At Loma Linda University Children’s Health, we have a comprehensive team dedicated to diagnosing and treating pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the blood vessels that line the lungs) in children from infancy through 18 years.
Why Choose Us for Your Child's Pulmonary Hypertension Care
- Comprehensive care: We have pediatric cardiologists, pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers and dieticians who work together as a dedicated team to improve your child’s health.
- Advanced therapies: Although oral medication is the most common way to manage pulmonary hypertension, we also offer advanced therapy alternatives, including subcutaneous (under the skin) or intravenous (IV) therapies.
- Specialized clinics: We offer a dedicated pediatric pulmonary hypertension clinic where your child can see their doctor, nurse, social worker and dietician to develop a family-centered treatment plan.
- Family support: We offer the Inland Empire’s only pulmonary hypertension support group, which meets four times a year. You’ll hear from a pulmonary hypertension expert and connect with other parents whose children have the condition.
