What is the syndromic approach to acute respiratory tract disorders?

This is a simple way of using important clinical signs to classify and manage acute respiratory tract disorders. It is based on what you and the mother observe (see and hear) in the child. In the older child, the history (symptoms) given by the child is also important. This is the method used by IMCI (Integrated Management of Childhood Illness) for primary care management.

The two main signs of lower respiratory tract disorders are:

  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
