At some point during childhood, 80 to 90% of all children have a breathing problem. ‘Take a Deep Breath’ is a comprehensive, accessible, and indispensible guide for parents, caregivers, teachers and healthcare providers on the subject of children’s breathing issues.
From the uppermost part of the airway — the nose – to the lowermost part — the lungs – Dr Nina Shapiro explains which problems are truly worrisome, and which are actually normal stages in a child’s growth. ‘Take a Deep Breath’ will enable you to do just that: take a deep breath, and get a better, clearer understanding of what’s going on when a child breathes in and out.
“Take a Deep Breath is a breath of fresh air for every parent and doctor who cares about children. Dr Nina Shapiro cuts through what we need to know, and reassuringly tells us what we don’t need to worry about. A must read for every parent and grandparent.”
NBC News Chief Medical Editor
