Pulmonary Medicine

Breathe Better

Simply drawing in a full breath can be a refreshing experience for people who have a pulmonary disorder. Those who smoke may experience pulmonary-related ailments. In fact, cigarette smoking is responsible for a majority of lung and airway disorders, and up to a third of all heart disease deaths in the United States.

Pulmonary medicine focuses on the respiratory system, which includes the lungs and other organs that help the lungs to function. Our pulmonary medicine specialists use diagnostic procedures such as biopsies, X-ray, CT scans and sleep studies  to create individualized treatment plans for patients with pulmonary diseases and disorders, including pneumonia, COPD (chronic bronchitis and emphysema), asthma, lung cancer, lung disease and sleep disorders. Our highly skilled pulmonary specialists perform a variety procedures such as bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage, thoracentesis, transbronchial needle aspiration, oxygen therapy and scintigraphy. 

For those with pulmonary disease who suffer from related sleep disorders, Virtua’s SleepCare Centers provide state-of-the-art sleep facilities. Sleep specialists perform sleep studies that assess heart rate, brain waves, breathing, oxygen levels, and more. Virtua doctors then are able to provide comprehensive consultation, testing, and treatment of identified sleep problems.
