Asthma in Children

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in managing asthma in children, a condition that narrows airways and causes breathing problems.

Our physicians are skilled in discerning the difference between asthma and other conditions that can affect breathing, such as an upper respiratory infection caused by a cold or the flu. After confirming that your child has asthma, doctors at NYU Langone select the most appropriate and effective treatment. Our asthma specialists also work to educate children and their families on the importance of adhering to treatment and how to control symptoms. If your child has severe uncontrolled asthma, specialists from our Pediatric Severe Asthma Program provide advanced evaluation and targeted treatments.

NYU Langone specialists also diagnose and treat asthma in adults.
