Pulmonary services we offer
Our pulmonary specialists offer the following services to treat and manage pulmonary conditions:
A bronchoscopy is a procedure used to view the airways in the lungs. During a bronchoscopy, a physician will insert a thin tube with a camera into the nose or mouth, until the instrument reaches the lungs. This provides a detailed image of the airways to ensure there are no abnormalities, tumors or severe irritation.
COPD treatment and management
Although there is no cure for COPD, there are a variety of options for symptom reduction, such as certain medications, oxygen therapy, or in some cases, surgery.
Our respiratory treatments are designed to treat shortness of breath, wheezing and other respiratory concerns. There are many specific kinds of respiratory treatments, such as medications, respiratory inhalers and advanced breathing treatments.
This breathing test measures how quickly, and in what amounts, you inhale and exhale air. During a spirometry test, a patient will be asked to breathe into a tube that is connected to a machine called a spirometer that calculates and records information.
