The Center for Autonomic Medicine in Pediatrics (CAMP) at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago is the first of its kind in the world.
The Center is an interdisciplinary program that studies diseases affecting control of breathing and the autonomic nervous system in children and young adults (the autonomic nervous system functions automatically to sustain life in people of all ages).
CAMP has emerged as an international leader in the study of congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS), rapid-onset obesity with hypothalamic dysfunction, hypoventilation and autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD) and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), as well as diaphragm pacing.
This documentary follows one 10-year-old girl through a special week in CAMP with the remarkable medical team at Lurie Children's in Chicago.
Produced and Directed by Aaron Cahan
