The Breathing Institute at Children's Hospital Colorado is one of the world's premier programs for treating children with breathing disorders. We are internationally known for our team's clinical and research leadership roles in caring for children with conditions including asthma, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), cystic fibrosis (CF), pulmonary hypertension (PH), sleep disorders, primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), interstitial and diffuse lung disease, and for associated basic science research.
We offer a top pediatric pulmonology fellowship program with the University of Colorado School of Medicine. We're located near the University of Colorado Hospital and the University of Colorado School of Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus. This partnership enables us to work with some of the best minds in academic research.
There's currently no technology to measure the structure and function of the lungs, particularly in kids. At Children's Colorado, electrical impedance tomography (EIT) will change that.
Children's Hospital Colorado is actively seeking children and teens to participate in a research study on environmental causes of asthma. Get information on requirements, compensation and how to participate.
We're focused on transforming care and finding cures through innovation. Some of our team's advancements include:
In 2017, the Breathing Institute had 65 active awards combined, which included awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), foundation and industry awards. These awards provided more than 15 million dollars of funding for our pulmonary research.
"Our team works tirelessly to get our patients home safely with their families. Innovation and research help us better care for technology-dependent children at home."
