Recommendations

RachaelLynnwood, Wa01.29.14
Dr. Yung has been my daughter's cardiologist since 2004. Dr. Yung works closely with my daughter's pediatrician to provide the best medical care possible. She has always listened to and considered my input with regards to care options and that has always meant the most to me. She is dedicated to the ever evolving Cardiac field and most dedicated to the individual needs of patients and their families.

Research Description

My primary research interest is in pulmonary hypertension. Our center is a member of national and international registries that seek to understand more about pediatric pulmonary hypertension. We participate in industry-sponsored clinical trials of new pulmonary hypertension medications. I have an investigator-initiated study looking at the use of inhaled iloprost in children in the critical care units.

I also collaborate with colleagues in interventional cardiology, nephrology and general pediatrics who are interested in exercise related studies.
