PFT (Spirometry / Pulmonary Function Testing)

PFT or Lungs Function Test is a very crucial diagnostic tool useful for diagnosing majority of the chest disorders like asthma, COPD, IPF, chronic cough, etc. It is also used in pre-employment fitness evaluation, occupation related and smoking related lung diseases. PFT done periodically can tell you about the progress of the disease process or the quantum of improvement. At ‘Chest Clinic, Sion’ to minimise the chances of testing errors, PFT (spirometry) is done by well trained technicians under the direct supervision of chest specialist doctor.

Peakflometry

Peakflometer is a simple device to monitor the progress of airway diseases like asthma & COPD. It is an important tool to upscale or downscale the ongoing medication and patients are encouraged to use it regularly on their own.

Pulse Oximetry

Pulse oximetry is a simple non-invasive method of monitoring the oxygen saturation of haemoglobin in blood, which in most cases reflects the gas exchanging capabilities of the respiratory system. Testing is provided complementary to every patient at every visit.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation programme aims at improving the quality of life of a chronically ill patient who often finds it difficult to carry out even the daily life activities. The Programme includes exercise training, , nutritional counselling, meditation, yogasanas and other capacity improving & energy conserving techniques.

BiPAP/CPAP/O2 Therapy Rental

Noninvasive ventilation, such as CPAP or BiPAP is used in patients with sleep disorders like sleep apnea, severe stable COPD and the obesity-hypoventilation syndrome. BiPAP is also indicated for patients who have chronic respiratory insufficiency or respiratory failure and can no longer breathe adequately on their own.

Polysomnography (Sleep Study)

There is a lot of attention being given to sleep medicine nowadays. With the sedentary lifestyle and growing problem of obesity, sleep disorders have been on a rise. Untreated sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension, heart disease, stroke, depression, diabetes and other chronic diseases. Sleep study helps in diagnosing various types of sleep disorders including sleep apnea. It is indicated in patients who complain of snoring, daytime sleepiness, excessive fatigue as a result of fragmented sleep.

Chest X-ray

Chest radiographs are used to diagnose many conditions involving the chest wall, including its bones, and also structures contained within the thoracic cavity including the lungs, heart, and great vessels. Pneumonia and congestive heart failure are very commonly diagnosed by chest radiograph. Chest radiographs are also used to screen for job-related lung disease in industries such as mining where workers are exposed to dust.

SPUTUM TEST

A sputum culture is a test to detect and identify bacteria or fungi that infect the lungs or breathing passages. Sputum is a thick fluid produced in the lungs and in the adjacent airways. Normally, fresh morning sample is preferred for the bacteriological examination of sputum. A sample of sputum is collected in a sterile, wide-mouthed, dry, leak-proof and break-resistant plastic-container and sent to the laboratory for testing.

Vaccination

People with asthma or COPD are at higher risk for serious problems from certain vaccine-preventable diseases. Getting vaccinated is an important step in staying healthy. If you have lung disease, talk with your doctor about getting your vaccinations up-to-date.COPD and asthma cause your airways to swell and become blocked with mucus, which can make it hard to breathe. Certain vaccinepreventable diseases can also increase swelling of your airways and lungs. The combination of the two can lead to pneumonia and other serious respiratory illnesses.
