Expansions in sleep medicine, cystic fibrosis and neuromuscular disease
We significantly expanded our sleep medicine program in the past year, completing more than 250 infant and pediatric studies at a new laboratory. We also started a new CPAP clinic and a combined airway/sleep clinic with our pediatric otolaryngology unit.
Accredited Cystic Fibrosis Center
We invested significantly in our Cystic Fibrosis Foundation-accredited Cystic Fibrosis Care Center, increasing efforts around quality improvement, social services and dietitian support. New state-of-the-art sweat chloride testing devices now assist in confirmation of diagnosis.
Early evaluation initiative
A new collaboration with our pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation service targets early evaluation of neuromuscular disease-related respiratory issues. The program helps to standardize evaluation and early care, and provides opportunities for preventive, protective and promotive services.
