Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine
Pulmonary medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lungs and respiratory system. Our nationally recognized Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine program cares for babies, children and teens with conditions that affect their breathing. Our team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, respiratory therapists and a dietitian committed to providing complete and compassionate care for your child. We work closely with experts in many of Seattle Children's clinics, including Otolaryngology, Rehabilitation Medicine, Radiology and Sleep Disorders.
Our clinic has special clinics dedicated to treating children with cystic fibrosis, sleep disorders and asthma. We also provide general evaluations for children who have symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, recurrent pneumonia, wheezing, chest pain and problems with doing exercise. In all of our work, we focus on education so that you and your child can learn how to best manage your child's condition today while planning for the future.
