Pediatric Pulmonology

Session 7: Pediatric Pulmonology

Pediatric Pulmonology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory and lung disorders in infants, children, and adolescents. This includes conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and sleep apnea, among others. Pediatric pulmonologists are experts in the management of respiratory problems in children, including those with complex medical needs. They work with a team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care that is tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Treatment may include medication, breathing therapies, and lifestyle changes, among other interventions, with the goal of improving lung function and quality of life for the child.
