Pulmonology

The Pulmonology Clinic at Al Jalila Children’s is committed to improving the health of infants, children, and adolescents with respiratory problems by providing quality diagnostic and clinical services.

We provide a comprehensive consultation and follow-up on a wide variety of complex respiratory conditions including problematic or poorly controlled asthma, bronchiectasis, congenital lung anomalies, cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease as well as a range of sleep disorders. Our evaluation also includes diagnostic imaging, flexible bronchoscopy, pulmonary function testing, exercise stress testing, and allergy skin prick testing.

We offer specialised services for a variety of sleep-disordered breathing and for children requiring non-invasive positive pressure ventilation such as Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure (BPAP).

We also provide, in conjunction with other subspecialities, consultation to children with neuro-muscular and airway problems.
