Pediatric Asthma Team

Chldren's Hospital is unique. Parents and patients work with a team of professionals who have years of additional training and experience helping children and teens manage their asthma. 

Medical Doctors
A medical doctor (M.D.) will coordinate your care. The doctor will make the initial diagnosis of asthma and help your child stay on a personal treatment plan for asthma control.

Nurse Practitioners
Our medical doctors work closely with nurse practitioners (NPs), registered nurses who have specialized training in advanced asthma care.

Respiratory Therapists
Respiratory therapists diagnose and treat respiratory illness. They help children improve their breathing and sometimes use technical equipment to improved respiration for those who cannot breathe on their own.

Our pharmacist dispenses medicines and counsels patients on the proper use and adverse effects of those medicines. They also optimize and monitor drug therapy and interpret laboratory results.

Registered Nurses

Our asthma nurses are licensed professionals with four-year nursing degrees.

Parents and family are the most important members of our asthma team!  Without your dedication to your child's health, it is impossible for us to manage their asthma.

We invite you to learn about MyHealth at Vanderbilt, an online system that allows you to view your child's personal health information. You can see easy-to-understand descriptions of lab tests, check appointments, view and pay your Vanderbilt bills online and send messages to your Vanderbilt doctor's office. MyHealth email system is not for emergency or urgent contact.
