On admission, the physical examination shows a febrile patient (38.2[degrees]C) with continuous chest pain, that increases with motion, no emphysema, auscultatory bilateral soft rough breathing sounds on a hemodynamically stable patient (blood pressure 140/90mmHg, arterial pulse 85bpm, oxygen saturation 98%).
After 5 minutes of rest in the supine position, a vascular Doppler (DV-601, Marted[R], Sao Paulo, Brazil) was placed in the tibial artery of the participants in order to obtain the auscultatory pulse.
The auscultatory method of Blood Pressure (B.P) measurement was used and B.P taken in rested sitting position by mercury sphygmomanometer and Littman stethoscope.
The charts of infants admitted to KEH with a diagnosis of LRTI between 1 January 2015 and 31 December 2015 were reviewed.* The WHO definition of LRTI used refers to an outcome definition incorporating at least one specific LRTI sign, reported by a caregiver or the study personnel (fast or difficult breathing, chest wall indrawing) and/or abnormal auscultatory findings (crackles/ crepitations or bronchial breath sounds).
