Description

Over the course of a career most physicians will manage only a handful of children through End Stage Lung Disease. Nonetheless, the approach of the physician to this challenge will have a profound impact on the children and families they encounter. Managing the end of life well can bring personal growth and professional satisfaction. In this review we highlight aspects of the Palliative Care approach and its integration with restorative and life-prolonging care. We review the role of active treatment, respiratory support, symptom management and psychosocial aspects of the management of End Stage Lung Disease.
