The Pediatric Pulmonary Division provides a broad range of clinical and diagnostic services to infants, children and adolescents with acute and chronic respiratory disorders. The Division uses a team approach and partners with families to provide comprehensive care. Conditions treated include asthma, cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea, sleep disorders, stridor, upper airway obstruction, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, bronchiectasis, recurrent pneumonia, chronic or recurrent cough and wheezing.
Since 1979, the Division has been continuously awarded one of seven federally funded Pediatric Pulmonary Center training grants to provide interdisciplinary training to provide leaders in the care of children with pulmonary disorders. In addition to the pediatric medical faculty, the division faculty includes two pediatric nutritionists, three pediatric nurses, a pediatric social worker, a pharmacist, a respiratory therapist and a family partner.
