Respiratory & Pulmonary Care
Access a dedicated respiratory and pulmonary care specialist near you at Faith Regional Health Services. You’ll get the care you need to breathe easier and live better.
Function of Your Lungs
Every cell in your body needs oxygen to function. Your respiratory system, together with your circulatory system, delivers that oxygen from your lungs. It also moves carbon dioxide – a waste product created during respiration – from your cells back to your lungs, where it’s exhaled during normal breathing.
When you are experiencing symptoms that affect your breathing and your lungs, a respiratory and pulmonary care specialist can help.
Conditions We Treat
Diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect your breathing and lungs may involve evaluation of various parts of your respiratory tract, including the sinuses, nose, throat, and windpipe. Sometimes, it also involves evaluating other parts of your body, such as your heart.
We treat a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
- Breathing difficulty
- Chronic cough
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Cystic fibrosis
- Lung cancer
- Pulmonary fibrosis or scarring in the lungs
- Pulmonary hypertension
- Respiratory failure
- Sleep apnea
To better understand your health, your pulmonologist will review your medical history, learn about your lifestyle and preferences, and check your overall lung function to create an individualized treatment plan. You’ll receive education, support and resources to help you make the best decisions for the best possible quality of life. This may include smoking cessation options and pulmonary rehabilitation.
