LUNG


Panda Pediatrics is committed to providing your child with screening tests and disease prevention (including vaccinations) as recommended by the Bright Futures initiative of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Assessment of lung function is recommended for the regular assessment for children with lung diseases by the AAP. If your child suffers from moderate to severe asthma, pulmonary function testing (spirometry) is done yearly starting at 6 years of age, most typically this is done at well check visits. We also use it to assess the effect of a new medication on asthma control.
