Services

Pulmonary medicine addresses lung conditions, including tumors, interstitial disorders and occupational disease. Some of the common illnesses treated by our pulmonary medicine physicians include:

  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pleural effusions
  • Pulmonary edema
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Lung infections
  • Lung cancer
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Silicosis (also known as “miner's asthma”)
  • Occupational lung disorders

Treatment for pulmonary conditions can include medication, pulmonary rehabilitation  and, in some cases, surgery.

Pulmonologists frequently partner with Mount Nittany Medical Center's radiology department   for X-rays to diagnose tumors, structural abnormalities and infectious processes.

Pulmonary function testing is a common diagnostic tool. It involves a patient sitting inside a special chamber, where they breathe normally, take deep breaths and breathe out as fully as possible. A device called a spirometer can be used to test for conditions such as asthma.

Additionally, Mount Nittany Health's sleep labs are overseen by the pulmonary medicine department.

Smoking cessation

The American Cancer Society and the Pennsylvania Department of Health provide a free Quitline, offering smokers personal support and help in quitting smoking. If you have a smoking habit, take the first step toward improving your health by calling 877.724.1090.
