Our System's pediatric pulmonologists employ their years of experience
and access to the latest in diagnostic equipment and technology to treat
children with lung conditions. Our facilties are equiped to evaluate and
treat infants, children, and adolescents for both chronic and acute respiratory
conditions. Our extensive health network and multidisciplinary approach
allows access to a full team of pediatric specialists supported by New
Jersey's largest health care system.
For children with mild, moderate or severe asthma, we provide diagnosis
and treatment and teach the patient and his/her family how to manage and
control the disease. Children with acute, long-lasting cough are often
referred to our physicians for evaluation of this often difficult to diagnose
problem. We diagnose and treat all forms of pediatric respiratory infections
as well as recurrent and persistant pneumonias.
Our pulmonologists work with Neonatal Intensive Care Units in our hospitals
and surrounding hospitals to evaluate and treat premature infants who
are at risk for developing long-term respiratory problems includng chronic
lung disease (CLD) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). For those babies
who go home from the hospital on heart monitors or respiratory monitors,
we follow their progress and assist the patient's neonatologist and/or
pediatrician in their care. Our
Cystic Fibrosis Centers are among the select few cystic fibrosis centers in the state of New Jersey
and among 115 centers that have been accredited by the national Cystic
national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our centers provide a full array
of services for children, including transitional care and adult care to
the ever growing number of patients who survive into adulthood.
