Respiratory medicine focuses on diagnosis, treatment/ management of problems affecting your lungs and airways, from common conditions like asthma and allergies to complex diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma. In our pulmonary Clinic we are experienced in management of a wide range of respiratory complaints with symptoms including shortness of breath, persistent cough, chest discomfort and snoring. Whether you need initial tests or ongoing management of an existing condition, we provide the highest quality of personalized care.
Our Clinic works closely with leading consultants across several medical specialties besides pulmonary medicine, including cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, oncology and ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery giving you the best tailored care, whatever your condition.
What we offer
Complete evaluation of lung function from simple spirometry, bronchodilation testing, and bronchial challenge test, to complete lung function test, with respiratory muscle testing.
Spirometry assesses whether your airways are obstructed or if the movement of your lungs is restricted. It may be recommended for evaluation of symptoms such as breathlessness or a persistent cough, diagnosis of some conditions (asthma) and furthermore used to monitor treatment for an existing condition. Bronchial responsiveness to bronchodilator agent helps identify the main disease behind an abnormal test.
Asthma is a common condition that causes lung inflammation and can cause cough, and shortness of breath. This inflammation is sometimes caused by allergies or overly sensitive airways. A bronchial challenge test ‘challenges’ your airways by asking you to inhale doses of a powder and then measures your lung function via spirometry.
This is a test to find out how much air is in your lungs after you take in a deep breath, and how much air is left in your lungs after breathing out as much as you can. Measuring the total amount of air your lungs can hold and the amount of air left in your lungs after you breathe out gives your healthcare provider information about how well your lungs are working and helps guide your treatment.
Diffusion tests help us evaluate shortness of breath and other respiratory symptoms. It shows how well the oxygen in the air you breathe in moves from your lungs into your blood. It is usually done in association with Full lung function test and needs evaluation of Blood Hemoglobin before the test.
Thoracic Ultrasound is an excellent noninvasive tool for evaluation of shortness of breath and dyspnea since it can evaluate lungs, pleural space, diaphragm, cardiac function, and fluid status with no radiation exposure. It has a wide array of uses in pulmonary medicine and is slowly becoming the standard of care for all clinics.
An arterial-blood gas test measures the amounts of arterial gases, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide. An ABG test requires that a small volume of blood be drawn from the radial artery with a syringe and a thin needle. The test is needed to evaluate causes of dyspnea, as well as daytime sleepiness (hypersomnolence).
We may recommend that you have a bronchoscopy for various reasons, from investigating a persistent cough to taking a mucus sample if you have a lung infection. There are two different types of bronchoscopy – flexible and rigid. A flexible bronchoscopy is more commonly used.
Bronchoscopy with TBNA may be used to evaluate lymphadenopathy of the lung and other difficult to reach lesions suspicious for lung cancer, or other cancers that are suspected of spreading to the lung and lymph nodes, lymphoma, and other non-cancerous conditions such as sarcoidosis or tuberculosis.
A pleuroscopy is a medical procedure that allows the doctor to visualize the pleural cavity, which is the space between the chest wall and the lung. This is done by inserting a thin tube with a camera, called a pleuroscope, through the chest wall. Is usually performed to examine and diagnose the cause of abnormal fluid accumulation in the pleural cavity. It allows visualization of the pleural surface and enables biopsies under direct vision. During the procedure, the doctor may occasionally spray medications onto the pleural surface to prevent the fluid from re-accumulating.
