Pediatric pulmonology is a field of medicine that treats kids with respiratory problems. Respiratory infections and other respiratory problems constitute one of the common reasons for OPD visits and hospital admissions. Timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment is necessary.
The primary emphasis of pediatric pulmonology is diagnosing and caring for children with respiratory problems. The common respiratory problems include
- Acute and chronic cough
- Allergy and Asthma
- Persistent and recurrent pneumonia
- Airway problems
- Pulmonary aspiration
- Foreign body aspiration
- Sleep apneas
- Lung malformations
- Cystic fibrosis
- Breathing difficulty of various causes
- Chronic lung disease
- Pulmonary arterial hypertension
We do various advanced investigations and procedures including pulmonary function tests, flexible bronchoscopy, rigid bronchoscopy, foreign body removal, and EBUS biopsy. We have a skilled group of paediatricians and a pediatric pulmonologist who identify and treat children with lung disorders. We have a well-equipped PICU team, where we take care of sick children requiring respiratory and cardiac support. We have experienced pediatric surgeons and anaesthesia team who take care of children who need surgery.
Our pediatric registrars and nurses, who provide 24-hour care for the kids, make up our support staff.
