Abstract Respiratory disease and acute respiratory difficulties are life threatening problems frequently met in paediatric medicine. Since parents often call their doctor first, telephone triage is important in the correct management of children with respiratory distress. On arrival in the office or the emergency department, a child with dyspnea should rapidly be assessed for signs of severity and respiratory compromise. Oxygenation and early initiation of specific treatment are priorities in the management. Only a simple and rigorous clinical process, based on the essential, will reach all these objectives without delay. As soon as the child's situation is stabilised, the doctor decides what are the appropriate modalities for transfer. This article aims at reviewing these different issues.
