The page has been divided into TWO sections
· Common or overlapping respiratory symptoms of undetermined cause (eg, chronic cough, shortness of breath, and wheezing)
· Lung disorders that may be masked by, or complicating, other disorders (eg, bronchiectasis, asthma, acute bronchitis, infection)
· Patients who are refractory to or cannot tolerate standard therapy (eg, asthma, long-standing or recurrent pneumonia)
· Unusual clinical or diagnostic presentations
Evaluation of these patients with undefined, treatment-resistant, or otherwise complicated conditions often leads to a more precise diagnosis and improved medical or surgical treatment.
In many cases, once the problem is diagnosed, The Lung Center staff can quickly arrange for the needed care with other clinical specialists, pharmacists, insurance groups, medical device vendors, or pharmaceutical manufacturers. The Lung Center staff also manages the patient education and follow-up that can be critical to good outcomes.
We at The Lung Center have tried to work out a way for you to know about the latest guidelines and research on the various diseases encountered by you in your practise.
