This video illustrates fast breathing (tachypnea) and how to count breaths (a technique for identifying children with pneumonia) for clinicians in low resource settings, and reflects best practice in these settings. The goal of this resource is to increase awareness and comfort level in recognizing children with signs and symptoms of pneumonia in order to promote timely treatment.

This video was developed by the Pneumonia Innovations Team, a global community network that focuses efforts on increasing awareness and mobilizing resources to combat childhood pneumonia, especially in resource-limited areas where deaths related to childhood pneumonia are common.
