Critical Care units represent the apex of technical advancements in medicine. Such units integrate many specialities and diverse technologies, offering the possibility of survival to patients who would otherwise die. It is therefore obvious that the role of the Critical Care services is vital and crucial to a tertiary care hospital, as the Critical Care unit contributes immensely to survival of acutely and critically ill patients.
A pulmonologist, or pulmonary disease specialist, is a physician who possesses specialized knowledge and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary (lung) conditions and diseases.
Pulmonology is classified as an internal medicine subspecialty. Because of the variety of clinical problems encountered, knowledge of internal medicine and other specialties is required in order to obtain certification It measures how well the lungs take in and exhale air and how efficiently they transfer oxygen into the blood.
Spirometry measures how well the lungs exhale. The information gathered during this test is useful in diagnosing certain types of lung disorders, but is most useful when assessing for obstructive lung diseases (especially asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD)
Spirometry with lung volumes & diffusion study (DLCO) for diagnosis & monitoring of pulmonary fibrosis, obstructive lung disease and pulmonary vascular disease
Through this pleuroscopy, doctors are able to see the lungs & its outer layer (Pleural Cavity) with hi-resolution & crystal clear images, which helps them to diagnose the exact problem & decide the exact line of treatment for patient. Previously as a traditional method, patient needs to go for various investigations like X-ray, pathological tests, CT Scan which at times become cumbersome & not able to get the proper diagnosis. But now with this latest procedure “Diagnostic Pleuroscopy”, there is 100% success rate in cost effective manner. The benefit of this procedure is that it’s OPD based means–“ No Admission, No stay ”
Medical thoracoscopy is a procedure used by interventional pulmnologist for investigation and treatment of pleural and peripheral lung disease. It is usually carried out under local anesthesia and sedation and performed in a bronchoscopy room.
Diagnosis & management of recurrent pleural effusion & pneumothorax. Deep- seated infectious – Renal and perinephric abscess and other intra abdominal infections, Lung abscess, Cerebral abscess and other intra abdominal infections, Lung abscess, cerebral abscess etc
