Lung

Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel offers a complete range of pediatric pulmonary services provided by professionals who are committed to helping kids with lung conditions achieve their full potential in life.

We offer these services through our outpatient Pediatric Pulmonary Clinic and through our Pediatric Respiratory Therapy Program, which serves children in the hospital. We see patients both at Randall Children's Hospital and at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center.

What we offer

We offer consultation and management for the full spectrum of childhood lung disorders:

  • Asthma and difficult-to-control asthma
  • Symptoms related to exercise
  • Chronic lung disease of infancy
  • Mechanical ventilation in the home environment
  • Lung injury from swallowing disorders and aspiration
  • Recurrent pneumonia
  • Noisy breathing

We also offer pulmonary function testing, which includes:

  • Spirometry for preschoolers 
  • Exercise studies
  • Methacholine challenges

Additionally, we perform flexible bronchoscopy for evaluation of anatomical disorders in infants and children. We also have a close relationship with Teng Ji, M.D., a sleep disorders specialist who works with children.

Our pediatric pulmonary experts also work with pediatric medical practices seeking to improve their asthma programs.

Benefits of our service

We are readily available and can usually see new patients within three to five working days. For children who need hospital care, our new state-of-the-art facilities in Randall Children's Hospital, designed specifically for kids, offer a greatly improved patient experience.
