How Boston Children’s approaches apnea of prematurity
At Boston Children’s Hospital, we understand that it can be very scary when your baby stops breathing, even if she stops breathing just for a short while. We treat apnea through one of our childhood respiratory programs, such as the Center for Healthy Infant Lung Development (CHILD). At CHILD, we offer a comprehensive, team-based approach to maximize the growth and development of your child’s lungs. Our staff is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and we pride ourselves in how available we are to our families.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
