What are respiratory conditions?



Respiratory conditions affect the respiratory system which includes the nose, throat, windpipe and lungs causing breathing problems, retention of secretions, reduced exercise tolerance and increased risk of infection.

Respiratory conditions that affect toddlers may be lifelong conditions such as cystic fibrosis and asthma or result from infection by some virus or bacteria such as bronchiolitis.

Toddlers are more prone to getting respiratory infections as their lungs and airways are smaller and more vulnerable however, treatment advances mean they are normally treatable and usually not life threatening.
