We are able to investigate, diagnose and treat the whole spectrum of lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, pleural effusion and other pleural diseases, primary and secondary lung cancer, tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis and other interstitial lung diseases, occupational lung diseases and obstructive sleep apnoea.
Our investigative capability includes:
- Full lung function testing (spirometry, lung volumes, diffusion capacity, body plethysmography, methacholine challenge test, exercise testing, overnight polysomnography and CPAP titration
- Radiological examinations such as CT scan, MRI and ultrasound
- CT guided aspiration or biopsy of effusions or tumours
Respiratory physicians also look after the Intensive Care Unit, where we take care of critically ill patients who require intensive haemodynamic, respiratory monitoring, treatment with inotropic support and mechanical ventilation.
