Croup by Stewart Harsant and Taylor Fischer, PA-Cs


Today's episode is on Croup- just in time for the middle of the croup season.  Your ED may even be filled with kids with a barking cough as we speak.  Today's episode was written by Taylor Fischer and Stewart Harsant, two physician assistants who have done an excellent job of summarizing this common pediatric disease process.  This episode will review the diagnosis of croup, how to risk stratify kids with croup, and how to treat and disposition them properly.  Most of the time, kids with croup do just fine with a little cold night air and some steroids but this episode will also help you figure out which kids are sicker and need much more attention and care.
