The pediatric pulmonology team provides procedures and tests, such as:

- Polysomnogram: These studies provide detailed information regarding sleep.
- Pulmonary function tests: These tests show doctors how well the lungs are working. Some examples include:
- Exercise stress testing
- Methacholine challenge testing
- Board-certified sleep specialists at Phoenix Children’s read and interpret these studies.
Our pediatric respiratory labs provide comprehensive testing for pulmonary patients, with timely results that help the care team guide your child’s treatment plan.
