Infant Lung Function Testing

Guest: Stephanie D. Davis, MD

Babies born with cystic fibrosis or premature lung disease cannot have their lung function tested in the same way as adults. Infant lung testing is a technique in which a breath is simulated while the infant is sedated. This allows clinicians to further diagnose the severity of the baby’s disease and can also help determine if a patient will respond to a medicine. From a research standpoint, infant lung function testing also helps to better understand the natural history of a disease, such as the progress of premature lung disease. In this podcast, Dr. Stephanie Davis, Section Chief for Pediatric Pulmonary and Allergy at Indiana University Health, discusses in detail the technique of infant lung function testing, as well as a new technique known as diffusing capacity and its research effects worldwide.
