One of the challenges facing paediatric respirologists is the wide range of diseases from neonates to adolescents that come to us frequently. You will no doubt find support from the current issue.

Respiratory distress is very common in neonates, pre-terms or otherwise, and it is not surprising that respirologists are often called upon by our neonatologists. You will find a very helpful article by Dr. Steve Donn on the approach to neonatal respiratory distress other than respiratory distress syndrome.[1] For the treatment of respiratory distress, ventilators are often involved. Srisan andMeechaijaroenying [2] reported on the comparison of ventilator-associated pneumonia in children using disposable and non-disposable ventilator circuits, and it appeared that disposable circuits might not be cost-effective. For the older age group, asthma is the bread and butter for paediatric respirologists and eczema is very often associated with asthma. Hon et al.[3] reported a long-term follow-up detailing the association between asthma and eczema.

As 2018 approaches, I would like to wish all readers a very successful 2018.
