Respiratory Disease & Sleep Disorder

Respiratory Disease & Sleep Disorder

Overview

Pulmonology is concerned with diseases of the lungs and bronchial tubes, and upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx and throat) & sleep disorders. It becomes imperative to solve the many major & minor medical challenges faced by people afflicted with conditions related to their breathing, as it is an integral part of an individual’s life and can lead to reduced participation in activities & other limitations on one’s life.

The Centre for Respiratory Disease & Sleep Disorder at Sarvodaya Hospital offers comprehensive diagnosis & treatment under the guidance of a qualified team of pulmonologists who offer a wide spectrum of services. We understand the value of our patient’s lives and thus we maintain higher hygiene standards to strive to provide individualized care for each person, providing the right treatment based on an accurate diagnosis and an assessment of the patient’s needs.

We have globally acclaimed pulmonologists in our core team who guides the centre to achieve its visionary goal. We have a team of MD and DNB Consultants who are specially trained in diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly Pneumonia, Asthma, Tuberculosis, COPD, ILD, Sleep Disorder etc.

We have a high-end technology equipped diagnostic lab for PFT, Bronchoscopy & EBUS, and Thoracoscopy tests. The department is enriched with best technologies including PFT, Bronchoscope, EBUS, Thoracoscope, Allergy Testing, Sleep Study, ILD, Emphysema, and complicated chest infections, Pulmonary Hypertension. The best-qualified nurses and technicians support our doctor team and we function as a cohesive unit to treat all disorders related to Asthma, lungs & respiratory tract.

  • COPD: COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease refers to a group of lung diseases that lead to blockage in the airflow causing breathing issues. We offer the best treatment with the support of our expert consultants.
  • Asthma: We offer special treatment and care for both asthma and allergic asthma along with an exact diagnosis to prescribe the latest medicine or treatment route.  
  • Lung Cancer (Diagnosis includes Invasive Testing): This is the most serious lung disease, which needs accurate diagnosis at an early stage. A powerful combination of our expert team, the latest technology & enhanced diagnosis centre helps patients to get an early diagnosis. Upon the diagnosis results, our specialists offer the best medical & surgical treatment options that suit the patient's condition.
  • Pulmonary TB (including MDR / XDR): Tuberculosis is a contagious disease and can spread when the patient sneezes or coughs. Common symptoms include pain in the chest, fatigue, fever, chronic cough, shortness of breath & night sweats among others.

We also offer specialist treatment for Respiratory Critical Care Cases, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) & Pulmonary Vascular disorders including pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hypertension.

Bronchoscope: We use this latest endoscopic technique to visualize the inside of the airways for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This instrument is inserted into the airways through the nose or mouth, or through a tracheostomy for the examination.

EBUS: EBUS allows physicians to perform a technique known as TBNA to obtain tissue or fluid samples from the lungs and surrounding lymph nodes under Ultrasound guidance without any conventional surgery. The samples can be used for diagnosing and staging lung cancer, detecting infections, identifying inflammatory diseases that affect the lungs.

What makes EBUS different:

During an Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS):

  • The physician can perform needle aspiration lymph nodes using bronchoscope inserted through the mouth.
  • A special endoscope fitted with an ultrasound processor and a fine-gauge aspiration needle is guided through the patient’s trachea.
  • No incisions are necessary.

Benefits of EBUS:

  • Provide real-time imaging of the surface of the airways, blood vessels, lungs and lymph nodes.
  • The provided images allow the physician to easily view difficult to reach areas and to access more, and smaller, lymph nodes for biopsy with the aspiration needle than through conventional mediastinoscopy.
  • The accuracy and speed of the EBUS procedure lend itself to rapid onsite pathologic evaluation. Pathologists in the operating room can process and examine biopsy samples as they are obtained and can request additional samples to be taken immediately if needed.
  • EBUS is performed under moderate sedation or general anaesthesia.
  • Patients recover quickly and can generally go home the same day.

Thoracoscope: We use an enhanced thorascope, an endoscope-like device for medical thoracoscopy to examine the pleural space (inside the chest) through a little hole in the chest.

Sleep Study: Our sleep study or Overnight Diagnostic Polysomnogram (PSG) is used to diagnose sleep apnoea and parasomnia.

  • EBUS: A highly effective, minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose lung cancer, infections and other diseases causing enlarged lymph nodes in the chest.
  • Interventional Services: We offer interventional services such as Electrocoagulation for Haemoptysis, BAL/Lungs Biopsy, Foreign Body Removal, Tracheal Stenting (Flexo-Metallic and silicon) with our excellent infrastructure.
  • PFT: We offer Pulmonary Function Testing or PFT with latest technology and machinery to assess the functional status of the lung. It helps us understand how well the patient can inhale and exhale air and how well the gases such as oxygen move from the atmosphere into their body's circulation. We also offer Diffusion study, 6MWT, FeNO diagnostic and prognostic tool for lung disorder.

  • Asthma Clinic
  • TB (Tuberculosis) Clinic
  • ILD (Interstitial Lung Disease) clinic
  • Allergy Testing
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation
  • Quit Smoking Clinic

Diagnosis facilities: Our diagnostics facilities are equipped with the latest technology that offers precise detection of diseases. We offer various diagnostic tests related to a pulmonary and respiratory disorder such as Pulmonary Function Test (PFT), Sleep studies, Pulmonary imaging, Ultrasound, CT-scan, Bronchoscopy, Thoracoscopy, EBUS–convex probe (first), Medical Thoracoscopy + pleural biopsy, Complete PFT with diffusion capacity, 6-min walk test, FeNO Level. We also offer diagnostic services for Lung Cancer & Pulmonary Vascular disorders such as pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hypertension. Our speciality diagnosis services include Lung Biopsy, EBUS, Foreign Body Removal, Sleep Disorder & COPD.
