It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you our newly established Journal which will serve as the platform to disseminate the latest information from the basic research to the most up-to-date clinical practice in the field of pediatric respirology and critical care medicine. We aspire to become one of the best international journals in our discipline and the source of most trusted information for our clinical practice. Members of the Editorial Board recognize that there is an unmet need regarding the possible international journals for papers in our field. This journal is the joint efforts of the Asian Paediatric Pulmonology Society, Hong Kong Society of Paediatric Respirology and Allergy, and the Taiwan Society of Pediatric Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine. Instead of publishing individual journal from each society, we believe our joint effort will result in a journal of higher quality attracting interesting and informative papers from around the world. Initially, there will be 4 issues per year. Pediatric Respirology and Critical Care Medicine accepts submissions of original articles, editorials and commentaries, review articles, and instructive case reports embracing studies of both basic and translational research in our discipline. In this inaugural issue, Professor Andrew Bush's review article “Asthma: what's new, and what should be old but is not!” is a must read review for all pediatricians who treat so many people with asthma in their clinical practice. Prediction of asthma among the preschool wheezers has been one of the most important areas of research. Dr. Ng and his colleagues studied a large group of children who presented with wheezing illness at a young age and provide convincing data to show the possible predictive factors for subsequent diagnosis of asthma by 6 years of age. Dr. Yu and colleagues reported a large cross-sectional study showing the important relationship of severe allergic rhinitis and exhaled nitric oxide level. Abnormal chest wall protuberance is a common reason for referral for assessment. Dr. Wong and his colleagues reported a very informative series of 12 patients describing the detailed clinical and radiological findings responsible for the abnormal protuberance. I am sure these 4 articles will be helpful for your clinical practice and provide inspirations for your research. We look forward to reading your submission to our Journal in the near future.
