Pediatric Pulmonologist

A pediatric pulmonologist is a doctor who has trained in pediatrics, as well as general pulmonology. This makes him or her specifically qualified to treat children, from birth to adulthood, with lung disease. The pulmonologist is usually involved in the entire process, from diagnosis and planning out a treatment to managing that treatment as the child grows. This is where pediatrics differs from adult pulmonology. Children need constant monitoring and adjustments of their medications as they grow, since even a few extra pounds of body weight can drastically change the effects of their medication.

Pediatric pulmonologists are responsible for finding out the cause of the lung problem, as well as treating it. In the case of allergies, where an irritant is causing problems with the child's lungs, then it is necessary to identify the origin of the issue so the patient can avoid it. This is all part and parcel of the job description that a pediatric pulmonologist follows.

The lung diseases treated by a pediatric pulmonologist include:
  • Asthma
  • Respiratory Difficulties
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Snoring
  • Chronic Cough
  • Recurring Pneumonia
In some cases, children may outgrow their lung problems, if they were relatively minor to begin with. Sleep apnea and asthma are two diseases that are often lessened with age. However, others, such as cystic fibrosis, are incurable and can only be managed to give the child a maximum life span, which is still drastically shortened. In each of these cases, it's necessary to have a pulmonologist who specializes in pediatrics so that the needs of a growing child with a lung disorder can be met accordingly.
