Pediatric Airway Management Program

Pediatric Airway Management Program

Multiple specialties working together to provide coordinated care for your child’s complex airway and swallowing disorders

If your child has an airway or swallowing disorder, they need immediate care and specialized treatment to address their symptoms and help restore and maintain proper functions. When airways are compromised, the resulting breathing and feeding problems often cause serious health problems including developmental delays.

The Pediatric Airway Management Program at Children’s Health℠ provides personalized care and a collaborative approach to meet your child’s needs quickly and conveniently. Whether it’s during an outpatient visit or in a hospital setting, our team of specially trained physicians, speech language therapists, advanced practice providers, nurses, respiratory therapists and social workers work together to provide the best care possible for your child’s airway management needs.

Our team uses evidence-based procedures that rely on the latest research and documented best practices to diagnose and treat your child. We combine the most recent findings with our years of experience to provide care with proven results. We are skilled at identifying the severity of your child’s symptoms so we can determine if they need to be treated at a hospital or on an outpatient basis. Regardless of the type of airway issue your child is having, it is our goal to answer your questions and make your visit as effective and stress-free as possible.
