This division of medicine combines pulmonary and critical care medicine and it offers care for acute and chronic pulmonary disorders. The pulmonary service evaluates patients with sleep apnea, asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, lung disease and lung cancer, as well as patients with a cough. Patients may be evaluated in the clinic as outpatients or during a hospital stay. Pulmonary diagnostic laboratory staff can measure lung function and offer exercise testing and stimulation of the lower respiratory tract. We take care of critically ill patients, including care of patients with multi-system disease and organ failure and management of sepsis and shock.
