Pediatric Pulmonology

by Brian Alverson, MD

Pediatric pulmonology is the field of study dealing with lung or respiratory disorders in children. Pediatric pulmonologists offer diagnoses and comprehensive care for the full range of lung and respiratory disorders. These include genetic disorders like cystic fibrosis, which often requires multidisciplinary management. Lung pathology in children can lead to significant morbidity, so close surveillance and a deep understanding of child physiology and anatomy are important for providing appropriate care to these patients.

Dr Alverson is an amazing lecturer. I'm watching this lecture series again now that I've finished my pediatrics course simply for the fun of it.
