Cystic Fibrosis, Pulmonary, Tracheostomy/Ventilator Clinics
What happens at a visit?
At the first clinic visit, you or your child will be seen by a pediatric pulmonary medicine specialist who will record a detailed medical history and perform a physical examination. If needed, your child might undergo X-rays, blood tests and a breathing test to measure lung capacity and function.
After the medical history is reviewed and examination and test results are available, we will discuss a detailed plan of treatment with you. We try to complete this process at the first visit, which may take from one to three hours, depending on the complexity of the problem.
Who will I see?
You will be seen by a board-certified pulmonary specialist. The pediatric pulmonology specialists on staff at Children's Hospital also are on the faculty of The Medical College of Wisconsin. They work with and help train medical students as well as residents in pediatrics and internal medicine. Since Children's Hospital is a teaching institution, these doctors in training may be involved with your care. The care they provide is supervised and coordinated by the faculty.
