Pediatric Pulmonology

Pediatric pulmonologists offer a full range of clinical services and diagnostic assessments, including sleep studies, bronchoscopy, and complete pulmonary function and exercise testing. They study the efficacy of standard treatments to determine optimal therapies and medications for the treatment of children’s breathing disorders.

Brenner Children’s offers specialty clinics for children with asthma, a multidisciplinary clinic for children with sleep disorders, and a nationally accredited adult and pediatric Cystic Fibrosis care and research center. Members of the section serve on State and National professional boards, editorial boards of multiple medical journals, and a large number of research and clinical committees.

Current research is focused on understanding how asthma develops and changes over time, and how to treat it more effectively in children. Wake Forest Baptist Health is now involved in many large studies of asthma in children, involving other leading institutions across the US, and funded by the National Institutes of Health. Researchers are currently seeking children, ages 1-18 with asthma, recurrent wheezing, or reactive airways disease to participate in these studies.

All of the studies currently taking place at Wake Forest Baptist Health, are using medications which are already approved and widely used in children; the focus is to determine which ones are most effective.
