A paediatric /Pediatric pulmonologist is a specialist in treating lung disorders in babies and in children. A paediatric /Pediatric pulmonologist is responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, and even the management of the treatment plan of the baby as he grows into a child and even when he becomes an adult. This is because babies with lung disorders need constant monitoring, for which these doctors are specifically trained.
Paediatric pulmonologists practice in places like children’s hospitals, university medical centres, and community hospitals. A paediatrician may refer your child to a paediatric pulmonologist for help with your child’s breathing problems.
