Conditions & Procedures
Emphysema is a chronic condition that is mostly caused by excessive smoking and long-term exposure to airborne irritants. It is a disease in which the walls of the alveoli weaken and rupture, decreasing the surface area for gaseous exchange and the total amount of oxygen that your body receives.
Severe Persistent Asthma
Asthma is a respiratory condition in which the airways of the lungs (breathing passages) narrow and swell, often in response to an allergen.
Narcolepsy is a rare neurological disorder that affects the brain's ability to regulate normal sleep-wake cycles. It is a chronic disease most commonly affecting adolescents and young adults.
Centeral Sleep Apnea
Central sleep apnea is a condition characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep due to insufficient stimulation from the brain. It is a rare form of sleep apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea describes a sleep disorder characterized by frequent pauses in breathing due to collapse or obstruction of the airway.
Lung Mass/Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is a growth of abnormal cells inside the lung. These cells reproduce at a much faster rate than normal cells. The abnormal cells stick together and form a cluster or growth, known as a tumor. If the abnormal cells began growing in the lung, this is known as a primary lung tumor.
Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial lung diseases are a group of conditions characterized by the thickening of the membrane due to inflammation, scarring and fluid accumulation within this tissue.
Sarcoidosis is an autoimmune condition in which inflammatory tissue called granulomas develop in multiple organs of the body, especially the lungs.
Cystic fibrosis or CF is a hereditary disease characterized by recurrent lung infection and delayed growth in children.
Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs. It usually starts as an infection in the upper respiratory tract (nose and throat) and develops when fluid collects in the lungs. The congestion makes it difficult to breathe.
Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction that affects a number of different body systems.
Restrictive Lung Disease
Chronic Respiratory Failure
Shortness of Breath
Mycobacterium Avium Infection
Alpha One Anti Trypsin Deficiency
Vocal Cord Dysfunction
Urticaria & Angioedema
Lung biopsy is a procedure performed to isolate a sample of lung tissue for examining under a microscope for the presence of cancerous cells, infections and other lung conditions.
Pulmonary Function Testing
Pulmonary function tests (also called lung function tests) are a group of noninvasive tests that help evaluate lung function. The tests measure various parameters such as lung capacity, volume, gas exchange, and rates of air flow.
Chest Tube Placement
A chest tube or percutaneous catheter is a hollow tube inserted into the space around your lungs, called the pleural space, in order to drain blood, air or infected material, and allow your lungs to expand freely.
Tracheostomy is a surgical procedure performed to create an opening in front of your neck. This is done to insert a tube into the windpipe (trachea) to assist in breathing and suctioning out fluid buildup from the lungs.
Right Heart Catheterization
Cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure generally employed to diagnose and treat certain heart conditions. Diagnostic cardiac catheterization is a procedure that involves insertion of a thin flexible tube (catheter) into the right side of the heart, usually through the groin or arm.
A spirometer is a device used for measuring lung function. This test evaluates the amount of air that you can inhale and exhale, and the speed at which you can exhale the air out of your lungs.
In Lab Sleep Study
An In-lab sleep study, also known as polysomnogram, is a test that evaluates various aspects of sleep, and is performed in a sleep laboratory or hospital while you are sleeping.
Management of Allergies
Allergies are responses from your immune system that occur when a foreign body triggers antibody release, even if it is not harmful.
Inhaled short and long-term control medications are used by inhaling measured amounts of the medication through inhalation devices.
Bronchial Thermoplasty (BT), delivered by the Alair™ System, is a minimally invasive and safe outpatient procedure for the treatment of severe asthma in adults.
Airway Stents and Valves
Skin and Blood Allergy Test
Six-minute Walk Test
The 6-minute walk test measures the distance a person is able to walk over a span of 6 minutes on a flat, hard surface. The 6 MWT renders information concerning functional capacity, response to therapy, and prognosis for a broad spectrum of heart and lung conditions.

Central Line Placement
