PeaceHealth St. Joseph Pulmonary and Sleep Clinic

Specialty Care for Easier Breathing

 
Pulmonary Medicine addresses the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of lung and breathing disorders. Symptoms of these kind of problems include coughing, shortness of breath, wheezing, frequent respiratory infections and fatigue.

Breathing specialists use Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) to measure how well your lungs take in and release air and how efficiently your lungs transfer oxygen into the blood. Diagnosis may also sometimes involve imaging and lab tests.

Common breathing or lung disorders include:

  • Asthma.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Interstitial lung disease.
  • Lung cancer.

Treatments for breathing disorders generally include short-term and/or long-term inhalers or other medications that help open your airways as well as avoiding smoke or other things that trigger breathing problems. Some lung diseases may require surgery.

PFTs are commonly repeated over several weeks or months to gauge how well a treatment is working.

Our providers work to offer patients the latest technology available in pulmonary medicine, including:

  • Cryobiopsies—non-surgical lung biopsies that can extract a large, intact issue sample to evaluate for potential lung disease;
  • Navigational bronchoscopies;
  • EBUS—a non-surgical tool that accurately detects lung cancer and other diseases causing enlarged lymph nodes in the chest; and
  • The Zephyr® Endobronchial Valve Procedure.

Your primary care provider will refer you to a pulmonary specialist if your condition requires this specialized care.
