Sometimes it’s a Zebra! Identifying and Managing Uncommon Causes of Chronic Respiratory Symptoms for the Experienced Clinician

1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is $10 for NAPNAP Members. For non-members, this continuing education activity rate is $20. This course is a record presentation for NAPNAP's 2024 National Conference. 

We have all heard the old saying, “When you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras”. But as we know, sometimes it is a zebra! While many of the conditions pediatric providers see are common, as an experienced provider it is important that we are also able to identify uncommon and rare pulmonary conditions. In such conditions, early identification and early intervention are vital to ensuring the best outcomes. This presentation is geared towards the experienced pediatric provider and will review the diagnosis and management of rare pulmonary conditions including, but not limited to, Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia, immunodeficiency, Cystic Fibrosis and WHIM syndrome.
