If you're driving around Baltimore and happen to spot a recreational vehicle adorned with colorful pictures of children, you've probably seen the University of Maryland Children's Hospital Breathmobile. The Breathmobile is a custom-built pediatric asthma and allergy clinic that travels to almost two dozen schools, providing ongoing asthma and allergy care to children.
It's been in operation since 2002, when the University of Maryland Children's Hospital created the East Coast's first Breathmobile. Inside the Breathmobile, there is a small waiting area, a testing area and two exam rooms. Onboard the Breathmobile, you'll find an asthma team that includes a pediatric allergist or pulmonologist, a pediatric nurse practitioner, a registered nurse and a driver.
