Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine

A section of Children (ISSN 2227-9067).

Section Information

Strong lungs are the foundation for children’s health. When lungs become blocked or infected, children can have serious health problems. Prevention of respiratory diseases and improving the health of infants, children, and young adults with respiratory diseases can be accomplished through research, education, and clinical care.

Sleeping well is essential for good health through the entirety of the human life span, and is particularly important during developmental ages because sleep may be relevant for development of cognitive and behavioral skills.

The Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine Section accepts all articles and reviews related to the Research of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine in infants, children, and adolescents.
