H2 - The mean post test scores of respiratory parameters is significantly higher than the mean pre test scores among children with Lower respiratory tract infections in experimental group 14 H3 - The mean post test scores of respiratory signs in experimental group is significantly lower than the mean post test scores in control group among children with Lower respiratory tract infections. H4 - The mean post test scores of respiratory parameters in experimental group is significantly higher than the mean post test scores in control group among children with Lower respiratory tract infections. H5 - There will be a significant association between post test scores of respiratory signs among children with Lower respiratory tract infections with their selected demographic variables in experimental group. ASSUMPTIONS: Children with Lower respiratory tract infections may have inadequate breathing pattern.
