When children have trouble breathing, they can suffer in so many ways. It can be hard to concentrate at school, challenging to keep up with sports or activities, and difficult to get a good night’s sleep. For some kids, severe breathing problems can even be life-threatening.
Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital paediatric pulmonology experts are specially trained to care for children with breathing disorders. The pulmonologists diagnose and treat a comprehensive range of conditions that affect the lungs and respiratory system. In many cases, the paediatricians can help children and their families pinpoint the cause of conditions like allergies and asthma, and learn to prevent or minimize future problems. To diagnose pulmonary conditions the Paediatricians use a variety of advanced tests and procedures, including allergy skin Testing, Pulmonary Function testing and Bronchoscopy. We provide inpatient and outpatient care for children with respiratory conditions.
