What is a Pediatric Pulmonologist
A pediatric pulmonologist is a pediatric subspecialist who treats children with lung problems, which means treating a common condition like asthma that affects nearly 10 percent of people in the world or a rare lung disease like cystic fibrosis. We treat newborns to 18-year-olds. My patients could be preemies with underdeveloped lungs and infants who need oxygen or life support at home, as well as young athletes with breathing problems. I help children with tracheostomy tubes, children with congenitally abnormal breathing tubes and children with severe or recurrent pneumonias and many other conditions. I also conduct sleep studies for childhood sleep disorders, run a monthly pediatric tuberculosis clinic to screen for the disease and offer a vaccine clinic for RSV, a common virus that affects most children but can cause complications for higher-risk babies and children.
