    • Abstract:
      Chapter 6 of the handbook "Manual of Pediatric Intensive Care" is presented. This chapter discusses the initial diagnosis related to pulmonary complications. It notes that most of the time, pulmonary exacerbation does not require treatment in an intensive care unit (ICU) setting, but it may be warranted when exacerbations are severe and/or accompanied by other complications including respiratory failure (ARF), massive hemoptysis or pneumothorax. Most commonly used drugs for pulmonary complications are listed including Colistin, Tobramycin and Vancomycin.
