Surfactant Protein C Dysfunction (SP-C)

What is Surfactant Protein C Dysfunction? 





What does SP-C Dysfunction mean for my child?

What to watch out for:

  • If your child is working hard to breathe, talk to a health care provider. If possible. ask to see a lung specialist who is experienced with these conditions.
  • Try to prevent infections from common childhood illnesses. Wash your hands often and ask your friends and family to let you know if they are sick before they are around your child.
  • Get your child’s vaccines and yearly flu shot.
