indicators related to asthma conditions and the importance of capturing these conditions for severity of illness and risk of mortality
  • Define pneumonia varieties common in the pediatric population
  • Describe factors to engage physicians in clinical documentation related to common pediatric respiratory concerns
  • Identify COVID-19-related query opportunities specific to the pediatric population
