At Covenant Pulmonary Critical Care we are committed to providing quality treatment and support for those with lung disease.
We offer tests and diagnostics for patients with various pulmonary conditions in a caring and compassionate environment.
Fiberoptic Bronchoscopy is a visual exam of the breathing passages, or "airways" of the lungs.
This test is done when it is important for your doctor to see inside the airways of your lungs, or to get samples of mucus
or tissue from the lungs.
Pulmonary Function Testing
Spirometry is one of the most commonly ordered lung function tests. A spirometer is used to measure how much
air you can breathe into your lungs, and how much air you
can quickly blow out.
Lung Cancer Screening
Regular screenings can detect disease at its earliest and most treatable stage. Screening tests may include laboratory tests to check blood and other fluids, genetic tests that look for inherited genetic markers linked to disease, and imaging
tests that produce pictures of the inside of the body.
Cancer can also form on the outside lining of the lungs, called Pleural Mesothelioma. Because Pleural Mesothelioma affects the outside of the lungs, it is not considered Lung Cancer. However, PM and Lung Cancer share many of the same symptoms. Regular screenings can detect the disease at it its earliest and most treatable stage. Learn more about Pleural Mesothelioma.
Healthy sleep plays a critical role in the body's immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other
vital functions. When you have a sleeping disorder, the sleepless nights have a negative impact on your health.
At Covenant Pulmonary Critical Care we can help you get a good night's sleep.
Home Sleep Studies
A home sleep apnea test is a convenient way for your
health care provider to collect information about your sleep. This type of test is administered in the comfort
of your home.
Having lung disease has a physical and emotional impact on your body, and at Covenant Pulmonary Critical Care we understand that. That's why we offer educational therapies and counseling services to help you have a better quality of life throughout your treatment.
If you are a smoker, quitting smoking is the single most important step you can take to improve the length and quality of your life. It can be tough to stop smoking, but Covenant Pulmonary Critical Care offers programs and support to help you quit.
Every month we provide an educational seminar so that patients and their families can have the best information about their condition and available treatment options. Ensuring that patients play an active role in their treatment plan is critical to the recovery process.
