What is Pulmonology?

Pulmonology is a medical field that deals with finding and treating problems in the respiratory system, which includes the lungs and airways. Respiratory issues can vary from short-term infections like pneumonia and bronchitis to long-lasting diseases like asthma, COPD, and pulmonary fibrosis. These problems can really affect how well you breathe, your lung health, and how you live your life.


Our Approach to Pulmonology Care

At Volusia Medical Center, we believe in giving personalized, caring attention to each person with lung issues. We know that problems with breathing can really affect your everyday life. That's why we take the time to listen to your concerns, do careful check-ups, and make treatment plans just for you.

Services We Offer in Pulmonology

1. Comprehensive Pulmonary Evaluations

We do thorough checks to see how well your lungs are working, find out if you have any breathing problems, and create personalized treatment plans. We use advanced diagnostic tests and imaging methods to get accurate results and help decide on the best treatment options.

2. Asthma Management

We focus on understanding and managing asthma, which is a long-term breathing problem caused by inflammation in the airways and extra sensitivity in the lungs. Our asthma services include using medications, creating action plans, and teaching patients how to manage symptoms, avoid flare-ups, and live better.

3. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Care

COPD is a lung disease that gets worse over time and includes problems like chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Our care for COPD focuses on managing symptoms, helping people quit smoking, doing breathing exercises, using oxygen therapy, and preventing flare-ups to improve lung function and make life better for those with COPD.

4. Sleep Apnea Diagnosis and Treatment

We focus on finding and treating sleep problems like obstructive sleep apnea. Our services include sleep studies, using CPAP machines, mouthpieces, and lifestyle changes to make sleep better, reduce daytime tiredness, and lower health risks connected to sleep apnea.

5. Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Management

ILDs are a group of different lung problems that cause inflammation and scarring in the lung tissue. Our ILD services focus on figuring out the problem, treating it with medicine like drugs that reduce inflammation, oxygen therapy, and rehab to make breathing better and slow down the disease.

6. Lung Cancer Screening and Management

Lung cancer is a major cause of cancer deaths globally. Our lung cancer services include screening with low-dose CT scans to catch it early in people at high risk, tests to figure out what's going on (like bronchoscopy and biopsy), planning treatment with a team of specialists, managing symptoms, and giving supportive care to improve survival and quality of life for lung cancer patients.

7. Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program with different specialists to improve breathing, fitness, and life for people with ongoing lung issues. Our program has exercises, teaching, emotional support, and tips for making changes to help you breathe easier, feel better, and promote long-term healthy habits.

8. Smoking Cessation Support

Quitting smoking is really important for preventing and managing lung diseases like COPD and lung cancer, as well as heart problems. We offer support to help you quit smoking, like counseling, using patches or medicines with nicotine, trying different ways to change habits, and finding other ways to help you quit smoking and lower the risks to your health.

9. Home Ventilation Therapy

Home ventilation therapy is important for people with ongoing breathing problems caused by conditions like muscle disorders, obesity-related breathing issues, and chronic lung conditions. Our services include checking if ventilator support is needed, setting up and adjusting non-invasive ventilation (like special masks), teaching you how to use the equipment, solving any problems with it, and keeping an eye to make sure it's working well for you.

10. Bronchoscopic Interventions

Bronchoscopic interventions are minimally invasive procedures used to diagnose and treat lung problems. Our services include bronchoscopy, ultrasound to check the airways, taking small tissue samples, gentle heating of the airways, placing small tubes to open blocked airways, and other treatments to help with breathing issues, stop bleeding, remove things stuck in the airways, and treat small growths in the lungs.
