Respiratory ailments are a major burden in children both in terms of morbidity & mortality. WHO estimates that globally about 7.1 million children suffer from asthma; over 2 million children die from pneumonia (1 in 5 under five deaths) and about 74,000 die from tuberculosis each year. Knowing the burden of the respiratory system diseases, the department provides the following services:

  • Follow up of chronic, complicated and rare respiratory cases
  • Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy (for diagnostic & therapeutic interventions)
