Respiratory Problems

Providing relief for breathing problems in kids

We’ve been there. Sometimes kids stomp their feet and hold their breath until their face turns blue simply because they can.

It’s those other, scarier times when your child’s breathing is truly compromised that you want the counsel of a pediatric professional who understands breathing problems in kids.

Respiratory issues run the gamut from cough and congestion to asthma attacks and bronchitis. Seasonal allergies can wreak havoc on little throats, noses, and lungs – while chronic problems require a professionally mapped out course of action for the long term.

KinderMender is committed to helping your child breathe easier. Our physicians understand the severity of asthma, and the means of treating it, but also know that patients do not have to necessarily be asthmatic to benefit from the relief that such measures deliver. Additionally, our founder, Keyvan Rafei, MD, was Chairman of the Pediatric Asthma Program at the University of Maryland Hospital for Children.

Anyone who has ever watched a child struggle for air knows that breathing problems in kids are not “watch and wait” problems. If your child shows signs of respiratory distress, don’t delay. Seek medical assistance. Our practice offers three convenient locations and flexible hours of operation.

With KinderMender’s help, breathing problems in kids are easily solved. How’s that for a breath of fresh air?
