Acute Pulmonary Conditions

An acute infection of the lung parenchyma, typically caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi, resulting in fever, cough, shortness of breath, and chest pain. Our pulmonologists offer rapid diagnosis through imaging studies, such as chest X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans, and provide appropriate antibiotic therapy, oxygen supplementation, and supportive care to manage pneumonia and promote recovery.

Blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs, usually due to blood clots traveling from the legs or other parts of the body, leading to chest pain, shortness of breath, and hemoptysis. Our pulmonology specialists perform thorough evaluations, including imaging studies such as computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA), and offer anticoagulation therapy, thrombolytic agents, and other interventions to manage pulmonary embolism and prevent recurrence.

A severe lung condition characterized by inflammation and fluid buildup in the air sacs, resulting in profound hypoxemia and respiratory failure. Our pulmonologists provide advanced ventilatory support, including mechanical ventilation and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) therapy, and employ lung-protective strategies to manage ARDS and optimize oxygenation.

Sudden worsening of COPD symptoms, such as cough, sputum production, and dyspnea, often triggered by respiratory infections or environmental factors. Our pulmonology team offers prompt assessment, bronchodilator therapy, corticosteroid treatment, and supplemental oxygen to manage acute COPD exacerbations and prevent respiratory compromise.

Acute worsening of asthma symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath, triggered by allergens, respiratory infections, or environmental factors. Our pulmonologists conduct comprehensive evaluations, including spirometry and peak flow measurements, and offer bronchodilator therapy, corticosteroids, and personalized asthma action plans to control exacerbations and optimize asthma management.
