What are the signs of breathing difficulty?

The major signs are :

  • stridor
  • indrawing of the lower chest wall (recession)
  • wheeze
  • fast breathing (tachypnoea)
  • shortness of breath with grunting, nasal flaring, head nodding and refusal to feed.

These signs of breathing difficulty suggest that the child’s breathing difficulty is becoming progressively more severe and could lead to respiratory distress.
