Pediatric Pulmonary Diagnostic Center

The Pediatric Pulmonary Diagnostic Center was established to effectively evaluate and formulate treatment plans for one of the most challenging groups with respiratory symptoms - the preschool child. Many of the tests are exclusive to National Jewish Health and not available elsewhere.

We offer tests to assess:

  • Lung function and structure
  • Lung volume/inflation
  • Lung elasticity and compliance
  • Exercise capability
  • Mouth, throat and tongue functions
  • Allergies
  • Bone density
  • Digestive tract anatomy and function
  • Consequences of recurrent respiratory tract infections
  • Nasal potential difference
  • Laryngoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy
