Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine

an infant gets comprehensive pulmonary carePediatric pulmonologists at Johns Hopkins have a long history in treating infants, adolescents and young adults with lung disease.

The mission of the Eudowood Divison of Pediatric Respiratory Sciences is to improve the health of children with respiratory disorders by providing exemplary patient and family centered care, performing research to understand the mechanisms of disease, develop new therapies and train the next generation of health care providers. Our physicians 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 is dedicated to the study and treatment of cystic fibrosis. A team of multidisciplinary provides expert clinical care. 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 with 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 sleep and breathing problems in children and developing new approaches to therapy for the long-term consequences of abnormal breathing during sleep on daytime behavior and performance. Sleep centers are located at sites throughout Maryland.

Consultation services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
