Allergy, Asthma & Immunology
Care for kids with allergies and asthma means taking a collaborative approach toward treatment that includes patient education to help understand triggers and minimize symptoms. The team at Dell Children’s addresses common conditions as well as rarer immunodeficiency disorders and diseases.
The cystic fibrosis care team at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas helps children and their families develop a better understanding of cystic fibrosis (CF), as well as improve their quality of daily life. This inherited, chronic disease can feel overwhelming for children living with CF as well as their families. Because our program is also fully accredited for adult CF treatment, kids won’t age out of our care.
Sleep disorders are often related to respiratory concerns. Identifying any underlying conditions that could be affecting your child’s normal sleep patterns can mean a better night’s sleep. Dell Children’s combines advanced monitoring within a pediatric-focused sleep lab to accurately pinpoint sleep disorders and determine the best approach for treatment.
