Pediatric Care

As children grow their respiratory care needs change, and our department is prepared to help at every stage of growth and development. Our specialists can provide all of the testing, treatments, breathing aids, and transport services that are available to adults, yet with equipment and procedures that are specially adapted to the needs of younger, smaller systems.

Our department also strives to resolve problems that are prevalent among children. Antelope Valley Hospital has a special program for treating respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), the most common cause of bronchiolitis and pneumonia among children under one year of age, and offers a menu of treatments and education services for managing pediatric asthma.
