Respiratory Department

B49

Overview

The respiratory department manages patients with a wide variety of respiratory problems, including lung cancer, asthma, COPD, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis, pleural disease, pulmonary vascular disease, sleep apnoea and related conditions. These patients usually suffer from breathlessness, cough, haemotysis, chest pain, and, in the case of sleep apnoea, excessive daytime sleepiness.

The department offers both a large outpatient service with supporting specialist nurses for lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, TB and COPD, and a comprehensive inpatient service that can deal with all acute respiratory problems.
