Re: Reactive airway disease?

RAD is another term for asthma. It is usually diagnosed with smaller children b/c asthma cannot be properly diagnosed on a smaller child.
My one sond has RAD and breathing treatments help him dramatically. My dd also has asthma.
When your child is old enough to be able to perform a PFT (pulmonary function test) it is the best way to determine true asthma.
If you need help with anything please feel free to pm or email me. I have been dealing with this for many years. Also my DH is a Registered Respiratory Therapist
