Pediatric Sleep and Breathing Disorders Center

Sleep disorders and breathing disorders during sleep are among the most common issues parents deal with in childhood. These disorders may result in learning and behavioral disabilities, as well as long term pulmonary, endocrine and heart disease. At the Pediatric Sleep and Breathing Disorders Center, we perform the full range of studies required to diagnose sleep disorders, including daytime and overnight studies.

Pediatric Aerodigestive Program

Our Pediatric Pulmonology team is part of Weill Cornell Medicine's Pediatric Aerodigestive Program -- a multidisciplinary program bringing Pediatric Pulmonology, Pediatric Gastroenterology and Pediatric Otolaryngology (ENT) specialists together to provide coordinated, single-location care for children with conditions related to the aerodigestive tract.

What Sets Us Apart

  • We are affiliated with Komansky Children's Hospital at NewYork-Presbyterian, the #1 ranked children's hospital in New York City on the 2018-2019 US News & World Report Best Children's Hospitals survey.
  • Our Pediatric Sleep Lab is dedicated exclusively to children and adolescents of all ages, including infants.

Diagnosis & Treatment

Pulmonary Function Test

To diagnose and manage a child's respiratory disease, doctors often rely on respiratory function testing: painless and noninvasive tests that assess various aspects of lung function including the size of the lungs; the speed and force with which air leaves the lungs; and how well oxygen crosses from the lungs into the blood vessels. Doctors can also measure changes in a child's lung function over time or during ongoing therapy, or his or her immediate response to medications for asthma.

Our pediatric pulmonologists use the latest technologies and equipment to diagnosis and treat lung diseases and disorders in children and adolescents, including:

  • Spirometry
  • Lung volumes
  • Exhaled nitric oxide
  • Diffusion testing
  • Methacholine challenge
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise testing

Bronchoscopy

Our staff is experienced in examining the smaller airways of infants and children of any age using flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Our approach has a high level of diagnostic accuracy while allowing your child to breathe spontaneously during the test.

Our flexible bronchoscopy offers:

  • Upper and lower airway anatomy assessment for presence of increased secretions and infections
  • Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL)
  • Brush biopsies

Research

Our faculty are engaged in research to better understand chronic lung diseases, particularly asthma and cystic fibrosis, and to develop new strategies to prevent and treat these disorders.
