Pediatric pulmonologists deal with the general functioning of your child's respiratory system. They work closely with allergy and immunology to treat underlying problems that result in difficulty breathing. Wheezing can be a sign of many different respiratory conditions both minor and more severe.


For more complex cases, your child's pulmonologist might request a Pulmonary function test.
