Dr. Rashmi Kumar delivers a talk at the Pan African Thoracic Society (PATS) conference.

Dr. Rashmi Kumar was invited to give a talk at the Pan African Thoracic Society (PATS) conference.

Her talk on ‘Managing Life Threatening Pediatric Respiratory Infections in Resource Limited Settings’, focused on an important fact that empirical treatment for severe pneumonia and ventilator-associated pneumonias, the very common and severe respiratory conditions treated in the intensive care units, accounted for approximately 50% of antibiotic use in PICUs. Hence, close follow-up and early diagnosis of Severe Pneumonias and Ventilator-Associated Pneumonias, progressing to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is extremely valuable for better outcomes.
