Pediatric pulmonologists at The Children’s Hospital at Saint Francis provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of lung disease in children, as well as cutting-edge research into many aspects of pulmonary disease.
Services offered include pulmonary function testing
(PFT) and flexible fiber optic bronchoscopy (FFB). PFT is a non-invasive test that can be done in various ways to work best for children of various ages. A FFB allows pulmonologists to look inside the lungs with a fiber optic scope. This more invasive procedure is not surgery, but does require sedation.
