Augusta Health Pulmonology & Critical Care

Pulmonology and Critical Care can help individuals who suffer from respiratory disorders and lung illnesses such as:

  • bronchitis
  • asthma
  • pneumonia
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • emphysema
  • lung masses
  • cancer
  • and other chronic conditions

We also focus on hereditary diseases affecting the lungs (such as cystic fibrosis and alpha1- antitrypsin deficiency), exposures to toxins (tobacco smoke, asbestos, or exhaust fumes), exposures to infectious agents (certain types of birds), and autoimmune allergies that might predispose someone to certain conditions (such as pulmonary fibrosis or pulmonary hypertension).

Our Respiratory Therapy & Pulmonary Lab offers a full range of pulmonary function testing including: lung volumes, carbon monoxide diffusion studies, pre and post exercise studies, arterial blood gas studies, and simple pulse oximetry.

Our Pulmonogists uses laboratory testing, Spirometry (a machine that measures lung volumes in times), chest x-rays, CT scanning, and Bronchoscopy as diagnostic tools to help determine a diagnosis and treatment for individual patients.
