Growing up, children are exposed to countless germs. As a result, most children experience an infection once a year. Most of these will be mild and pass quickly. Still, treating symptoms is vital to ensure continued health.

There are two branches of the respiratory system, and both have their unique traits and symptoms.

The Upper Respiratory System

This includes four areas: the sinuses, nose, mouth, and throat. They work together to warm and clean the air we breathe. But, they are also the most vulnerable to infection in children. If you see signs like runny nose, fever, or coughing, seek out a specialist. Early treatment will clear symptoms up. If left alone, the infection could lead to loss of appetite, sleeping problems, and low energy.

The Lower Respiratory System

The lower respiratory system has two parts: the lungs and bronchial tubes. These organs supply oxygen to your bloodstream. Though they are infected less often when they are, it is more severe. A qualified specialist is necessary for treating any related symptoms, especially for children.

Look for symptoms like shallow breathing, coughing, and high fever. Treated quickly, an infection can be managed. But left alone, it could lead to more serious conditions like pneumonia.

Dr. Shukla’s top-qualified pediatric pulmonary care in Manhattan treats both upper and lower respiratory problems in children. With years of expertise and cutting-edge treatment, he provides the best care available for your children.


The first step in combatting pneumonia is early detection. Symptoms include coughing, congestion, and fever. For infants, watch for decreased feeding. At the first sign, seek out a specialist for immediate treatment.


If your child is having difficulty breathing, then they may have asthma. This condition is marked by inflamed and constricted airways, making breathing uneven or shallow. It is prevalent in children and challenging to diagnose.

Common Symptoms Include:

  • Difficulty or labored breathing
  • Persistent wheezing
  • Chest pain
  • Decreased energy
  • Rapid breathing
  • Panic or anxiety

Even though there is no cure, this condition can be managed with medication and awareness. With Dr. Shukla’s guidance and care, he aims to create effective plans for managing your child’s chronic asthma.


This is a viral infection most prevalent in younger children from birth to two years. They can experience mucous in their lungs and inflamed airways. If you notice persistent coughing or wheezing, seek out a pediatric pulmonologist immediately.

Other Pulmonary Problems

Even common illnesses require attention and treatment. Otherwise, they can lead to complications. Most symptoms of minor infections clear up after an average of ten days. Still, a specialist is vital to understand whether it is something more serious.
