Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine
Pediatric pulmonologists at Johns Hopkins have a long history in treating infants, adolescents and young adults with lung disease.
The physicians in the Division of Pulmonary Medicine have the expertise to evaluate and treat a wide variety of problems, including asthma, acute and chronic pulmonary infections, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, sleep-disordered breathing, chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, dysfunctional swallowing, end-stage lung disease, interstitial lung diseases, lung failure and breathing abnormalities. The 18-year-old division's goal has always been the same: to provide comprehensive medical care to children with lung disease.
The Johns Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Center and the Cystic Fibrosis Research Development Center are dedicated to the study and treatment of cystic fibrosis. Leading researchers direct laboratory-based investigations to better understand the disease process. Clinical trials are conducted to test new therapeutics.
The Pediatric Sleep and Breathing Disorders Center is dedicated to the care of children from infancy to adolescence thought to be at risk for abnormal breathing during sleep or at risk for sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy and disturbed sleeping patterns. Active clinical research protocols are focused on improving our understanding of factors that contribute to sleeping and breathing problems in children and developing new approaches to therapy and studies of the long-term consequences of abnormal breathing during sleep on daytime behavior and performance.
Consultation services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
