Help your child learn about keeping their lungs healthy.


Healthy lungs allow your child to breathe easily and comfortably. When your lungs are healthy, you're more likely to be able to do the activities you love and have a good quality of life.

Sometimes children cough or wheeze at night or have trouble sleeping. They may cough or wheeze during activities or while playing sports. Asthma and sleep apnea are common breathing problems for children.

Pediatric rehabilitation can help if your child is having challenges in these areas of development.
