Pulmonology

The Institute of Pulmonology provides services for patients of all ages on an ambulatory basis and for patients admitted to the adult and pediatric in-patient services of the hospitals. Within the Institute there is a bronchoscopy suite equipped to undertake diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopies in adults and children with all the necessary monitoring, safety and support services. Special auto-fluorescent bronchoscopy equipment is available for the early diagnosis of lung cancer and airway stents are inserted when needed. The diagnosis and removal of complex foreign bodies aspirated by young children is also undertaken in the bronchoscopy suite. A lung biology laboratory attached to the Institute is used to undertake basic research in cellular biology of the lung as well as to provide certain clinical diagnostic facilities.
