Children are not simply little adults and may have a different reason for their cough or difficulty breathing. For this reason, they may need a specialist well trained in pediatric pulmonary disease.
If your child has breathing problems, or a possible problem with his or her lungs, your pediatrician or family doctor may refer you to the pulmonary clinic for further evaluation. Pediatric pulmonologists diagnose, treat, and manage children from birth to 21 years old with breathing and lung diseases. New Hampshire’s Hospital for Children is proud to provide the community with the services of our board certified pediatric pulmonologist who has completed extensive training in all aspects of pediatric respiratory problems.

The Little Lungs Program
The Little Lung Program at Elliot Health System is a multidisciplinary approach to maximize the growth and development of the respiratory system of children with a history of premature birth. We partner with local pediatricians and family practitioners to care for high risk infants and children. The program allows coordination of care between primary care providers, other subspecialists, social work and nutrition.
In accordance with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Elliot Health System offers prevention of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) with monthly Synagis® injections. For certain high-risk pediatric patients, RSV infection may cause significant lower respiratory tract disease and lead to hospitalization.
