Pneumonia is an infection or inflammation of the lungs caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a disorder that affects the pulmonary artery: the large blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs, and the hundreds of tiny blood vessels that branch off from it. PAH starts when these small vessels become more narrow. As a result, the heart must work harder to push blood through the narrowed blood vessels. This leads to increased resistance and higher blood pressure in your lungs.
Is a disease that causes mucus in the body to become thick and sticky. People who have cystic fibrosis can have serious breathing problems and lung disease.
Pulmonary embolism is the sudden blockage of a major blood vessel (artery) in the lung, usually by a blood clot.
Bronchoscopy: Diagnostic & Interventional:
Bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look at your airway through a thin viewing instrument called a bronchoscope. Diagnostic bronchoscopy is a procedure to help diagnose lung problems. Interventional bronchoscopy involves treatment of tumors, placement of stents, removal of aspirated foreign bodies, and is sometimes guided by ultrasound. In addition, our doctors are proficient in placing Brachytherapy cathetars to provide radiation treatment for patients with lung cancer, and placing tracheostomy tubes ( tube placed in the neck area in the patient’s wind pipe to assist those patients who are unable to breath for themselves)
