Non-Invasively Assessing Lung Ventilation in Pediatrics

Description

We are looking at how infants and young children breathe in different positions. This will help us understand how children with different types of lung hypoplasia breathe and how the lung changes and grows. To do this, we will measure regional lung ventilation by electrical impedance tomography (EIT) in three positions: lying on the back, right- and left-side in children with pulmonary hypoplasia and in healthy children without lung disease. EIT has been well established as a safe, non-invasive, radiation free method of assessing regional lung ventilation. There is no compensation available for this study.
