The pulmonology team is located at the medical center, and offers a variety of care:
- Complete pulmonary function examination evaluating the permeability of the bronchial tubes, pulmonary volume, function of the alveoli, gas exchanges and respiratory muscle strength.
For a precise diagnostic approach, we also perform provocation tests,
allergy tests and evaluate the functioning of all the organ systems
participating in physical effort (ergospirometry), the same tests as are
performed at centers for high-level athletes.
In association with our modern and competent radiology department, this allows us to provide individualized, targeted and effective pulmonological treatment.
The respiratory polygraph allows us to identify sleep problems, due to snoring or a more serious respiratory problems such as sleep apnea.
Working closely with the other members of the sleep center (ENT specialist , neurologist, psychiatrist), we develop a tailor-made strategy, adapted to your sleep problem, paired with therapeutic education, which is the key to long-term success.
Our ultramodern video-bronchoscopy equipment (a new image treatment technique called Narrow Band Imaging)
allows us to visually explore the bronchial system and detect dysplasia
(irregularities in the bronchial tubes which can develop into cancer).
- Multiple sampling techniques (bronchial washing, biopsy and endobronchial brushing and mediastinal fine needle aspiration) are also used in the diagnostic process. The exam is formed in the operating room in total safety, to ensure the anesthesiology team can provide ideal comfort in an optimal environment.
- The STOP-TABAC consultation prepares you for the process of giving up smoking in a relaxed, comfortable, and long-lasting way. Here again, we focus on a personalised combination of physicians working at the clinic (pneumologist, psychiatrist, psychologist, hypnotist and acupuncturist).
