Pulmonary specialists at CHI St. Alexius Health are trained to treat diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly pneumonia, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis.
Physicians diagnose pulmonary (lung-related) problems with a combination of physical exam, chest X-ray, and pulmonary function test.
Treatment is a continuum of care that varies according to each patient’s condition. It may include prevention, education, medication therapy, outpatient or inpatient procedures, and lifestyle changes.
Acute and chronic pulmonary conditions include:
- Lung cancer
- Sleep disorders
