At CHOC Children’s, we care for children with severe lung disease and chronic respiratory failure. Some children require breathing support after they leave the hospital. We help families with children who require mechanical ventilation or have tracheostomies.
Our goal is to help your child reach full respiratory potential. We encourage family participation and work closely with your family members and your child’s primary care physician to set goals and provide care. We also work with several home care services to ease the transition from the hospital to the family’s home, and assist with ongoing management.
Our program is widely recognized in the community, with many families traveling long distances to CHOC for their child’s care. We offer both inpatient and outpatient services to our families.
