Note: Remember that the Westley Croup Score is typically used for research purposes; management is typically based on clinical signs and symptoms: (1) Consider bacterial tracheitis in an ill-appearing child with croup-like symptoms. (2) The vast majority (>80%) of children presenting to the ED with croup have mild disease; severe croup is rare (<1%).
