Respiratory Medicine

The Respiratory Medicine service provides inpatient and outpatient care for a wide spectrum of respiratory diseases. We commonly see patients with the following diagnostic problems in our specialist outpatient clinics:

  • Prolonged cough
  • Unexplained breathlessness
  • Cough with blood in the sputum
  • Abnormalities detected on routine chest X-rays

In addition, we assist primary care physicians to optimise management of the following lung diseases:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Interstitial lung disease
  • Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)
  • Pleural effusion
  • Pneumonia
  • Pneumothorax
  • Pulmonary tuberculosis

Our Lung Function Laboratory provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic services:

  • Spirometry and flow loops
  • Lung volumes
  • Transfer factor
  • Bronchoprovocation test
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise test

Our Sleep Laboratory provides Sleep Medicine services such as:

  • In-lab sleep study
  • CPAP titration study
  • Multiple sleep latency testing

We perform the following procedures for inpatients and outpatients where appropriate:

  • Flexible bronchoscopy and appropriate biopsy, lavage, brushings
  • Pleural aspiration and drainage
  • Pleurodesis
  • Non-invasive ventilation (NIV)

We work closely with our physiotherapy colleagues to provide pulmonary rehabilitation programmes and our pharmacists who run smoking cessation programmes. In addition, we support our colleagues in Intensive Care Medicine through the management of critically ill patients who are on mechanical ventilation and NIV.
